Required Writing and Reading:

Reading materials for this course are of four types:
1. Dialoge, which contextualize target grammar and vocabulary in typical cultural settings.
Students will also read these aloud to practice pronunciation, sentence stress, and
sentence melody.
2. Geschichten and Nacherzählung, or situational stories and dialogs for intensive reading.
These stories are written at a level of difficulty slightly above the abilities of students to
create with the language, but class activities should lead the students to the point where
they can retell them, thus encouraging them to experiment with creating meaning in
3. Lesestücke, selections for extensive reading to develop general comprehension skills.
4. Authentic texts and graphic items from German-speaking countries. Students will work
with these items interactively (e.g., filling out a form, choosing from a schedule, ordering
merchandise, etc.)
Student Conduct:
Academic Integrity and Plagiarism
Academic Integrity
Academic integrity is a fundamental principle of collegial life at Heartland Community College
and is essential to the credibility of the College’s educational programs. Moreover, because
grading may be competitive, students who misrepresent their academic work violate the right of
their fellow students. The College, therefore, views any act of academic dishonest as a serious
offense requiring disciplinary measures, including course failure, suspension, and even expulsion
from the College. In addition, an act of academic dishonesty may have unforeseen effects far
beyond any officially imposed penalties.
Violations of academic integrity include, but are not limited to cheating, aiding or
suborning cheating or other acts of academic dishonesty, plagiarism, misrepresentation of data,
falsification of academic records or documents and unauthorized access to computerized
academic or administrative records or systems. Definitions of these violations may be found in
the college catalog.
Plagiarism is the presenting of others’ ideas as if they were your own. When you write a paper,
create a project, do a presentation or create anything original, it is assumed that all the work,
except for that which is attributed to another author or creator, is your own. Plagiarism is
considered a serious academic offense and may take the following forms:
Copying word-for-word from another source and not giving that source credit.
Paraphrasing the work of another and not giving that source credit.
Adopting a particularly apt phrase as your own.
Using an image or a copy of an image without crediting its source.
Paraphrasing someone else’s line of thinking in the development of a topic as if it
were your own.
Receiving excessive help from a friend or elsewhere, or using another project as
if it were your own.
Note that word-for-word copying is not the only form of plagiarism.
The penalties for plagiarism may be severe, ranging from failure on the particular piece
of work, failure in the course or expulsion from school in extreme cases.
