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.
There will be weekly 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: All assignments are due the following class, with the exception of unit projects, which are due according to the posted schedule.
Homework and other written assignments will be turned in at the beginning of class on the due date. Make sure that assignments are printed well ahead of class time to avoid printer problems. Late assignments will be docked 1 letter grade per day late.
Students providing a legitimate excuse for their absence (doctor's note or medical certificate) may submit work when they return to class without penalty. Late work due to unexcused absences will be docked 1 letter grade per day late.
Attendance is mandatory and has a big influence on your grade. Missed daily quizzes cannot be made up.
If a student is 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.
