As IUSD implements new content area standards and educational initiatives, the Language Development Program staff and teachers continue to design, augment, and support the many programs and services we provide to a very diverse student population and community at-large. We have developed integrated instructional programs for both students and parents that support the whole child, focusing on the language, cognitive, and social-emotional needs of our second language learners and immigrant students. We recognize and appreciate the diverse assets that all students and their families bring to IUSD, and hope to further our leadership in developing a culturally aware and culturally competent district.

Students work in groups of up to 3. Labs are due two weeks from the day of the lab at 4:00 p.m

If there is a legitimate and forseeable reason why any Lab or the mid-term cannot be attended (such as holy
days of obligation) then it is the responsibility of the student to make a written request to the instructor for accommodation.
Such notification should be submitted before 4:00pm 10th January. 2010

Academic Accommodation

You may need special arrangements to meet your academic obligations during the term. For an accommodation request the processes are as follows:

Pregnancy obligation: write to me with any requests for academic accommodation during the first two weeks of class, or as soon as possible after the need for accommodation is known to exist. For more details visit the Equity Services website:

Religious obligation: write to me with any requests for academic accommodation during the first two weeks of class, or as soon as possible after the need for accommodation is known to exist. For more details visit the Equity Services website:

Students with disabilities requiring academic accommodations: in this course must register with the Paul Menton Centre for Students with Disabilities (PMC) for a formal evaluation of disability-related needs. Documented disabilities could include but are not limited to mobility/physical impairments, specific Learning Disabilities (LD), psychiatric/psychological disabilities, sensory disabilities, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), and chronic medical conditions. Registered PMC students are required to contact the PMC, 613-520-6608, every term to ensure that I receive your Letter of Accommodation, no later than two weeks before the first assignment is due or the first in-class test/midterm requiring accommodations. If you only require accommodations for your formally scheduled exam(s) in this course, please submit your request for accommodations to PMC by the last official day to withdraw from classes in each term. For more details visit the PMC website:

Health and Safety

All students and TAs are required to read the University Health-And-Safety document .
The parts that seems to especially apply to ELEC 4707 are:
Sect 5 part a)  Neither food nor beverages are permitted in the lab.
Sect 5 part i)  Know: Where the nearest fire extinguisher is.
  The number for emergencies. It is 613-520-4444 or just 4444 on Carleton phones,
    Where a first aid kit is. There is one in 4257 ME beside the single door. However do not treat things yourself; go to
            HEALTH AND COUNSELLING SERVICES (building TT on the Campus Map)
            2600 Training and Technology Centre, 613-520-6674.
Sect 6.3 part a) Clean up!
