Educational Philosophy: The role of the teacher is to create a lively, challenging and safe learning environment; to present new information in an interesting, relevant manner; and to help students formulate and express their ideas with improved tools of communication. She will regularly evaluate student progress and assist students who are struggling in a specific area.
Learning Outcomes: Core Learning Outcomes
Link to Class RubricClass Assessment: Attendance is mandatory and will be 10% of final grades.
Participation in the class is critical and will be 5% of final grades.
There will be daily quizzes, unit tests, and two major exams (midterm/final). Students will also be evaluated on completion of homework assignments and a project or essay for each unit covered in class.
Late Submission of Course Materials:
Attendance is mandatory and has a big influence on your grade. Missed daily quizzes cannot be made up.
If a student are absent on a test day, it is THE STUDENT'S responsibility to contact the testing center in the academic underground (816-584-6887) to schedule a re-take. Make up tests will be available for one (1) week in the testing center following the actual test date. If you are unable to take the test within that week, you must contact me before the test is collected to avoid receiving a 0 on the test. Missed tests resulting from an unexcused absence will result in an automatic deduction of 1 letter grade from the test score.
Classroom Rules of Conduct: No electronic devices of any kind will be allowed in the classroom: no cell phones, no iPods, no computers visible or audible during class. I will confiscate any electronic devices that I see or hear.
An open learning environment is critical to language learning success. Students will respect each other as well as the instructor. I will not tolerate unkind comments about other students.
Group presentations require full participation from all members of the group. If you are absent from planning or giving a presentation, you may not receive the same grade as the rest of the group.
