Course​ ​Policy​ ​&​ ​Canvas​ ​System:

1.​ ​Information​ ​about​ ​all​ ​course​ ​assignments​ ​is​ ​posted​ ​in​ ​the​ ​Assignments’​ ​page​ ​on​ ​Canvas.​ ​After​ ​you​ ​login​ ​to​ ​Canvas, click​ ​“Courses”​ ​from​ ​the​ ​top​ ​menu​ ​and​ ​select​ ​IELE​ ​5330.​ ​After​ ​you​ ​enter​ ​the​ ​Home​ ​page​ ​of​ ​IELE​ ​5330,​ ​click “Assignments”​ ​from​ ​the​ ​menu​ ​on​ ​the​ ​left.​ ​You​ ​should​ ​see​ ​the​ ​list​ ​of​ ​all​ ​assignments​ ​and​ ​due​ ​dates.​ ​Click​ ​the​ ​assignment that​ ​you​ ​would​ ​like​ ​to​ ​view​ ​and​ ​read​ ​instruction​ ​carefully​ ​and​ ​download​ ​the​ ​document.

2.​ ​Assignments​ ​should​ ​be​ ​submitted​ ​to​ ​the​ ​instructor​ ​through​ ​the​ ​Assignments’​ ​page​ ​on​ ​Canvas.​ ​No​ ​assignments​ ​are accepted​ ​via​ ​email.​ ​To​ ​submit​ ​your​ ​assignment,​ ​click​ ​“Submit​ ​Assignment”​ ​in​ ​the​ ​Assignment’s​ ​page.​ ​Click​ ​“Browse”​ ​to select​ ​your​ ​file​ ​and​ ​then​ ​click​ ​“Submit​ ​Assignment”​ ​located​ ​under​ ​Comments​ ​text​ ​box.​ ​After​ ​you​ ​submit​ ​assignments through​ ​the​ ​Assignments’​ ​page,​ ​you​ ​should​ ​see​ ​the​ ​message,​ ​“Submission​ ​✔Turned​ ​In!”​ ​on​ ​the​ ​upper​ ​right​ ​corner​ ​of​ ​the screen​ ​(See​ ​screen​ ​shots​ ​below).

3.​ ​Regardless​ ​of​ ​the​ ​reason,​ ​only​ ​one​ ​late​ ​assignment​ ​is​ ​accepted​ ​with​ ​no​ ​deduction​ ​IF​ ​you​ ​email​ ​the​ ​instructor​ ​before 10:00​ ​p.m.​ ​on​ ​the​ ​scheduled​ ​due​ ​date.​ ​If​ ​you​ ​have​ ​an​ ​Internet​ ​problem​ ​and​ ​are​ ​unable​ ​to​ ​use​ ​email​ ​call​ ​the​ ​instructor’s office​ ​and​ ​leave​ ​a​ ​message​ ​on​ ​her​ ​answering​ ​machine.​ ​Additional​ ​late​ ​assignments​ ​are​ ​accepted​ ​with​ ​20%​ ​deduction.​ ​Your late​ ​assignments​ ​must​ ​be​ ​submitted​ ​within​ ​a​ ​week​ ​of​ ​the​ ​original​ ​due​ ​date,​ ​or​ ​you​ ​will​ ​receive​ ​a​ ​zero​ ​for​ ​the​ ​missing​ ​work.

4.​ ​It​ ​is​ ​your​ ​responsibility​ ​to​ ​make​ ​sure​ ​that​ ​your​ ​document​ ​is​ ​uploaded​ ​to​ ​Canvas​ ​successfully.​ ​Be​ ​sure​ ​to​ ​check​ ​the submission​ ​status​ ​after​ ​uploading​ ​your​ ​file.​ ​Technical​ ​problems​ ​on​ ​your​ ​side​ ​are​ ​NOT​ ​a​ ​valid​ ​excuse​ ​for​ ​late​ ​submission​ ​or resubmission​ ​after​ ​the​ ​due​ ​date.​ ​It​ ​is​ ​strongly​ ​encouraged​ ​that​ ​you​ ​should​ ​try​ ​to​ ​submit​ ​your​ ​assignments​ ​at​ ​least​ ​a​ ​day before​ ​the​ ​assigned​ ​due​ ​date.​ ​In​ ​doing​ ​so,​ ​if​ ​you​ ​encounter​ ​a​ ​technical​ ​problem,​ ​you​ ​can​ ​get​ ​help​ ​before​ ​passing​ ​the​ ​due date.

