Didactics, Attendance, Course Books and Assessment

Didactics

Students will be expected to download the lessons posted on the Moodle website (Blended Learning) and class discussions will begin with additional resources such as photographs or short videos, interviews or excerpts taken from articles published during the week. These additional resources will allow students to reactivate their knowledge of grammar and sentence construction thus facilitating language learning and will encourage students to make discoveries on their own about grammar use and sentence construction.

Students will be asked to keep a notebook in which they can begin to write short texts which may be opinions, reactions to resources presented in class or personal projects or plans. These short exercises will used as preparation for longer writing tasks such as a formal 'Personal statement' or an Academic project proposal.

When considering short reading or writing texts, students will consider aspects of texts such as audience and purpose; formal and informal language; 'old-to-new' information flow; and organizational patterns for longer texts such as 'general to specific' or 'specific to general'.

Students will complete short exercises as preparation for translation tasks.
