  2. 2. Grades  Grades are based on points for:  Presentations  Short Writing assignments  Quizzes  Tests  Your grade is determined by the number of points you’ve earned divided by the number of points possible.
  3. 3. Attendance Policy  More than 4 unexcused absences will result in a lowering of 3 points off your final grade.  E.G. if you miss 5 classes with an unacceptable excuse and your final grade is 60%, you would earn a 57% final grade.  Three tardies equals 1 absence.
  4. 4. Excused Absences  When you are sick or death in the family, these are excused absences.
  5. 5. Required Books  World Pass Advanced  About a Boy, N. Hornby, Penguin Readers  The Great Gatsby, F.S. Fitzgerald, Penguin Readers  A portfolio  Handouts
  6. 6. Late Assignments  If an assignment is late, you lose 10% of the total points per day.  So if a writing assignment’s value is 20 points, but is 2 days late, you lose 4 points.  You may only turn in a late assignment if you notify me that there’s a problem 24 hours in advance.  I will not accept an assignment that is more than one week late.
  7. 7. Plagiarism  Plagiarism is dishonesty in school work.  It includes:  Handing in a paper from the internet as your own original work,  Handing in writing that you did not write yourself, and  Handing in a paper you wrote for another course.
  8. 8. Consequences of Plagiarism  Work that is plagiarized will receive zero points, an F.  If you plagiarize, you are likely to fail the course.  You do not need to plagiarize. You are all too smart. If you need help with an assignment, I can help you. It is unwise to try to cheat.
  9. 9. Cheating  Students who cheat on exams, will receive 0 points.  No cell phones are allowed with the student while taking an exam.  If you are found to have a cell phone in or around your desk while taking an exam, you will receive a zero for that exam. Period. End of story.
