Requirement/Grading

 


















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:




  • Participation (including attendance 10%, effort on speaking in class 5%, and homework completion 5%): 20%

  • In-class exercises/quizzes: 20%

  • Oral presentations 15% [Group Oral Presentation during week 12-13]

  • Written assignments: 15% [3 written assignments]

  • CCC review exam: 15%

  • Final speaking exam: 15%



 



Participation



Your participation grade will be based on your attendance, homework preparation, and the contribution you make to the learning experience of others. Contribution includes your in-class questions to the instructor, insights and comments regarding class content, answers to the instructor’s questions, and reactions to other students’ contributions.



In-class exercises/quizzes



Periodically throughout the semester, writing/listening exercises and pop quizzes will be given in class. These exercises and quizzes can NOT be made up. 



Oral presentations



You will give one group presentation (group of 5) in this semester. For this presentation, each group will decide on a topic and carry out a small-scale questionnaire survey. The presentation should be approximately 15 minutes. Each group should discuss their topic and hand in their outline to the instructor at week 9 for preview. Peer-review and self-reflection will also be included in grading. More details will be provided in class.



 



Written assignments



There are three writing assignments based on the course targets. These written exercises are paragraph-based. Your works should show you have completed and thought seriously and critically about the readings and videos provided for you. You are also encouraged to research the topic and cite your sources. The grading rubric for the written assignments is available on the class website.



 



Cross-Cultural Curriculum review exam



This written exam includes 15 True/False questions and 2 open-ended questions from the six units of CCC. Watch the videos as many times as necessary to familiarize yourself with the content before the exam.



Examinations



This oral exam includes two parts. The first part is on pronunciation and the second part requires you to answer two questions from the textbook units 6, 7, and 9; each question for two minutes. 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. The grading rubric for the speaking test is available on the class website. No make-up exams will be given unless you have received the instructor’s permission in advance.



 



Notes:




  1. All assignments must be handed in in electronic forms unless specified.

  2. Active extra learning max. 5% [Provide evidence of your active learning of English to earn your extra points.]

  3. Family trip and personal training are not considered appropriate reasons for absence.
