Attendance
Attendance is important, and students are expected to come to class ON TIME! (Lateness policy will be explained in the first class.) Students who are absent for more than half of total class hours without an appropriate reason will receive 0 for both Attendance and Participation portions, and cannot partake the final exam.
 
Participation
The participation grade is based on homework preparation and the contribution the student makes to the learning experience of others in class, such as class/group discussions and information exchange. Contribution includes his/her questions to the instructor, insights and comments regarding class content, answers to the instructor’s questions, and reactions to other students’ contributions. 
 
Listening Quizzes
Three quizzes related to the topics discussed in class will be given. Each listening quiz includes multiple-choice questions and note-taking tasks. Missed quizzes cannot be made up.
 
Group Presentation (about 20 minutes)
Each group is in charge of ONE topic assigned. Members in each group should discuss how to present the topic and find relevant information. It is hoped that the group could coordinate the presentation well (teamwork) and design interactive tasks for the rest of the class (communication + presentation skills). While presenting, each group will be evaluated by the instructor as well as by their peers.
 
Final Exam
The final exam contains an in-class listening test and an individual speech video (about 3 minutes). The individual speech video must be uploaded by the deadline and the performance should reflect what they have learned from this course.
