● Attendance Policy: A student may be dropped from a 5 unit course if absent nine (9.5) consecutive
hours or a total of fifteen (15) hours during the entire semester. If students do not drop the course before the
withdrawal dateline (Tuesday, November 11 for a 16-week course) and they exceed the above mentioned
hours, they may receive an “F” or an “N/P” according to the grading option that the student chose.
Regular attendance is expected, and attendance will be taken at the beginning of each regular class meeting, and
after the break. Perfect attendance is rewarded with 30 extra points on the final exam. Each class session is
worth three (3) points, i.e. each hour of class attendance equals one (1) point, a total of six (6) per semester week.
● Absences: There are NO make-up chapter exams. For quizzes, only ONE make-up quiz will be
accepted for the 16-week term. Make-ups take place ONLY on the day of return, during the break.
● Chapter Exams: At the end of each chapter there will be a written exam (maximum of 100 points) that
will include listening comprehension, “fill-in the blank” questions, sentence formation, and paragraph writing.
There may also be tests of a multiple-choice format. Exams and presentations count for 40% of your grade.
Students may write with BLUE or BLACK INK PEN ONLY.
● Quizzes/Dictation: Almost every class meeting will include a graded assignment. Quizzes will be on
chapter content: dictation will include the previous vocabulary and the vocabulary of the chapter, vocabulary
match-up quizzes from the chapter’s vocabulary lists, paragraph writing on content previously presented,
comprehension questions from a reading, and/or worksheets that accompany a grammar point, etc. Each graded
assignment will vary from 30 – 56 points. Quizzes will be administered at 2:00 PM ONLY.
These graded quizzes/assignments count for 20% of your grade. BLUE or BLACK INK PEN ONLY.
● Presentations: There will also be presentations that will count as a grade. Maximum presentation grade is
30 points and will count as an “Exam” grade of 40%. The presentation grade will focus on pronunciation, grammar
accuracy, vocabulary variety and usage, speaking length, and overall enthusiasm. Computer translations are
obvious and will result in a low grade.
● FINAL EXAM: It is a 200 point examination that includes writing and multiple-choice questions that
will be a culmination of all the material presented in this course. It is worth 20% of your total grade. (The 30
extra points for PERFECT ATTENDANCE come in very handy here!)
● Laboratory: Each student is required to attend 13 hours in the laboratory experience. (We will be attending
LAB 14 times in the semester, 50 minutes each visit.) An attendance print-out log done by Laboratory Technicians
will indicate how many hours you have spent in the laboratory engaging in Italian reinforcement lessons. The final
number of hours will be calculated the same as participation points (10%). Laboratory times for this
semester will be announced in class. Laboratory attendance is MANDATORY. Off-task computer or internet
work done during our schedule lab hour will result in being banned from using the lab for the remaining part
of the semester during class time. The student will also lose the one point calculated for attendance at lesson
session.
● Homework: At the end of each chapter, and on the day of the chapter exam, the pages from the Oggi in
Italia (Student Activities Manual) for that chapter will be DUE for grading. (Rip out and staple the pages for the
chapter from the manual.) The highest homework score, with all blanks completed with the appropriate Italian
response, will be worth a maximum of 30 points. Homework counts for 10% of your grade. If homework pages
are handed in later than the day of the exam, each session late will downgrade the mark by one letter grade.
Incomplete homework will not be accepted. All blanks must be filled in!
● Participation: Students will be expected to respond to questions in Italian each class session and speak in
front of the class in Italian when assigned. Participation counts for 10% of your grade.
● Grading & Academic Honesty: Letter Grade or Credit / No Credit
Grades fall into the following categories:
90%+ = A
80%+ = B
70%+ = C
60%+ = D
<50% = F
** The instructor reserves the right to change the syllabus as needed. If any major changes are made, students
will be notified.
Lack of honesty in the classroom is considered a very serious offense. Any form of cheating on tests, turning in
work which is not one’s own (plagiarism), talking during tests, furnishing false information to instructors or
knowingly misrepresenting one-self to the college is grounds for disciplinary action. The consequences of
cheating are severe and may include the possibility of expulsion. (Colleges Catalog)
● Material Policy:
It is mandatory that all students enrolled in a class in the Foreign Languages Department have the required
materials for the level that they are studying by census date or they may be dropped from the course without
notification. Have your textbook (and Student Activities Manual) by Monday, September 8. BRING your
textbook to class each day. Mark it in some way to differentiate it from the Activities Manual. If you come to class
without the text, you may go to the library to copy the chapter being studied, but you will be counted as absent
during the time that you are gone. If you come to class without the text, you will be counted as absent.
● Classroom Behavior/Etiquette:
All students are expected to conduct themselves in the classroom or any structured academic activity “in a manner
consistent with the college’s function as an educational institution.” Any conduct that interferes with teaching,
research or administration is subject to possible disciplinary action. All LBCCD students are responsible for
adhering to the District’s code of student conduct, which can be found in the schedule of classes. (College Catalog)
● Cell Phones: Please remember that cell phones, two-way pagers must be turned off while in class.
NO TEXTING ALLOWED during class time.
● Eating in Class: Eating and drinking is also prohibited in all buildings except where food is sold or is part
of an approved and scheduled activity. (College Catalog)
● Basic Class Guidelines:
It is the student’s responsibility to drop the class by the appropriate date.
The instructor has the option to drop a student after five (5) absences.
Attendance in the laboratory sessions is MANDATORY.
It is the student’s responsibility to turn in assignments on the due date.
You must bring a copy of this syllabus and the text to each class meeting.
Tardiness is disruptive to the learning environment. Arrive on time.
Leaving class early should be avoided, as it is also disruptive.
If you know that you must leave class early for emergency situations,
notify the professor prior to the beginning of class or at the break.
There will be two 15-minute breaks. Quizzes given only at 2:00 PM.
Class begins promptly at 11:20 AM, and after the first 15-minute break.
Attention to cell phones or other electronic equipment is considered
disruptive to the classroom environment resulting in disciplinary action.
