560:105 ITALIAN FOR READING KNOWLEDGE
105 is designed to develop the necessary skills needed to read and
comprehend Italian prose. Students will develop comprehension of texts
from a broader variety of disciplines including the humanities and the social
sciences.
At the end of the course students will be able to understand and interpret
texts that present complex elements of Italian syntax, grammar, and
vocabulary and will master basic translation skills. They will be able to
identify the distinctive features of the language as well as the ways in which
it shapes culturally specific meaning.
Texts:
 Mastering Italian Grammar (Barron's Foreign Language Guides);
Barron's
Educational Series; Bilingual edition: 2007
 Berlitz Italian Vocabulary Handbook, Berlitz Publishing, 2005
 Course packet


Italian-English/ English-Italian Dictionary

Attendance, Participation, and Disabilities Policies:
Students are expected to attend all classes; if you expect to miss one or two
classes, please use the University absence reporting website
https://sims.rutgers.edu/ssra/ to indicate the date and reason for your
absence. An email is automatically sent to me.
All students must attend regularly. No more than three absences are allowed; use
them wisely, for health and other serious issues. Having more than three absences,
arriving to class late, and engaging in behavior that is distracting to the rest of the
class are grounds for a significantly lower mark in class participation.
In case students with disabilities should require any special type of
assistance and would like to request accommodations, they must follow the
procedures outlined at: http://disabilityservices.rutgers.edu/request.html
Academic Integrity and Plagiarism
In order to avoid plagiarism (the representation of the words or ideas of others as
one’s own), every quotation must be indentified by quotation marks or appropriate
indentation and must be properly cited in the text or in a footnote. Always
acknowledge your sources clearly and completely when you paraphrase or
summarize material from another source (in print, electronic, or other medium) on
whole or in part. If you are in doubt, please consult the policy on plagiarism and
academic integrity at Rutgers and do not hesitate to ask your instructor for
clarifications.
http://academicintegrity.rutgers.edu/integrity.shtml
The use of on-line translators for homework and other assignments is
forbidden. In order to succeed it is necessary to have the proper practice
for tests and representing a translation that was not done by you is a breach
of academic integrity.
