Information about Mid-term Exam Week

Filed under: announcements — richardlstansfield @ 5:07 am

We are losing class time because of the Chuseok and Hangul Day holidays.

Because of that, there will be some changes to the lessons.

1. The remaining chapters in the text book will not be taught in order. For example, I will begin Unit 5 in the middle of the unit. This is because I want to make sure that we finish the most important parts.

I might ask you to do some exercises as homework and to check your answers by using my website.

2. Mid-term Exam week (Monday, October 12 to Friday, October 16) will be like this:

– 1st class: Unit 4 quiz and Unit 5 quiz
– 2nd class: Speaking tests (more information later)

April 3, 2015

See you next week (Week #6)

Yours truly,
Mr. Richard Stansfield

About Final Grades

Filed under: announcements,final marks — richardlstansfield @ 11:41 pm

When I am finished grading, I will put the marks on my website before they appear on Inha’s website. (example: https://richardlstansfield.wordpress.com/2014/06/17/final-marks-and-other-information-2/) This will be your chance to ask about your grade before it is final.

Find your final mark by looking below, under your class number.

The first number is your student ID number. The second number is your mark out of 80. Your mid-term exam is out of 20. Add the two numbers together to get a number out of 100.

Example:

Hyorin’s student ID# is 12345678. She had a mid-term exam score of 15/20. Under her class number, she finds:

12345678, 60.5

So her mark out of 100 is 75.5 (15/20 + 60.5/80 = 75.5/100).

What mark out of 100 gives you an A? I don’t know. I don’t determine that. So, please don’t say things like, “Give me an A,” or “I want an A.” However, if you have any questions about your mark, such as test scores, you may leave a comment. Finally, if you think that there has been a mistake, then please contact me as soon as possible because it’s easier to fix now rather than later.

Be sure to include your class number!

대학영어평가방법 : 중간고사 20점, OFF-LINE 수업 80점 ( 출석, 퀴즈, 과제, 토론, 기말고사 등 )
Track 전체에서 등급별 비율대로 자동으로 최종성적이 산출되며, 본인 분반에서 높은 점수를 받았다고 해서 반드시 그것에 상응하는 최종성적을 받을 수 있는 것이 아닙니다. 때문에 최종성적 공개 후 이의신청기간에 외국인선생님께 성적에 대해 항의하거나 성적상향요청을 하셔도 외국인선생님이 도와주지 못하는점 참고하시기 바랍니다.
중간고사, OFF-LINE 세부성적문의는 성적이의제기 기간내에 교양영어부 사무실로 오시면 확인할 수 있습니다.

How To Do Well On Your Presentations

Filed under: announcements — richardlstansfield @ 1:48 am

– do NOT be late for your presentation!

– introduce yourselves

– introduce your topic

– go over the vocabulary

– all members participate in presenting (Divide the presentation amongst all members.)

– explain any pictures (e.g. “This is a picture of Korean figure skater Kim Yu-na, taken at the 2010 Vancouver Olympics.”)

– look at your audience when you speak

– don’t speak in a monotone

– look and sound “alive,” not “dead”

– You can occasionally look quickly at small, hand-sized cards with your main points on them. Do not read from them or look at them for too long. You can
just glance at them, and then look quickly back to your audience.

– respect other groups when they do their presentations (pay attention, don’t talk, etc.)

* This is the procedure:

1. Stand at the front of the class, introduce yourselves, and introduce your topic.

2. Present the Glossary.

3. Present the text and explain the pictures.

4. Ask your classmates (the audience) if they have any questions. If they do, answer their questions.

5. Go back to your seats and sit down.

6. Mr. Stansfield will go over the Discussion Questions.

7. Everybody in the class will discuss the questions.

——————————

Note:
There are two parts to your presentation mark: the writing, and the presentation itself.
I judge the writing of your presentation by what appears on my web-site (e.g. having everything in the right order, having 5 vocabulary items, 3 discussion questions, etc.).
You do not have to have a Power Point presentation. You can use what is on my web-site. If you think it will make your presentation better, you can do it.