  1. Your graded papers can be downloaded from the Assignment’s page. On the Assignments’ page, click a link to the graded paper under “See attached files.” To view your scores for all graded assignments, click “Grades” from the top menu.

6.​ ​Except​ ​for​ ​group​ ​activities,​ ​you​ ​are​ ​NOT​ ​allowed​ ​to​ ​discuss​ ​questions​ ​with​ ​other​ ​students.​ ​If​ ​you​ ​have​ ​questions regarding​ ​the​ ​content​ ​you​ ​should​ ​ask​ ​the​ ​instructor.

7.​ ​You​ ​can​ ​submit​ ​your​ ​assignments​ ​early.​ ​However,​ ​please​ ​note​ ​that​ ​the​ ​instructor​ ​grades​ ​only​ ​one​ ​session​ ​assignment​ ​at​ ​a time.​ ​After​ ​grading​ ​all​ ​students’​ ​papers​ ​for​ ​one​ ​particular​ ​session​ ​(all​ ​papers​ ​submitted​ ​on​ ​time),​ ​the​ ​instructor​ ​will​ ​start grading​ ​next​ ​session.​ ​This​ ​helps​ ​the​ ​instructor​ ​assess​ ​the​ ​validity​ ​of​ ​the​ ​questions.​ ​For​ ​example,​ ​if​ ​the​ ​majority​ ​of​ ​students seem​ ​to​ ​be​ ​confused​ ​about​ ​the​ ​same​ ​question,​ ​the​ ​instructor​ ​may​ ​drop​ ​it.

8.​ ​Use​ ​Inbox​ ​(email)​ ​on​ ​Canvas​ ​to​ ​communicate​ ​with​ ​the​ ​instructor​ ​regarding​ ​the​ ​course.​ ​To​ ​send​ ​an​ ​email,​ ​click​ ​Inbox from​ ​the​ ​menu​ ​on​ ​left​ ​of​ ​the​ ​screen,​ ​and​ ​select​ ​a​ ​course​ ​&​ ​a​ ​recipient​ ​from​ ​the​ ​dropdown​ ​menu,​ ​enter​ ​your​ ​message,​ ​and then​ ​click​ ​Send.​ ​When​ ​you​ ​receive​ ​a​ ​new​ ​message,​ ​you​ ​should​ ​see​ ​a​ ​number​ ​on​ ​the​ ​icon.

9.​ ​Follow​ ​commonly​ ​used​ ​Netiquette​ ​(Net​ ​Etiqutte)​ ​rules​ ​to​ ​build​ ​a​ ​respectful​ ​online​ ​community. (1)​ ​Include​ ​a​ ​subject​ ​line​ ​in​ ​your​ ​email​ ​(ex.​ ​Subject:​ ​Question​ ​about​ ​final​ ​project).

(2)​ ​Respond​ ​to​ ​other​ ​students’​ ​comments​ ​respectfully.​ ​Making​ ​suggestions​ ​to​ ​your​ ​classmates​ ​is​ ​encouraged,​ ​but try​ ​to​ ​avoid​ ​negative​ ​or​ ​harsh​ ​comments.

(3)​ ​Avoid​ ​using​ ​all​ ​caps,​ ​such​ ​as​ ​“I​ ​DON’T​ ​THINK​ ​SO.”​ ​They​ ​may​ ​be​ ​interpreted​ ​negatively​ ​(You​ ​are​ ​shouting​ ​to people).

