Course Requirements
The students should prepare a focused, analytic response presentation on one play from a list provided by the instructor. Choose a particular scene, speech, verbal pattern, theatrical device, dimension of staging, or minor character, and discuss precisely how it contributes to the play or performance. It should go without saying that this work must be your own best thinking, and that plagiarism will not be tolerated: if you have questions about research methods and references, please ask.
Other Requirements
Attendance and full participation are required. This means having read the plays carefully and on time, having some specific responses to them that you are willing to share, and being sufficiently alert to join in a lively conversation.
I will consider each of the requirements in determining your grade. If you cannot be in class or meet a deadline because of an emergency, please speak with me (in advance, if possible); otherwise, absences and missing a deadline will affect your grade.
There will be an in-term exam that will take place towards the 3rd quarter of the semester. No make-up exams will be given. If a student is absent on an exam day, she will receive a zero. If a medical excuse is presented, that student will take her in-term exam at the end of the semester with the whole syllabus included.
This is a two-unit course, which assumes that students will allot 6 hours/week outside the classroom for reading, writing, rehearsing, conferring, and thinking deep thoughts about drama.
In addition to welcoming students participation in class, they are encouraged to discuss their ideas and their writing with the course instructor during office hours, or at other convenient times.
Presentations will be evaluated according to:
. Pronunciation & performance (eye contact confidence - lively atmosphere)
. No recitation or reading from papers.
. Creativity is encouraged.
. The same topic may be covered by several students.

Literature Section Plagiarism Policy
Plagiarism - use of another's intellectual work without acknowledgement - is a serious offense. It is the policy of the Literature Faculty that students who plagiarize will receive an F in the subject, and that the instructor will forward the case to the Committee on Discipline. Full acknowledgement for all information obtained from sources outside the classroom must be clearly stated in all written work submitted. All ideas, arguments, and direct phrasings taken from someone else's work must be identified and properly footnoted. Quotations from other sources must be clearly marked as distinct from the student's own work.
Required ΩΩΩΩs and Materials:
A hand-out available at the in-campus copying center
Heart of Darkness Joseph Conrad
A Glossary of Literary Terms M. H. Abrams
Attendance & Participation:
Students are required to be present, prepared, participating, and on time for all classes. If a student is sick, she should contact the instructor or a classmate after the class she missed to ask about the lecture. It is the students responsibility to find out about missed work. A student is expected to be prepared for class when she returns. Missing classes repeatedly will affect your general course grade. In addition, if a student is late for class three times, she will be counted absent. Being five minutes late to class is considered tardy. Being 20 minutes late is considered an absence for that class.
Imam University's policy is that a student's attendance should not be less than 80% or else he/she would be forbidden entry in the finals.

Mobile phones must be turned off in the classroom; violating this rule will result in not taking the attendance of the student.

In addition to attendance, students will be graded on participation in class. Students should strive to be active members of the class by doing the required reading, asking questions, and listening to classmates and the instructor. Furthermore, students are required to speak only English in the classroom, unless told otherwise.
Assignments & Academic Honesty:
Students are expected to keep up with the required readings of the plays in order to be able to participate in in-class discussions. Students should also prepare for an oral presentation This presentation will help the instructor in evaluating each students development process.
Any delay in presenting required work will automatically receive a zero. Preparation for this courses presentations should be the students original work, not copied from somewhere or someone. In addition, it must be work done specifically for this course, not re-used from a previous class or project. If a student is caught cheating, she will automatically receive a zero. Cheating includes but is not limited to copying, using another students work as your own, plagiarizing, using notes or books on a test, re-using material from another class, and sharing answers or work with another student unless instructed to do so.
