You are required to complete the previous work at home by due dates so that you can present and lead discussions in class. You are expected to present and lead discussion concerning the assigned readings related to the topic of the week. The grading rubric for these projects will be offered in our class FB group.
Attendance & Participation

Contribution includes your in-class questions to the instructor, insights and comments regarding readings and class content, answers to the instructor’s questions, and reactions to other students’ contributions.
Your midterm will be closely related to two special activities, English Tour and World Café II.
