Greek 1 Honor Pledge

As a member of Dr. Reider’s Greek 1 class, I agree to honor the following principles, in addition to the general class expectations covered separately:
1. I will not cheat by sharing answers with another student during either a test or a quiz, or by copying from another paper or knowingly allowing my paper to be copied by another. I understand that my teacher trusts me to abide by this agreement even if out of the room for a moment.
2. Although I understand that I may confer with others in doing my homework, I will not simply copy another student’s work and present it as mine. My name on any work signifies that I have done that work, not another.
3. I will not use any translation, published or online, as an aid for my homework.
4. I will tell my teacher before class if I have not been able to complete an assignment.
5. I will not write vocabulary words in my text.
6. I will not copy down translations as other students present them in class.
7. I will always respect other people’s property. I will not borrow books or notes from others or the classroom without their specific permission.
8. I will conduct myself in class in a manner conducive to self-respect and the respect of others.
