Attendance Policy:

Attendance will be taken every class period and this policy will be enforced. HCCS policy states that a student who is absent more than 12.5% (6 hours) of class may be administratively dropped from the course. Coming in late or leaving early will constitute a tardy. All tardies will be counted toward your allotted absences. For example, if you are ten minutes late, ten minutes will be deducted from your 6 hours of possible absences. Your participation is required. Students who intend to withdraw from the course must do so by the official last day to drop. Students who prefer to receive an F rather than a W will need to attend classes throughout the semester and take the final exam or discuss the situation with the instructor before they stop attending the class.


Withdrawal Policy:

The State of Texas has begun to impose penalties on students who drop courses excessively. For example, if you repeat the same course more than twice, you have to pay extra tuition. Beginning in the Fall of 2007, the Texas Legislature passed a law limiting first time entering students to no more than six total course withdrawals throughout their academic career in obtaining a certificate or baccalaureate degree. There may be future penalties imposed.

**If you do not withdraw before the deadline, you will receive the grade that you are making as the final grade. This grade will probably be an “F.”

**You should visit with your instructor, an HCC counselor, or HCC Online Student Services to learn what, if any, HCC interventions might be offered to assist you to stay in class and improve your performance. Such interventions could include tutoring, child care, financial aid, and job placement.



Student Course Reinstatement Policy

Students have a responsibility to arrange payment for their classes when they register, either

through cash, credit card, financial aid, or the installment plan. Students who are dropped from

their courses for non-payment of tuition and fees who request reinstatement after the official date

of record can be reinstated by making payment in full and paying an additional $75.00 per course

reinstatement fee. The academic dean may waive the reinstatement fee upon determining that the

student was dropped because of a college error.
Late Paper Policy:

All assignments are required to be turned in at the beginning of the class when they are due. Your due date will be posted on your assignment sheet for all major essays and the research paper, as well as on this syllabus. Occasionally, the due date on the syllabus may be adjusted, so please refer to the essay assignment sheet. Late papers will be docked a letter grade (10 points) per week. No late papers will be accepted more than one week late. Please arrange a conference with me to discuss the reasons for any late papers. Please keep a copy of your papers for your own file; should a paper be lost, it is your responsibility to give me another copy.

The English Department regards a two week turnaround for the return of major essays an appropriate timeframe.
Make-up Policy:

Students will be allowed to take make-up exams if they have medical or unforeseen emergencies. Students will be responsible for contacting the instructor and providing documentation of the emergency situation. Students are strongly encouraged to avoid taking this measure and the make-up exam will be an entirely different format from the original exam administered in class on the scheduled date.


Paper Format:

· Blue or black ink only (in class handwritten assignments)--*Please note-In Lab Classes--all work will be typed

· White notebook paper only - no frayed edges

· Handwritten work should be written on one side only

· Length -- two to three full pages (approx. 300-500 words) on in class handwritten essays & out of class typed Journal/Reading Notebook Entries --out of class typed “short” essays (750-1,000 words)

· Do not use white out/liquid paper on in class essays

· Hand in rough drafts with final drafts -- out of class typed papers

· Typed papers must adhere to MLA style format

· All major assignments need to be printed in “hard copy” format {paper} and turned in with the material saved on a properly labeled flash drive or other file saving device {Student Name, Instructor Name, English 1302}
Other Course Policies:

*Please turn off cell phones and beepers prior to entering the classroom (see above).

*Please be prepared to take notes during class -- no tape recording devices allowed (see above).

*Please do not bring children, boy/girl friends, family members, etc. to class with you -- only students registered in the class may attend.

*Please do not chat with class colleagues during discussion.

*Please do not pack up books and belongings prior to being dismissed -- I will announce when class has been completed and it is time for you to leave.

*If you should miss class for any reason, it is your responsibility to make up the work you missed and to contact me for any special instructions on work you missed. It is also strongly recommended that you obtain the phone number of a classmate to aid you in this situation.

*Attendance will be checked daily. Please note: tardies will have an effect on the grade you receive for the course (i.e. points for the work you miss such as quizzes, in class writing assignments, etc. will be deducted from your final grade average). Please make an effort to be on time to avoid losing points and disrupting the class.


