Introduction The Assignments for the Collaborative Version of the Course

The Assignments for the Collaborative Version of the Course

Here is a summary of all of the assignments you and your partner can choose from if you have chosen the collaborative version of the C course. We have made a few adjustments in the allotment of points to take into consideration the fact that working together with another student will take more time but also give you more practice using English.

In the collaborative version of the course you will be given 10 points for the work you do together during the course. You will receive these points after submitting the study plan that you and your partner have prepared. The total number of points for the C Course is 100 which means that if you have chosen the collaborative version, you are free to eliminate one of the 10 point tasks.

The assignments are written, oral, or a combination of the two. When gathering material for your assignments from the net and books it’s especially important that you note the sources of your quotations and ideas in order to avoid plagiarism .

Follow the instructions for each task. In most cases you will need to send in individual assignments but that is not always so. Therefore it is important to read the instructions carefully, especially in the planning stage. You will find this symbol in assignments that you are to do on your own.
