Featured topics include mission and organization of the Air Force, officership, and professionalism, military customs and courtesies, Air Force officer opportunities, and an introduction to communication skills. Leadership Laboratory is mandatory for AFROTC cadets and complements this course by providing cadets with leadership and followership experience. Course Objectives 1. Know historical events, leaders, and milestones that contributed to the development of the USAF. 2. Comprehend that effective listening positively affects mission accomplishment. 3. Know the various services and activities found on a typical Air Force base. 4. Know the basic characteristics of war. 5. Comprehend the importance of Core Values to Air Force members. 6. Know the basic concepts of Air Force leadership. 7. Know the importance of managing diversity and the concept and consequences of harassment. 8. Know the meaning of the Oath of Office and Commissioning. 9. Demonstrate basic communicative skills Texts / Reading Assignments: It is highly recommended you read the assigned selections before the relevant lecture. If it is evident that nobody is reading, I will institute pop-quizzes. Dr. Charles J. Nath III, The Foundations of the United States Air Force (2013/2014) ***available at 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 Det 925 Commander’s discretion). When giving a formal presentation (briefing), cadets will be required to wear their a blues 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. 6. Assignments: Aside from exams and classroom participation, you will be required to write a 1-page minimum Background Paper (see the Tongue & Quill for format) on an Airpower topic of your choosing. This is a great opportunity for you to further research an interest area of yours in greater depth. In the past, popular topics included aircraft, career fields, famous Air Force figures, or famous Air Force campaigns or battles. You will also give a 3-5 minute briefing on the same topic. Assignments: You will have opportunity to earn the following points: Exam #1 Exam #2 (non-cumulative) Classroom Participation Background Paper Briefing 30 points 30 points 15 points 15 points 10 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 SCOTT R.
