Course Instructor Survey
Dec 2 Review for Exam #3
Dec 4 Exam #3
Textbook: Antonio SnchezRomeralo and Fernando Ibarra. Antologa de Autores Espaoles Antiguos y Modernos. Vol. I: Antiguos
Additional short readings will be posted on Blackboard.
Grading System:
Four Writing Assignments (10% each) 40%
Three onehour exams (15% each) 45%
Homework 10%
Attendance and Participation 5%
PlusMinus grading will be used in this course.
Writing Assignments: Over the course of the semester students will have the opportunity to develop their writing skills through short (23 page) writing assignments. Homework assignments will also give students a chance to write, although some of the homework will be more objective in nature. I will distribute topics for the writing assignments, though students are also free to write on topics of their choice. If you choose your own topic, it must 1) focus on the texts that are our objects of study at the time and 2) be such that it can be developed successfully in 23 pages. While content will, of course, be important in the grading of the writing assignments, grammar, accents and correctness of expression in Spanish will count heavily. Write and proofread with care!
Exams: There will be three onehour exams during the semester, approximately one every five weeks. They will consist of brief identifications, short answers, and brief essays. Correct content will be my major concern when grading the exams.
Homework: Students are also responsible for turning in regular homework assignments. These assignments will be posted on Blackboard. Homework assignments are due in class on the dates indicated on the syllabus.
Attendance: Attendance will be taken daily. Students are expected ot come to class, to be prepared, and to participate in the discussion.
Use of Spanish or Aqu se habla espaol: The tests, writing assignments and homework are to be written in Spanish. The class will be conducted primarily in Spanish and class discussions will provide an opportunity for students to practice their spoken Spanish.
Blackboard and Email: I will be using Blackboard to post announcements, reading guides, homework, and other class materials. You should check Blackboard and email at least once a day, especially if you miss class.
Academic Dishonesty: Cheating, plagiarism, turning in someone elses work as your own are serious offenses and will result in a grade of zero for the assignment in question.
MakeUp and Extension Policy: If you cannot make it to class the day of a test or the day an assignment is due and have a valid reason (for example, illness, family emergency, religious holiday) then you may take a makeup or receive an extension. Please call my office (2324513) or send me an email as soon as you realize you will not be able to come to class.
Students with Disabilities: For students with disabilities, I am available to discuss any appropriate academic accommodations that might be necessary for this course. Before course accommodations are made, a student may be required to provide documentation to the Office of the Dean of StudentsServices for Students with Disabilities.
