· Attending class and be prompt. Class attendance is part of class participation, which is a portion of your grade. Roll will be checked at the beginning of each class period. Since tardy entry to a class disrupts the class, your lateness for class will receive a reduction in points at the end of the semester.
· Having two tardies = 1 absence. You are tardy if the instructor has started class.
· Preparation of all the material in the lesson for each class (including reading, vocabulary study, etc.)
· Active participation in class with instructor and classmates. Participation in class is graded and is based on attentiveness, frequency and degree of effort.
· Checking your Park e-mail account and e-companion after each class meeting for handouts, assignments and a summary of the class.
· Quizzes. Students should be prepared for periodic quizzes, these quizzes could be unannouncedwhich will help to assimilate vocabulary and grammatical forms. There are no make-ups for quizzes, be sure that you come to class on time.
· Written assignments: (workbook, short composition, etc) are due at the beginning of the class. These should be placed on the instructor’s desk. Late workbook assignments will not be given credit and any assignment not completed will be assigned a grade of zero. No assignments will be accepted via e-mail, fax, etc.
· Oral Exam. An oral will be given twice during the semester. The goal of this test is to determine how well students can use the target language in real-life contexts. Five key aspects are graded: Vocabulary, Grammar, Accent, Fluency and Awareness of the Culture/Social conversations. You will complete the first test by presenting a dialogue with one or two partners, the second and final one will take the form of a conversation with the instructor.
· Written Exam: an exam will be given on each chapter except the last chapter, which will be included on the final exam. It will cover the material studied in that lesson and elements from previous chapters.