New Policy on Repeating Courses:

"NOTICE:  Students who repeat a course three or more times will be charged an additional fee at HCC and other Texas public colleges and universities.  Please ask your instructor/counselor about opportunities for tutoring/other assistance prior to considering course withdrawal, or if you are not receiving passing grades."


Special Conditions:

If you have any special conditions, extenuating circumstances, or needs that may affect your progress in this course, please notify me. I would be happy to discuss them with you in person. Also inform me of any special accommodations that you have documented through the Disability Support Services Counselors so that we may better meet your needs (Student Handbook 10). Any student with a documented disability (e.g. physical, learning, psychiatric, vision, hearing, etc.) who needs to arrange reasonable accommodations must contact the Disability Services Office at the respective college at the beginning of each semester. Faculty are authorized to provide only the accommodations requested by the Disability Support Services Office.


The Journal/Reading Notebook:

You will be responsible for keeping a folder (Journal/Reading Notebook) in which you will organize all writing assignments (journals, group work summaries, in class activity summaries, and any other instructor assigned work). This Notebook will be comprised of reading response journals (50%), and entries detailing your learning progress in this course (50%). {**Students who choose to participate in the Service Learning Project (SLP) may substitute up to 10 journal entries (50%) in lieu of standard journal entry topics. The SLP journal entry topic suggestions will be detailed in the Service Learning Project Hand-out posted on my HCC Learning Web page}. The in class entries will be typed at the beginning of class and turned in upon completion. The completed folder will be turned in per the syllabus schedule. Periodic checks will be made to monitor the progress of each student. All students are responsible for bringing their work to each class and keeping the Journal/Reading Notebook current. Students must maintain a Table of Contents for their folders. All work must be typed utilizing MLA style and must be saved on a properly labeled flash drive or other file saving device. (Lab Students: All students must bring a flash drive or other file saving device to each class so their work can be saved on a daily basis). Students are also strongly encouraged to send documents to their email as a back-up. The Journal/Reading Notebook will also provide the topic for the Final Exam. Each entry in the Reading Notebook must be completed to receive a passing grade on this assignment. All students are responsible for making up missed work due to unforeseen absences.

Student Organizations

One organization of interest to students taking English classes is Southwest Writers, a group of students who write and read their works (in a public forum as well as on the Internet) and receive peer support and constructive criticism. Students in this group create a supportive network to create poetry, fiction, drama, and non-fiction prose. Contact advisor Ms. Helen Jackson at: helen.jackson@hccs.edu. Another organization of interest for English students is the Gender Studies Group. The Gender Studies Club will meet each month and online to discuss the roles of women and men in society and to investigate how sexual differences and cultural constructions of gender may affect identity. We promote awareness of gender issues on campus, encourage research and discussion of gender issues, host prominent speakers in the field, and serve the community. Contact Ms. Marie Dybala at marie.dybala@hccs.edu and/or Ms. Amy Tan at: amy.tan@hccs.edu if you are interested in joining this HCC student organization. In addition, Phi Theta Kappa is the honor society of two-year colleges. Students must earn a 3.5 grade point average and accumulate 9 credit hours to join this group. HCCS has a very active chapter: Omega Sigma. Contact: Ms. Eunice Kallarackal at: eunice.kallarackal@hccs.edu for more information.

Mission Statement of the English Department

The purpose of the English Department is to provide courses that transfer to four-year colleges; introduce students to literature from diverse traditions; prepare students to write clear, communicative, well-organized, and detailed prose; and develop students’ reading, writing, and analytical skills.


SCHOLASTIC DISHONESTY:

According to the 2006-2009 Student Handbook for the Houston Community College System :

“Students are responsible for conducting themselves with honor and integrity in fulfilling course requirements. Penalties and/or disciplinary proceedings may be initiated by College System officials against a student accused of scholastic dishonesty. ‘Scholastic dishonesty’ includes, but is not limited to, cheating on a test, plagiarism, and collusion. ‘Cheating’ on a test includes:

-- Copying from another student’s test paper;

--Using materials during a test that are not authorized by the person giving the test;

--Collaborating with another student during a test without authority;

--Knowingly using, buying, selling, stealing, transporting, or soliciting in whole or part the contents of an unadministered test;

--Bribing another person to obtain a test that is to be administered.

