Click the links below for detailed instructions and criteria for all assignments:
NQA VOUCHERS: Each student will receive ONE (1) “No Questions Asked” voucher at the beginning of the term. This voucher entitles you to an extension on an assignment until the next scheduled class. You MUST submit the voucher on the day that the assignment is due. If you do not use your voucher, you may turn it in at the end of the course for a 2% bonus grade. You MUST submit the actual voucher in order to receive this bonus.
Assignments: All Assignments are Due at the beginning of class.
NO LATE ASSIGNMENTS will be accepted except in extenuating circumstances. You must consult with the instructor in advance to obtain an extension. Where unexpected circumstances arise, the student must contact the instructor as soon as possible and should be prepared to provide supporting documentation (such as a doctor’s note). COMPUTER PROBLEMS DO NOT CONSTITUTE AN ACCEPTABLE EXCUSE.
Keep copies of all materials handed in for grade.
Academic Honesty: Students are required to adhere to the highest standards of academic honesty. Definitions of PLAGIARISM and the related penalties for this offence are available in the English Program Handbook and in the current edition of the Undergraduate Calendar. Be sure to familiarize yourself with these regulations and definitions as ignorance of the rules is no excuse and anyone caught committing an academic offence will face the severest penalties.
Accessibility: This classroom welcomes all kinds of learners. If you require academic accommodations, please contact the Instructor.
OPTIONAL HOMEWORK ASSIGNMENTS:
EXCEPT for the in-class exercises, these assignments are not mandatory, but they will help you work with the texts and may give you something to use in your reading journals. I am happy to provide feedback on any homework handed in. No extra credit is attached to this exercise.
