    DISABILITY ACCOMMODATIONS. The University of Massachusetts Amherst is committed to providing an equal educational opportunity for all students. If you have a documented physical, psychological, or learning disability on file with Disability Services (DS), Learning Disabilities Support Services (LDSS), or Psychological Disabilities Services (PDS), you may be eligible for reasonable academic accommodations to help you succeed in this course. If you have a documented disability that requires an accommodation, please notify Robert and Sharon within the first two weeks of the semester so that we may make appropriate arrangements.
    ACADEMIC DISHONESTY STATEMENT. Academic dishonesty is prohibited in all programs of the University. Academic dishonesty includes but is not limited to: cheating, fabrication, plagiarism, and facilitating dishonesty. Appropriate sanctions may be imposed on any student who has committed an act of academic dishonesty. Since students are expected to be familiar with this policy and the commonly accepted standards of academic integrity, ignorance of such standards is not normally sufficient evidence of lack of intent.

    Work Study Students: TEAMS places tutors in elementary and middle schools in partnership with the Five College America Reads/Counts program.
    In order to provide meaningful service to the community and to make classroom discussions authentic for college students, each TEAMS tutor engages in a total of 40 hours of tutoring throughout the semester—four to five hours each week at their school site. In addition, tutors meet every Tuesday afternoon in a 2 ½ hour workshop to discuss key issues in education, participate in experiences about topics including identity formation, gender in the classroom, race and racism in schooling, testing and tracking, multicultural schools, and effective tutoring strategies and scenarios, and utilize technology for learning.
