Educational Philosophy: The instructor's educational philosophy is one of respect, engagement, interaction and investigation.Based on our readings, listening exercises, and presentations, students are expected to bring their own experience and knowledge to share and engage other students in meaningful academic and day-to-day contexts. The instructor provides an environment to emphasize functions and structures simultaneously.
Instructor Learning Outcomes
Attendance is mandatory and counts as 10% of students' grades. Unexcused
absences will count against the final grade in the class. Unexcused absences
during four consecutive class periods will result in an automatic withdrawal
from the course. There will be daily quizzes about the previous lesson.
Participation in the class and in group work in particular is critical and
counts as 10% of the final grade. There will be pop quizzes, bi-weekly assignments, and
bi-weekly writing assignments. Writing assignments will serve as tests for structures
and skills we will be focusing on at that time.
Bi-weekly assignments: 25%
Bi-weekly writing assignments: 40%
Pop quizzes: 15%
Late Submission of Course Materials:
In class quizzes and presentations cannot be made up.If a student has missed an assignment, the student must turn it in within one week of missed assignment. The student is responsible for learning what was missed in class.
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. Earphones
must be removed and put away prior to the start of class. I will confiscate
any electronic devices that I see or hear. If you have an emergency situation,
speak to me before class.
An open learning environment is critical to language learning success.
Students will respect each other as well as the instructor. Unkind or
derogatory comments about other students will not be tolerated. Class and
group discussions are expected to be conducted in English. You are in this
class to improve your English; I assume you do not need improvement in your
Students are expected to actively contribute to their education and the
education of others in the class by sharing their ideas and expertise.
