Quizzes and exams will measure your knowledge of the readings. Dr. Charles J.

Classroom Rules of Engagement for Air Force Cadets 1. Attendance: Cadets must attend at least 80 percent of scheduled class sessions to achieve a passing grade. However, you should certainly strive to attend ALL classes as doing the minimum necessary is not encouraged either in AFROTC or in the operational Air Force. For those ‘academic only’ students, while you do not have a minimum attendance requirement, keep in mind that your grade is based partly on participation (and therefore attendance).

2. Food and Drink: Food and drinks are allowed during normal class times so long as they do not become a distraction. Please refrain from eating and drinking during any presentations by fellow classmates. I also expect everyone to be responsible and clean up after themselves. 3. Military protocol: Cadets - observe military customs and courtesies at all times. Call the room to attention when the instructor (or a military officer senior to your instructor) enters or leaves the room. If an officer senior to your instructor enters the room during a lecture from your instructor, do not call the room to attention. Non-Cadets – are not required to come to attention, but please stand along with their classmates for uniformity. 4. Uniform: Uniform wear is not mandatory for each class period (but dress will be according to the Detachment 925 Commander’s discretion). When giving a formal presentation (briefing), cadets will be required to wear their Air Force service dress uniform. 5. Cell phones: Cell phones will not be allowed in the classroom. There will be a designated place for you to leave them while in class. This is to simulate a real military briefing environment. Assignments: You will have opportunity to earn the following points: Exam #1 Exam #2 Classroom Participation Impromptu Briefing 40 points 40 points 15 points 5 points Grading. On the basis of 100 total points, I will assign letter grades as follows: UW-Madison/Edgewood/MATC UW-Whitewater/MBBC A 100 – 93 A 100-93 C- 72-70* AB 92 – 88 A- 92-90 D+ 69-66 B 87 – 83 B+ 89-87 D 65-63 BC 82 – 78 B 86-83 D- 62-60** C 77 – 70* B- 82-80 F 59-0 D 69 – 60** C+ 79-77 F 59 – 0 C 76-73 *Minimum passing grade for cadets ** Minimum passing grade for academic only students Attachments: 1.
