- This is a graduate-level course. You will be expected to do work commensurate with that level even if you are an undergraduate. All assignments should represent your best effort.
- Good grades are not given by the teacher; they are earned by the student. (An "A" grade represents exceptionally good work. The grade for acceptable, average work is a "C.") Your responsibility as a student is to learn the material and complete the course requirements to the best of your ability. The teacher's responsibility is to help you accomplish these goals.
- Your participation in class discussions is essential. Remember, there are no stupid questions. When you ask a question, you may appear ignorant for a moment, but if you don't ask you may remain ignorant for a lifetime. We are all ignorant in some areas and expert in others, and we all have experiences and ideas to share. The primary purpose of class is to learn from each other.
- Assignments must be completed and turned in (at the beginning of the class period or when called for) on or before the date specified in the course calendar. Unless previous permission is granted by the teacher, late work will not be accepted. If you miss class, it is your responsibility to get the assignment from a classmate or the teacher.
- Plagiarism or any other form of cheating on any assignment will result in an automatic failing grade.
- As BYU students, members of this class are expected to support the BYU Honor Code, including the dress and grooming standards.
- As a prospective teacher of English to speakers of other languages, you will be expected to demonstrate a high level of quality in your writing. Assignments should be neat (preferably typed or done on a word processor when appropriate) and employ correct English. Assignments which do not measure up to this standard will earn an "I" grade and be returned to you for rewriting. When this leads to delay, the eventual grade will be lowered accordingly.
