Metody hodnocení
1) Active participation at 70% of the lessons during the semester.

2) Preparation for classes and class work with approximately 5 smaller assignments (35 points – deadlines to be announced throughout the term); for example:

A) weekly written leads on current issues (30-50 words) – to be done at home and presented orally in each class
B) written introduction of a topic idea for a short presentation – 50-100 words
C) 5-6 minute-long practice presentation on an academic topic (delivered in class) [12 points]
D) written abstract (to accompany the presentation; 150-250 words) [8 points]
E) written summary of a class presentation or video (100-200 words) [5 points]
F) written argumentative text (150-250 words) [10 points]

3) Summary of a short lecture (listening): to take place in the last week of the teaching part of the semester, i.e. during CREDIT WEEK [15 points]

4) Position paper: this involves the writing of a 500-700 word long summary and critique of a text based on your reading of a 5-15 page long chapter from an English book/academic article of your choice (this source text must be submitted by March 31; the resulting written text is to be submitted during the EXAM PERIOD in advance of your final presentation described in point 5; 25 points)

5) Short academic presentation (5-6 minutes long) of the position paper, followed by a discussion (to take place in the EXAM PERIOD after the submission of the position paper; 25 points)

That makes a total of 100 points for the 4-credit option of the course. The pass mark is 60 out of 100 points.
For the 2-credit option, points 4 and 5 are left out, for a total of 50 points. The pass mark is 30 out of 50 points.
