Metody i kryteria oceniania: (tylko po angielsku)

Formative assessment plays a significant role in the development of writing skills therefore, each student will receive feedback on their written work at various stages of the process of writing and will be asked to act upon it. Live feedback on essay drafts will be given in class in the second half of the course.

All students are urged to keep the set deadlines for submission of assignments. Failure to meet the assigned deadlines will result in a lower grade and no feedback.

Any form of plagiarism will result in failing the course.

There are three components of the final grade:

1. Essay 1 (outline, version 1, version 2) – 35%

2. Essay 2 (outline, draft, final version) – 50%

3. Attendance and active participation in class – 15%.

Metody dydaktyczne: (tylko po angielsku)

The teaching approach focuses on the students and their active participation in class (action-oriented approach). Students often work in pairs and groups. The course is partly based on the flipped classroom method where students complete the preparation stage before classes. This method allows for more efficient interaction during classes.

All students are expected to use laptops in class and to produce written assignments. Reviewing essay drafts on smartphones will not be acceptable. Class and supplementary materials will be available on Google Classroom.
