Students are expected to deliver at least one oral lecture in class in French as well as a research paper.

Professor Guieu really appreciates the use of the Internet but is not interested at all in correcting texts which were not written in French by the students themselves. Therefore their texts must be original and not a “cut-&-paste” job from French books or the Internet. Quote marks are to be used when needed.

Before their “exposés” students should distribute a short written outline to the class (with a list of vocabulary for unfamiliar words, names or places) and a Xerox of the lecture to Prof. Guieu. After the report, they must schedule as fast as possible a meeting with Prof. Guieu, in order to review their performance and get their grade. They should not wait too long after their class presentation. Exposés not delivered in class on the scheduled day will not be considered.

By Mid-November, a final paper topic must be selected, discussed with and approved by Prof. Guieu. Final papers are due at the latest on Saturday, December 18th, noon.

The Georgetown Honor system is expected and implemented in this course.

Participation and attendance are required and missing class more than 6 times will result in an F grade.
