TEXTBOOK: Can’t Stop Talking by George Rooks
Upon completion of this course, students will be able to:
Regular attendance is expected.
You are expected to come to class on time. Regular lateness is seen as a sign of a bad attitude.
You are expected to come to class ready and willing to participate. The success of the class depends on that willingness and so does your grade.
· Turn off cell phones and pagers during class.
Your final grade is primarily based on your ability to understand spoken English and communicate in spoken English. Quizzes and tests will measure those abilities. Attendance and attitude are important factors. The quality of your PARTICIPATION is a key to your success in this class and your grade.
· Your listening comprehension skills, the quality of your participation and willingness to work cooperatively with others, and your presentations will have approximately equal weight in determining your final grade.
STUDENTS WITH SPECIAL NEEDS:
Students with disabilities who have accommodation needs are required to meet with the Disability Support Services (DSS) office, room B233-G (telephone 425-564-2498 or TTY 425-564-4110), to establish their eligibility for accommodation. The DSS office will provide each eligible student with an accommodation letter. Students who require accommodation in class must review the DSS accommodation letter with each instructor during the first week of the quarter.
Students with mobility challenges who may need assistance in case of an emergency situation or evacuation should register with Disability Support Services, or review those needs with the instructor as well.
PLAGIARISM AND CHEATING
Students are in ELI classes to learn English and ELI teachers are here to help them. Cheating makes that harder for both the students and the teachers. There are different kinds of cheating: plagiarism, “borrowing” a classmate’s homework (partially or wholly), using an essay or a presentation from a previous quarter, using “cheat notes”, and copying answers from classmates’ papers during tests.
Plagiarism is using someone else’s words or ideas as your own in both writing and oral presentations. It is cheating and is not acceptable in American classes.
Examples of plagiarism are:
· Copying from a Web page, book or article
· Buying papers
· Copying from another student
· Using a friend’s paper from a previous quarter
If you plagiarize:
· First time: your teacher will work with you so that you understand what not to do
· Second time: Fail the assignment
· Third time: Fail the class and be reported to the Associate Dean of Student Services. Possibly be asked to leave the school
