I’ve designed this course to meet the published standards  and requirements of English 110. We’ll talk more about these program-wide goals in class.  There are also several program policies that apply to all sections of English 110. These concern:

Passing Grades

You must pass English 110 with a “C-” or higher to satisfy the university writing requirement. If you earn a lower grade, you must repeat the course for no additional degree credit.

Emergency Absences

If serious illnesses, family emergencies, or other crises occur during the term, you need to  contact the Assistant Dean of your college as soon as possible. This office can assist you in notifying your teachers about what has happened. Such validation will be necessary for you to make up missed classwork and assignments.

Writing Center

The Writing Center in 016 Memorial provides free one-on-one instruction to students who have writing assignments in this or any course. You may make an appointment online at  www.cas.udel.edu/writing-center. The telephone number is  (302) 831-1168.

Academic Integrity

Any work that you submit at any stage of the writing process—draft, thesis and outline, bibliography, etc., through final version—must be your own. In addition, any words, ideas, or data that you borrow from other people and include in your work must be properly documented. Failure to do either of these things constitutes plagiarism. The University of Delaware protects the rights of all students by insisting that individual students act with integrity.  Accordingly, the University severely penalizes plagiarism and other forms of academic dishonesty.

Disabilities and Special Needs

If you need special assistance and/or classroom accommodations because of a disability, please let me know as soon as possible.  To register and request accommodations, you will need to contact the Office of Disability Support Services. Their phone number is 302-831-4643 (TDD: 302-831-4563). More information can be found on their website: www.udel.edu/DSS.

 Course Evaluation

You are expected to complete the online student evaluation of this course. This survey will be available for you to complete during the last two weeks of the semester. Your evaluation provides valuable information to oth your teacher and the department.
