Midterm take-home exam: At the beginning of sixth week, students will receive the exam. It will require substantial library research of material beyond that covered in class in order to be completed satisfactorily. The exam's due date will be Tuesday of the seventh week and late exams will not be accepted or corrected.
Presentation: Each student will choose a subject for a final presentation by the fourth week of the quarter. They will turn in a preliminary description and bibliography in the ninth week. At the end of Fall quarter, students will give an interim oral report on their research which will continue through Winter quarter and conclude in a research paper and oral presentation. Students will have the opportunity to share and discuss their projects in seminar during Fall quarter.
Workshop Portfolio: Students will keep an organized portfolio containing all activities and assignments completed for the workshop on teaching language methodology. Students will turn their portfolios at the end of week nine for evaluation.
Deadlines are sacred and no exemptions will be made
under any circumstance.
If students have problems with any aspect of the program's contents or activities, it is their responsibility to contact the faculty immediately in order to face difficulties squarely instead of letting them worsen.
