Term Work
The term work will constitute 75% of the final grade. A minimum of 50% of graded term work must be completed in class. Students will read 8-10 selections and write a minimum of 2500 words during the term, including at least two 500-word analytical essays written in class; a 1000-word analytical essay; and a research assignment. Students will develop arguments based upon a critical appreciation of the themes and literary techniques presented in the readings. They will also support their views with textual references. No more than 10% of the final grade will be allotted to quizzes and/or presentations.

Final Examination
The final exam will constitute 25% of the course grade. It will be a common exam in the form of a textual analysis. Successful completion of term work is a prerequisite for writing the final exam. Your professor will allow you to write the exam for practice purposes. Students must also pass the final exam to pass the course.

Upon successful completion of EAC150, students are now eligible to take the required literature component of their diploma program.

Promotion Policy Successful completion of term work is a prerequisite for writing the final exam. Your professor will allow you to write the exam for practice purposes. You must complete all course work as specified and achieve a grade of 50% or more both on the term work and on the final exam. Your overall grade in the subject should be 50% or higher in order for you to pass the course.

Evaluation of Work
Evaluation is based on correct language usage, organization and mastery of the subject at a post secondary level. Students are expected to learn professional standards of performance in the subject areas, and tests and assignments will be graded on that basis. In recognition of the significance of exceptional communication skills in the work place, marks are deducted for language errors on all tests and exams. A student can be failed on the basis of language errors alone.

Missed Tests / Presentations / In-Class Assignments
Students who miss scheduled tests, presentations or in-class assignments will receive a grade of zero. If there are valid reasons for missing the test, presentation or in-class assignment, the student MUST:
a) Contact the professor or student advisor either by phone or by email prior to the start time of the test, presentation or in-class assignment and
b) Next class, present the professor with a signed, word-processed memo indicating why the test, presentation or in-class assignment was missed, with documentation where appropriate.
At the professor’s discretion, a make-up test/in-class assignment or new date for the presentation may be granted or the value of the test may be added to a subsequent test or final exam. In courses where the grading scheme does not include the lowest test mark, this missed test policy does not apply.

Late Assignments
Late assignments will result in a penalty of 5% per day to a maximum of five consecutive days. Assignments will not be accepted after five consecutive days or as otherwise indicated by your professor. If there are valid reasons for the late assignment the student MUST:
a) contact the professor, either by phone or email, no later than the date the assignment is due to indicate the assignment will be late, and
b) present the professor with a signed, word-processed memo indicating why the assignment was late, with documentation where appropriate. If the reasons are deemed to be valid, there will be no penalty.

Attendance and Participation
Consistent attendance is important for success in this subject. If you are absent from class, please notify me by phone or e-mail. You are still responsible for the material and assignments missed and may be required to provide documentation. For extensions or special considerations, make the request to me well in advance of any due dates.

Considerate classroom conduct, adequate class preparation, and constructive participation will enhance your academic experience and that of your colleagues. In particular, you are asked to be prompt, courteous, responsible and collaborative.
