|Semester||Spring Semester, 2021|
|Department||General Education Courses in Foreign Languages|
|Course Name||College English II|
|Prerequisite||College English I|
Class time will be devoted to activities that allow you to practice and interact in English. To successfully complete the course, you must prepare the assigned homework prior to class and, while in class actively participate in class discussions and pair/group work. Your final grades are determined by the following course components:
Students are expected to arrive at the class on time. Roll calls are taken regularly and active class participation is highly valued.
Periodically throughout the semester, speaking/writing exercises will be given in class. These exercises can NOT be made up.
You will give a group presentation during the semester. For the group presentation, you and your teammates will research and present your view on a topic in the textbook. The presentation should be approximately 5 minutes each student. More details will be provided in class.
There will be three written assignments based on the learning materials for the course.
All materials, including the readings, handouts, and information provided in class will potentially be included on mid-term and final exams. The mid-term exam is a written test, and the final exam contains a written test and an oral task. The written tests include vocabulary/grammar questions, a listening/reading section, and a short writing task. The oral task requires you to answer three or more questions, each question for one minute. The instructor will evaluate your ability to respond to the questions appropriately and to speak for an extended period of time without hesitation, deviation or repetition. No make-up exams will be given unless you have received the instructor’s permission in advance.
