To do well in this class:
International students are welcome, but you are expected to attend all classes and abide by the NCCU schedule and the deadlines for assignments on the course schedule.
Homework, Assignments, and Projects
KEEP ALL YOUR WORK UNTIL AFTER THE FINAL SEMESTER GRADES ARE POSTED!!
Quizzes CANNOT BE MADE UP IF MISSED. Exams may only be made up or rescheduled for serious health or family emergencies. Family trips are not family emergencies.
Attendance and tardiness: I will take attendance almost every week!:
The most important thing is that you SHOW UP ON TIME FOR CLASS!
Final grades will be heavily based on classroom participation and homework/regular preparation. There will also be midterm and/or final exams, writing assignments, and presentations. All materials, including the written text, handouts, and any information spoken in class or written on the board will potentially be included on quizzes. Take notes. Keep all of the work you do during the course until after the final grades have been announced.
Final grades will be determined by the following:
This course is conducted in English and since it is a language course, students are expected to make their presentations and write assignments in English. I also hope that all students participate and work in English during class. However, there are times when you will need to use your first language to help you start assignments and to confirm your understanding. That is fine. Please just try your best to work in English in the class. The sooner you start working on your topics in English, the sooner you will gain confidence in your ability.
If you have a problem or concern you need to discuss with me, please do not hesitate to speak with me in Chinese. I can also read Chinese, so you may write email to me in Chinese, but including English will be helpful.
Plagiarism and cheating
If any student is found to have copied any part of an assignment from any other source, the student will get a “0” for that assignment and be asked to do it again. If a student is caught plagiarizing a second time, he/she will fail the course. If any student is found to have cheated on a quiz or test, the same policy will stand.
If any student has any special needs due to a physical or mental handicap, please let me know so that any arrangements can be made to facilitate your success in this class.
