  14. 14. Class Policies PROJECT FILE CONTENT Examination: Attendance for the mid-term exams is obligatory and no excuse (except one stating a serious medical condition) is allowed. Cheating is not tolerated AT ALL. The instructor allows one retake exam, but you have to attend the first exam and fail it or be absent with a valid excuse to be allowed to set for this Retake. Correction: If you believe that your work has been incorrectly graded (e.g. points were added/ subtracted incorrectly), you must contact the instructor in writing and clearly state the error you believe has occurred. 01/27/14 Dr. Noora Malki, al (c) all rights reserved 14
  15. 15. Class Policies PROJECT FILE CONTENT Recording lectures: Recording audio lectures is allowed. Uploading or distributing the recorded material without permission is not accepted. Mobiles in class: All cellular phones must be switched off or put on silent at all times during classes and exams. Plagiarism: Class work which show signs of plagiarism will not be marked. A student who submits a plagiarized work will be given another chance to resubmit an original work. 01/27/14 Dr. Noora Malki, al (c) all rights reserved 15
  16. 16. How to study for the Course? Q&A - Where to get required texts? This presentation includes direct links to all texts which you are supposed to study for this semester. Download them on your pc or laptop, or print them out. - Where to get the instructor’s lecture notes? After each lecture, you will find a power point presentation + some related files to the lecture on my website under the LANE 341 navigation menu. You can use these files to study for tests, but I encourage you to search for your own voice (express your ideas freely). - Grading? Check out the slide on Assessments and Grading. You have to follow the style of Academic Writing you studied during the 3rd-4th Levels because the proper expression of ideas necessitates that you use sound language and structure. 01/27/14 Dr. Noora Malki, al (c) all rights reserved 16
  17. 17. NEXT Lecture Q&A - The Nature of Literature We will look into some definitions and discuss them together, so I encourage you to download and read this file (pgs. 1-6). You can as well surf the net looking for the definition of literature that means the most to YOU. 01/27/14 Dr. Noora Malki, al (c) all rights reserved 17
