Class participation, absences, and late arrivals a. Participation (20%) In the FREN 052 classroom, active and constructive class participation is a requirement. Speaking a foreign language with proficiency is an acquired skill that entails consistent practice and self-discipline. In this class, active participation includes volunteering answers, answering questions accurately, staying on task in pair and group work, and respecting the classroom environment rules (see VI below). Study abroad programs always ask language professors to write about a student's maturity and openness to cultural differences in letters of recommendation; excellence in class performance translates into a convincing and positive letter of recommendation. b. Absences More than four (4) unexcused absences WILL lower your final grade by a third of a grade; for example, a final grade of "B+" will become a "B." Be sure to notify your instructor ahead of time in the event of an excused absence (e.g., for religious or medical reasons). N.B. If you participate in UVM-sponsored events which may prevent you from attending class from time to time, you must inform your instructor during the first two weeks of classes and submit a letter to him/her, written on UVM letterhead and signed by your supervisor or coach; the letter must include the entire semester's schedule of events and your responsibilities in it. c. Late arrivals Three (3) late arrivals equal one absence in this course. 4. Homework

You must respect your instructor’s homework guidelines. All assignments must follow the University of Vermont Code of Academic Integrity (see V below) and show an authentic commitment to language learning. Please use high-quality dictionaries, avoid automatic translators, and carefully review your work. N.B. Late homework WILL NOT BE ACCEPTED. 5. Quizzes (10%) The missed quiz policy for this section of FREN 001 is the following: 6. Oral exams (20%) Oral exams are designed to evaluate speaking and listening skills. By mid-semester, you will receive more detailed information about these exams and its assessments. Please refer to the course schedule for the oral exam dates. N.B. There will be NO make-ups for the oral exam without a written medical, religious or other official excuse. Missed oral exams will automatically receive a zero. Grading scale used in all Romance Languages and Linguistics courses at UVM: A+ = 98-100% A = 94-97% A- = 90-93% B+ = 87-89% B = 84-86% B- = 80-83% C+ = 77-79% C = 74-76% C- = 70-73% D+ = 67-69% D = 64-66% D- = 60-63% F = 0-59% V. ACADEMIC INTEGRITY AT THE UNIVERSITY OF VERMONT: It is plagiarism to present another's ideas or words as your own. In a foreign language classroom, this includes computer-based translations. If you have questions when preparing a composition or other graded assignment, please ask your instructor. Do not have someone else correct your writing for you before turning it in for a grade. Plagiarism is a serious academic offense, and can result in a failing grade or worse. The University of Vermont has a Code of Academic Integrity addressing not only plagiarism, but also fabrication, collusion, and cheating in exams (see: www.uvm.edu/~uvmppg/ppg/student/acadintegrity.pdf). Any suspected violations of the code are taken very seriously and will be forwarded to the Center for Student Ethics & Standards for further investigation. VI. THE 052 CLASSROOM ENVIRONMENT EXPECTATIONS: It is expected that students will be fully engaged in FREN 052 daily class activities. Leaving the classroom without permission or holding conversations during class discussion will not be tolerated. The use of electronic equipment (iPods, iPads, computers, or telephones) during class will significantly reduce your class participation

grade, whether your instructor speaks to you about it or not. Being courteous in class creates a good working and learning environment for everyone. STUDENT LEARNING ACCOMODATIONS: In keeping with University policy, any student with a documented disability interested in utilizing accommodations should contact ACCESS, the office of Disability Services on campus (www.uvm.edu/access). RELIGIOUS HOLIDAYS: UVM's policy: "Students have the right to practice the religion of their choice. Each semester students should submit in writing to their instructors by the end of the second full week of classes their documented religious holiday schedule for the semester. Faculty must permit students who miss work for the purpose of religious observance to make up this work. Each student is held responsible for knowledge and observance of these rules and regulations, including those concerned with academic honesty." RESOURCES FOR LANGUAGE STUDENTS: A.
