No make-‐ups. At the end of the semester, the 3 lowest scores will be dropped. Tests: With a legitimate reason given at least one day before the scheduled test, each student is entitled to ONE (1) make-‐up test. The make-‐up test must be taken within 3 days after the originally scheduled test is given. In case of an emergency, the arrangement for a make-‐up test must be made as soon as possible. A second make-‐up will not be possible. At the end of the semester, the lowest test score will be dropped. All make-‐ups must be taken during office hours. Written and Listening Homework Assignments: 1. Students are required to prepare a notebook for the writing of HW #1 and HW#2 of each lesson. 2. HW#2 must be re-‐written in characters by hand in the designated character writing papers attached at the end of the 412L packet. Neatness is important. Points may be deducted due to sloppiness. HW#2 is due on the next day after the answers are discussed in class. No more than two late HW#2s will be accepted during the semester. After that, you will receive a “zero” for all missing assignments. Homework past due by more than one week will not be
accepted. 3. ** Students who are more than 5 minutes late for HW#2 discussion days will be considered ½ absent. 4. ** Students who come to class without completing HW#2 in characters in advance will be considered absent. 5. The five listening homework assignments can be found on Canvas under Quizzes. Or you can click the listening homework assignment on Canvas Syllabus, and it will take you to the assignment directly. You should translate the Chinese sentences you hear into English. Be as precise as possible but in good English. You can drop the lowest grade. Oral Exam: This exam is done in the classroom, and, for overflow, at scheduled time at the instructor’s office. See Course Pack pp. 36-‐38 for details. No make-‐ups. Dialogue Test: This test is done in the classroom, and, for overflow, at the scheduled time at the instructor’s office. You will be paired with two different classmates to do the test. Dialogues are on pp. 42, 43, 45, 47, 48 of the packet. No make-‐up. iii Class Activity: Before each class activity day, students should prepare for activities found in pp. 42-‐49. Be ready to communicate with a partner in Chinese. This is a chance to practice your Chinese oral skill. You might be asked to conduct the conversation in front of the class toward the end of the period. Preparation: All students have 10 preparation points at the beginning of the semester. Each preparation is worth 0.5 point. Students are required to prepare for each class day's material according to the Homework Schedule (pp. vii-‐x, key word: prepare) in the course pack. On days when answers of Homework #1 or Class Activities are to be discussed, those who did not prepare will automatically receive a zero (0) for preparation for that day. On days when answers of homework #2 are to be discussed, those who did not prepare will be considered absent. (See also #3 and #4 of Written and Listening Homework Assignments.) Attendance (Mandatory): 1. You are allowed a maximum of 3 absences without penalty during the semester for appointments, interviews, illnesses, car problems, etc. Each subsequent absence will result in a deduction of 0.5 point from your final semester grade. If you have a prolonged illness, timely communication with the instructor is important. A doctor’s note is required upon return in order for some of those absences due to long illness to be excused. 2. Being more than 10 minutes late for class or leaving class more than 10 minutes early will be considered a half (0.5) absence. On days when HW#2 is discussed, being late for more than 5 minutes is considered a half (0.5) absence. 3. Having more than 7 absences, with the 3 penalty-‐free ones included, will result in a final semester letter grade deduction. (Ex. Aà A-‐, A-‐àB+…) 4. Having more than 12 absences, with the 3 penalty-‐free ones included, the student will receive an “F” as the final semester grade. Video Presentation: This is a group project, with each group consists of 4-‐5 students. You will choose from a list of topics and make an 8-‐10 minutes video presentation. The script should include sentence patterns and vocabulary from this semester. Each group will select one coordinator to delegate tasks and to keep track of progress so the video script and the video can be completed on time for end-‐of-‐semester presentation in class. Because of the extra time and work involved, the coordinator will get 5 bonus points in the final exam. The group will also evaluate the percentage of contribution each member has towards the project at the end. The major requirement of the video is that the video has to have Chinese subtitles for the dialogues for the benefit of the classmates to follow the story. The whole presentation will be evaluated on the first and final drafts (2*25%), a joint grade, and the final production (50%) on pronunciation (20%), fluency of the dialogue delivery (20%), and presentation (10%). The detailed instructions can be found on Canvas. iv Extra Credit Assignments This is an optional assignment for those who want additional two (2) semester points. However, all students are strongly encouraged to do this assignment, as Part II (28%) of each test is in the same format as this optional assignment. The assignment is to complete Part I of the Exercises (Complete the Dialogues) of each lesson in the Vocabulary and Sentence Patterns textbook (referred to as Brown textbook in homework schedule). For example, for Lesson 1, the dialogue to be completed is on page 8 of the textbook. Since the textbook uses only traditional characters for the dialogues, you can find the simplified character version on Canvas. This assignment can be typed or hand-‐
written. TIPS FOR SUCCESS: 1. Visit (ch-‐2-‐35, #17-‐22) regularly and listen to class materials online. 2. After each test, exam, or quiz, all students are encouraged to meet with the instructor to go over mistakes. 3. Check your emails regularly. Your instructor will communicate with you frequently.

6259 (voice), 512-‐410-‐6445 (video phone) or ). SCHOLASTIC DISHONESTY: 1. Copying another student’s work is considered an act of scholastic dishonesty. The student who does the copying will receive a “zero” for the assignment, while the other party will receive a 50% deduction of the original score. Sharing of answers of HW#2 with another student who was absent on the discussion day is also an act of copying. Any dispute will be forwarded to the Office of the Dean of Students. 2. Collaboration on any homework assignment is considered an act of scholastic dishonesty. Both or all students involved will receive a 50% deduction of the Homework score. 3. Passing information from one class to another is an act of scholastic dishonesty. It will be reported to the Office of the Dean of Students. ** Do not accept answers of homework from previous 412L students. Do not pass homework answers to future 412L students. v 4. Any forms of cheating (along with those who commit it) will be reported to the Office of the Dean of Students. Religious Holidays Policy It is the policy of the University of Texas at Austin that the student must notify each instructor at least fourteen (14) days prior to the classes scheduled on dates he or she will be absent to observe a religious holy day. For religious holidays that fall within the first two weeks of the semester, the notice should be given on the first day of the semester. vi CHI 412L WK 1 8/30 Wed 8/31 Thu WK 2 9/4 Mon 9/5 Tue 9/6 Wed 9/7 Thu Homework Schedule – Fall 2017 Prepare vocab and sentence patterns of L.1.
