Final Recovery Week 2 (of 2)

It's the last week of class!

What will happen during this Recovery Week?

This week is also a "recovery week." Your Final Project and Final LinguaFolio will be due this week. This week will be your last opportunity to submit work for late credit.


  1. No new assignments are due. This will give those of you who are behind some time to get caught up.

  2. The only assignments that are due are the Final Project and Final LinguaFolio.


  3. Coaching this week will count as make-ups (for those who are missing sessions) and bonus (for those who have attended all of their sessions). The maximum number of coaching sessions you may attend as make-up is 4 (FOUR).


Be sure to read everything in this announcement! There's also some review from Lesson 12! がんばってください!

PLAGIARISM AND YOUR FINAL PROJECT

  • Plagiarism is serious business. Taking credit for work you did not do yourself is not honest. It's ILLEGAL.
  • Using a WEB TRANSLATOR (Google Translate, etc.) is considered PLAGIARISM. Do not use these tools.
  • Copying and pasting example sentences from jisho.org or any other website is also considered PLAGIARISM.
  • If I can Google it and find where you stole it from, it's PLAGIARISM.
  • WRITE YOUR OWN SENTENCES!!

☆☆☆FOR THE PROJECT, YOU MUST DEMONSTRATE THE GRAMMAR AND VOCABULARY YOU HAVE LEARNED FROM THIS CLASS - THERE SHOULD BE ABSOLUTELY NO NEED FOR YOU TO USE A DICTIONARY OR OTHER OUTSIDE RESOURCE. ☆☆☆

  • It is VERY easy for me to tell if you have plagiarized.


I will ALSO be running all projects through the SafeAssign tool provided for NCVPS teachers to check for plagiarism.


IF YOU ARE CAUGHT PLAGIARIZING:


  • You will receive no credit for your final project.
  • I will contact your school and disciplinary consequences will be administered per your school's plagiarism policies.
  • You will have to re-do the entire project and only receive partial credit.


Please refer to the NCVPS Student Conduct and Academic Integrity Guidelines should you have any questions concerning plagiarism:

Let me repeat:

CHECK YOUR FEEDBACK!

Don't make the same mistakes over and over!


Checking your feedback (especially on the vocabulary assignments for lessons 11, 12, and 13, and your speaking assignments) can REALLY help you when it comes time to work on your final project!


Here's how to check your assignment feedback:

Remember the parts of speech when creating your sentences

It's important to remember what part of speech each word from your vocabulary list is whenever it comes time to create your sentences for your final project. You can see what part of speech each word is by looking under the column that says "part of speech" on your vocabulary list. For example:


The word あたたかい is an い-adjective:

  • あたたかい うみ に およぎました。
  • I swam in the warm ocean.


The word もの is a noun:

  • きょうしつ に もの が たくさん ありますね。。。
  • There are a lot of things in this classroom aren't there...


And the word あとで is an adverb (and it doesn't need any particles!)

  • あとで ともだち と あいます。
  • I will meet with my friend later.

☆ Let's Review Lesson 12! ☆

もの すごい!

*You may remember the word もの from such words as:


  • かいもの - shopping (literally translated, means: buy thing)
  • あみもの - knitting (literally translated, means: braid thing)
  • たべもの - food (literally translated, means: eat thing)
  • のみもの - beverage (literally translated, means: drink thing)


Remember that we never literally translate words, but it's good to know that there are compound words like these, so you can easily make connections to expand and build your vocabulary!

Not sure how to use interrogative + か or interrogative + も? Check out the examples in the comic below!
