Instructions for Students in Courses 1 and 2
Students will be held responsible for directions contained in this leaflet, a copy of which should be pasted inside the cover of the notebook or text book used in the course. General directions for preparing themes and the marks used in corrections may be found in Paragraph-Writing, pp. 433-439. 1.
Stationery. All themes must be written on standard ruled rhetoric paper. Blue book” paper will not answer the purpose. 2.
Assignments. No theme, however good in itself, will be considered satisfactory unless it carries out the spirit of the instructor's assignment. 3.
Means of Identifying Themes. Every theme must bear on each page the following marks of identification:
(a) Number of section in Roman numerals in upper left-hand
(b) Writer's full name preceded by file number, in upper righthand corner.
(c) Immediately below the name, the serial letter or number of the theme, followed by a dash and the number of the theme page. 4.
Title of the Theme The title of the theme should be written on the first ruled line of page 1, and should be underscored with a wave-line. Di not repeat the title on the following pages. The first paragraph should begin on the third line with an indentation of one inch. 5.
Corrections. All corrections should be made in red ink upon the original manuscript, except where an essay is rewritten at the instructor's request, in which case the original theme must be filed with the rewritten paper.
On no account should any paper be destroyed. Every file must be complete at the close of the semester, and themes that are lost must be rewritten.
Correction does not mean the striking out of a troublesome passage.
Revisions should be interlined, if possible. The margin is intended primarily for the instructor's criticism.
When misspelled words are to be corrected or a faulty passage revised, the original words or passage should be struck out by drawing a single red-ink line through each word, and the correction or revision should be interlined above.
Notes of explanation will not be accepted in place of a sug. gested correction or revision.
Students are expected to revise their themes in accordance with the instructor's criticism.
Credit in the course depends largely upon the character of the cor. rection and revision of themes. 6.
Delinquent Themes. Themes must be handed in on time and at the beginning of the recitation hour. Any student who persistently disregards this requirement will fail to receive credit for the course.
Late themes should be placed in the basket on the assistant's desk in Room 201.
Plagiarism. The student is expected to write his own themes, to use his own ideas, and to express himself in his own fashion. Borrowings of any sort must be indicated by quotation marks or references to the original source. Plagiarism, or the use of any illegitimate help in writing the theme, is regarded as cheating. Any student who is detected in plagiarizing or using such illegitimate help will be reported to the Faculty for discipline.
Filing of Themes. The student must provide himself with a file case at the begin. ning of each semester and must keep all of his themes in it. The file is not to be taken from the building, except for a short time, and then only with the permission of the instructor, or of the assistant in charge.
Notebook. Each member of the class is expected to keep a well-ordere notebook, and to make brief notes of class-room discussions and such supplementary reading as may be required.
Notebooks shouid at all times be ready for inspection. 10.
Consultation Hours. Instructors will designate a period of at least two hours a week for consultation. These periods afford students frequent opportunity to receive personal help. Failure to consult with an instructor when summoned will impair the student's credit in the
The student should bring with him to the conference his file of themes, especially those which he has written recently.
No condition in rhetoric will be removed by examination only. Students conditioned in Course 1 in the first semester will be expected to attain a satisfactory proficiency in Course 2, and to do such additional work as the instructor may assign. The condition may then be removed at the spring vacation. A student who fails to remove his condition at the spring vacation, and who incurs a condition in Course 2 also, will be reported as not passed in Course 1 or 2, as the instructor may determine. Students who fail or are conditioned in Course 2 must consult the instructor before making their elections for the ensuing year.
Students not passed in Course I will be required to repeat the course in the following semester.
Upon receiving a condition the student should consult immediately with the instructor.