(4)​ ​Avoid​ ​using​ ​abbreviation​ ​of​ ​words​ ​(BTW),​ ​shorthand​ ​text​ ​messages​ ​(*$),​ ​and​ ​excessive​ ​punctuation​ ​or question​ ​mark​ ​(!!!!!!!!!!!,​ ​????????).

(5)​ ​Appropriate​ ​use​ ​of​ ​emoticons,​ ​such​ ​as​ ​☺​ ​and​ ​\(^o^)/​ ​is​ ​fine,​ ​as​ ​long​ ​as​ ​they​ ​don’t​ ​hurt​ ​other​ ​people’s​ ​feeling. Research​ ​shows​ ​emoticons​ ​can​ ​increase​ ​emotional​ ​closeness​ ​in​ ​online​ ​learning.

(6)​ ​Respect​ ​other​ ​people’s​ ​privacy.​ ​Do​ ​not​ ​spread​ ​or​ ​share​ ​other​ ​students’​ ​personal​ ​information,​ ​such​ ​as​ ​phone numbers​ ​and​ ​home​ ​addresses​ ​over​ ​the​ ​Internet,​ ​unless​ ​you​ ​obtain​ ​their​ ​permission.

10.​ ​You​ ​are​ ​REQUIRED​ ​to​ ​check​ ​Inbox​ ​email​ ​at​ ​least​ ​three​ ​days​ ​a​ ​week.​ ​The​ ​instructor​ ​sends​ ​you​ ​important​ ​information via​ ​Inbox​ ​on​ ​Canvas.​ ​Please​ ​remember​ ​that​ ​neglecting​ ​to​ ​check​ ​email​ ​may​ ​affect​ ​your​ ​course​ ​grades.

11.​ ​You​ ​will​ ​be​ ​awarded​ ​extra​ ​credit​ ​for​ ​an​ ​exceptional​ ​quality​ ​of​ ​work​ ​(up​ ​to​ ​five​ ​points).​ ​Those​ ​who​ ​have​ ​received​ ​extra credit​ ​will​ ​find​ ​the​ ​cat​ ​stamp​ ​below​ ​in​ ​their​ ​assignments​ ​(posted​ ​in​ ​discussion​ ​boards​ ​or​ ​graded​ ​papers).

1.​ ​​​Discussion​ ​Groups,​ ​Digital​ ​Picture,​ ​and​ ​Personal​ ​Information

Small​ ​groups​ ​will​ ​be​ ​organized​ ​for​ ​more​ ​efficient​ ​and​ ​effective​ ​online​ ​conversations​ ​about​ ​course topics​ ​and​ ​to​ ​maximize​ ​the​ ​possibility​ ​for​ ​interaction​ ​among​ ​students​ ​during​ ​discussions.​ ​In​ ​order​ ​to make​ ​this​ ​online​ ​learning​ ​environment​ ​a​ ​little​ ​more​ ​collegial,​ ​and​ ​to​ ​help​ ​you​ ​put​ ​faces​ ​to​ ​names,​ ​the first​ ​assignment​ ​is​ ​to​ ​post​ ​a​ ​digital​ ​picture​ ​of​ ​yourself,​ ​along​ ​with​ ​some​ ​personal​ ​details,​ ​to​ ​the “Classmate​ ​Information”​ ​topic​ ​under​ ​Canvas​ ​Discussions.​ ​Also,​ ​please​ ​add​ ​your​ ​picture​ ​to​ ​your Profile​ ​in​ ​Canvas​ ​(see​ ​Section​ ​D1​ ​of​ ​this​ ​syllabus​ ​for​ ​more​ ​details).

2.​ ​​​Chapter​ ​Reflections
Topics​ ​are​ ​provided​ ​on​ ​Canvas​ ​Assignment​ ​pages​ ​and​ ​contain​ ​questions​ ​and​ ​activities​ ​based​ ​on​ ​your reading​ ​of​ ​the​ ​two​ ​required​ ​textbooks.​ ​You​ ​will​ ​respond​ ​in​ ​the​ ​discussion​ ​board.

3.​ ​Strategy​ ​Journal