‘Plagiarism’ means the appropriation of another’s work and the unacknowledged incorporation of that work in one’s own written work offered for credit.

‘Collusion’ means the unauthorized collaboration with another person in preparing written work offered for credit” (34-35).



Please note the possible consequences of such dishonesty, as stated in the 2006-2009 Student Handbook: Possible punishments for academic dishonesty may include a grade of “0” or “F” for the particular assignment, failure in the course, and/or recommendation for probation or dismissal from the College System (35).
Plagiarism Policy

Plagiarized papers or projects will receive a grade of “0” (zero) -- no exceptions. Cheating or collusion will also result in a grade of “0” (zero) on that paper or project. Plagiarism or collusion on a second major assignment will result in a zero in the course. Students need to be aware that the instructor will be utilizing plagiarism software and internet sources to check student work for potential plagiarism. This will be discussed in more detail during class lecture.

ENGLISH 13O2 COURSE DESCRIPTION

English 1302 is a more extensive study of the skills introduced in English 1301 with an emphasis on critical thinking, research and documentation techniques, and literary and rhetorical analysis. English 1302 is a core curriculum course.


HCCS CORE CURRICULUM INTELLECTUAL COMPETENCIES AND EXEMPLARY EDUCATIONAL OBJECTIVES -- ENGLISH 1301 AND 1302

______________________________________________________________________________
I. BASIC INTELLECTUAL COMPETENCIES IN HCCS CORE
· READING: Reading material at the college level means having the ability to analyze and interpret a variety of materials -- books, articles, and documents.

· WRITING: Writing at the college level means having the ability to produce clear, correct, and coherent prose adapted to purpose, occasion, and audience. In addition to knowing correct grammar, spelling, and punctuation, students should also become familiar with the writing process, including how to discover a topic, how to develop and organize it, and how to phrase it effectively for their audience. These abilities are acquired through practice and reflection.

· SPEAKING: Effective speaking is the ability to communicate orally in clear, coherent, and persuasive language appropriate to purpose, occasion, and audience.

· LISTENING: Listening at the college level means the ability to analyze and interpret various forms of spoken communication.

· CRITICAL THINKING: Critical thinking embraces methods of applying both qualitative and quantitative skills analytically and creatively to subject matter in order to evaluate arguments and to construct alternative strategies. Problem solving is one of the applications of critical thinking used to address an identified task.

· COMPUTER LITERACY: Computer literacy at the college level means having the ability to use computer-based technology in communicating, solving problems, and acquiring information. Core-educated students should have an understanding of the limits, problems, and possibilities associated with the use of technology and should have the tools necessary to evaluate and learn new technologies as they become available.
II. EXEMPLARY EDUCATIONAL OBJECTIVES: ENGLISH 1302

By the time they have completed English 1302, students will

• demonstrate the ability to use consistently and effectively the writing process for both in-class and out-of-class essays (thus reinforcing English 1301 instruction);

• understand and apply the basic principles of critical thinking—evaluation, analysis, and synthesis— as they write essays that persuade or argue;

• be able to analyze, in writing, readings by professional and student writers (for such elements as purpose, audience tone, style, writing strategy, and for much deeper meanings);

• be able to develop a critical and creative essay in response to an issue related to reading(s) or other class projects;

• demonstrate the ability to resist simplistic formulations, whether in their own or others’ texts;

• understand the characteristics of imaginative texts and write effective analyses of various genres;

be able to acknowledge, as appropriate, their own history, interests, and biases as they discuss a topic, thus placing themselves credibly in the discussion;

• develop the ability to research and write a documented paper;

• make effective stylistic choices (diction, tone, sentence structure) in all writing assignments, depending upon the audience and purpose of a piece of writing;

• apply suggestions, as appropriate, from evaluated compositions to other writing tasks; and

• fulfill the writing requirements of the course, writing at least 6000 words during the semester.
