Through the study of writing stylistics, grammar and vocabulary presented in the main textbook, the reading of short stories and detective fiction, and viewing of films, students will actively practice reading, writing, speaking and listening skills in order to prepare for upper division courses. The success of the course depends on student preparation outside of class, and the active participation in class; students should plan on spending a minimum of three to five hours outside of class preparing for each new class session. **Students with disabilites should contact the professor to talk about any circumstances before the end of the second week of classes.** Course requirements : Attendance : Classes are held three days a week, generally Monday, Wednesday and Friday. The use of the X hour is at the professor’s discretion, but please, be advised that you should keep that time available for class. Students should contact their professor in the event that they are sick or there is a family emergency, which interferes with class attendance. Athletes who will be away for scheduled events must provide the professor with a written schedule at the beginning of the term. Only three unexcused absences from class are permitted each term. Five points will be taken off the participation grade for every unexcused absence after that. Preparation for class
