Tutorial attendance is crucial to our learning together. If you have a problem in coming to tutorial, please discuss this with your tutor, and if you have medical or personal problems, let him or her know in advance. Arrive on time, and participate as actively as you can. Tutorial participation will be taken into account in your overall assessment.
Unless you receive instructions fron your tutor otherwise, please submit your assignment in both hard and soft copy. Place the hard copy in your tutor's mailbox outside the English Dept Office (6th floor, AS5). At the same time, upload a soft copy to your tutorial group's workbin via IVLE. Please do not email the assignment as an attachment to your tutor directly: this will clog up your tutor's mailbox, and it's possible the email will bounce back.
Missed deadlines may result in deduction of grade points on assignments. If you are having personal or health problems, talk to your tutor before the assignment is due, not on or after the due day itself.
SSA1206 is graded entirely via continuous assessment. It is thus vital that the work you produce is your own and, if you make use of sources from elsewhere, they are properly documented. At university level it is assumed that you know what plagiarism (the unreferenced use of others' words or ideas) is, and if you are caught committing plagiarism, ignorance is no excuse. If you are found to have plagiarised material, you will find that at the best you will receive a low mark for the module; at the worse, you risk suspension or even diamissal from NUS.
Here is an explanation of what plagiarism is and how to avoid it.
Here is the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences policy statement on plagiarism. In taking SSA1206 you are assumed to have read and understood the statement.
If at any time you are unsure regarding whether to reference a source or not, consult your tutor. In general, it is best to be overly cautious and reference too much, rather than to risk plagiarizing.
