Students may miss a second class, but are required to make upthe class by reading the class transcript (for online classes only), the weekly lesson, and complete a reflectionexercise on the lesson for that week.PLEASE NOTE THE FOLLOWING:- Attendance for online classes will be taken each class through a question asked during class that allstudents must respond to in order to be marked present for class . If the student does not respond to theattendance question posed by the instructor the student will be considered absent.-Participation will also be graded based on completion of the self-monitoring journal. Students must keep afood/exercise journal (record of the calorie/fat intake each day and exercise completed each day) a minimumof 10 of the 12 weeks of class. The journals must be complete (i.e., include a minimum of 5 days of self-monitoring). Exam Policy:  There are no exams for this class. Readings: There is no required textbook for this course. The Eating Well Diet: Introducing the Vtrim Weight-Loss Program   is an optional book for the program (basic guide book and cookbook based on the Vtrim program). The book isavailable at the UVM Bookstore. ATTENDANCE You are expected to be in class each week. Attendance is a factor in your final grade for the course. If youmiss an online class, the transcript from the online class is available for review for 1 week after each class. Thetranscript will be replaced each week with the most recent meeting transcript. If you miss a class, you mustreview the transcript within the week or you will not be able to view it. For inperson classes, the lesson summary is available under the “Lessons” tab of the Vtrim website and can be reviewed there. The official policy for religious holidays   is as follows: “Students have the right to practice the religion of their  choice. Each semester, students should submit in writing to their instructors, by the end of the second full week of classes, their documented religious holiday schedule for the semester.” You should be able to observe any religious holidays and still meet the attendance requirement for this class. CLASSROOM ETIQUETTE You are expected to focus on your Vtrim class when you are in attendance and not be checking email,updating your Facebook status, etc. while logged in to your weekly meeting. The group instructor will be able totell if you are logged on but not participating. Please observe the following class group guidelines:  3 Protect Confidentiality In order to feel comfortable sharing with each other, personal information heard in the room must stay in theroom. Do not repeat anything talked about in the group if it is of a sensitive nature. This is extremely important.Do not use last names in referring to other members of the group to people outside the program. Arrive On Time Please make every effort to be punctual. Sessions are planned so that all allotted time is utilized. If you mustlog in after the class begins or if you need to log out early, please let your instructor know in advance ifpossible. Your instructor will be concerned if you aren't there or if you disappear from the chat room withoutnotice. Attend Each Session The lesson content and materials have been carefully crafted to promote lifestyle changes and weightmanagement. The sessions build on one another and therefore it is critical that you make every effort to attendeach session. Naturally, you may have to miss a session due to illness or other unusual circumstances; youcan view the transcript from class for one week after the meeting. Keep the Group In the Loop You are an important group member. The group depends on you and cares about your wellbeing. If you knowyou will not make a meeting, email your instructor. The group members will ask about you and wonder whereyou are if you suddenly disappear. Participate Please share. This is the best way to allow others to get to know you. What you have to say matters and mayhelp other group members. Take Your Share of the “Air”   Allow others the same courtesy. Side conversations are distracting. So, one at a time, please. Avoid Criticizing Everyone has a uniqu e personality and perspective. Respecting each other’s ideas is a requirement of a healthy group environment.
