The course provides tools for textual analysis, and improves written and oral communication in French. COURSE LEARNING OBJECTIVES By the end of this course, students: will be familiar with the major trends in French literature from the Middle th Ages to the 20 century through selected passages and representative texts from the three major literary genres (fiction, drama, poetry); will be able to understand the historical, social, and political contexts of literary works and apply that knowledge to a literary analysis of those works; will demonstrate analytical and critical skills when reading French literary texts; will have acquired basic concepts and techniques needed to analyze literature; will have developed the necessary skills to produce an essay and a textual analysis; will have strengthened their verbal skills in French through class discussions; will have acquired a sound basis for further studies in the field of French and Francophone literature.

Since this is reading in a foreign language, you are responsible for looking up all unfamiliar vocabulary in each text. Therefore, a good dictionary is a necessity. Assignment dossier:You must come to each class with answers to the questions assigned in your course schedule. These questions will form the basis of our class discussions. Since these dossiers will be collected on a regular basis, it is strongly suggested that you use individual sheets of paper and keep them in a folder or loose leaf binder. Class participation will be extremely important (and an integral part of your grade), so the assignment dossiers will help to organize your thoughts about the texts we will be discussing.
The first textual analysis, the midterm exams, and the oral presentationhave to be written/presented in class on the day on which they are scheduled. Any absence needs to be properly documented (See the Appendix – the policy on Academic Accommodation on Medical/NonMedical Grounds). Oral Presentations:Presentations must be given on the selected dates in order to ensure the smooth progression of the course;Avoid reading your presentation! You can use notes (i.e., cue cards, Power Point presentation containing only the main ideas and the relevant quotations), but your commentaries should be made orally. Try to encourage class participation by posing one or two interesting questions or by engaging your classmates in a brief learning activity;It is recommended that before you start your presentation you supply your classmates with an outline (the format of this outline is up to you);Rehearse and time your presentation carefully so that you don’t go over the allotted 15 minutes;If you plan on using any electronics, you should come to class a few minutes early in order to verify that the audiovisual equipment is functioning to your satisfaction;You will be evaluated based on: the content and organization of your ideas, the richness of your vocabulary, your pronunciation, your grammar, and the originality of your topic. Written Submissions:No written work will be accepted via email! You can hand in assignments in class or by using the essay box by the photocopy room in the basement of the Administrative Wing.

Policy on assistance with assignments It is assumed that students will submit assignments that are the product of their own endeavours. Students who require specific guidance concerning any part of an assignment should speak to the professor who has given that assignment. Students should not permit their written work to be read or corrected by anyone other than the instructor to whom it is to be submitted. 2. Policy on oral presentations Each oral presentation must be given on the day on which it is scheduled. Any student who fails to present on the day on which he/she is scheduled will not receive credit for that assignment. Any student who, because of illness or other serious lastminute problem, cannot avoid being absent on the day when he/she is scheduled to make an oral presentation must inform the professor as soon as the problem arises. Any student who anticipates having difficulty in presenting on the day on which he/she is scheduled should inform his/her professor well in advance, preferably as soon as the date is announced. If, in the professor’s judgment, the circumstances warrant it, the professor may, at his/her discretion, set a new date, or assign a new topic for another date.
3. Policy on attendance and participation grade Class attendance will be recorded regularly. Participation is measured by the amount of your verbal output and interaction in class. It implies that you ask and answer questions, volunteer information and observations, have your readings done for every course, and actively become involved in class discussions. Your participation will be tracked and evaluated in terms of quality and quantity. A student in a HALF COURSE may miss 3 hours of class without penalty. o Eachsubsequent absencebeyond the nonpenalizedthree will diminish the participation mark by 1% if the student does not present proper documentation on medical or nonmedical grounds. may miss 6 hours of class without penalty.A student in a FULL COURSE o Eachsubsequent absencebeyond the nonpenalizedsix will diminish the participation mark by 0.5%% if the student does not present proper documentation on medical or nonmedical grounds. Any student who, in the opinion of the instructor, is absent too frequently from class or laboratory periods in any course will be reported to the Dean (after due warning has been given). On the recommendation of the Department, and with the permission of the Dean, the student will be debarred from taking the regular examination in the course. 4. Policy on late assignments A penalty of 2% per calendar daywill apply to assignments and essays submitted after the deadline. If the student is unable to meet a deadline for reasons beyond his/her control, the student should discuss the matter with the professor in advance and be prepared to give adequate justification. Appendix to Course Outlines Prerequisite Information Students are responsible for ensuring that they have successfully completed all course prerequisites. Unless you have either the requisites for this course or written special permission from your Dean to enrol in it, you may be removed from this course and it will be deleted from your record. This decision may not be appealed. You will receive no adjustment to your fees in the event that you are dropped from a course for failing to have the necessary prerequisites. Conduct of Students in Classes, Lectures, and Seminars Membership in the community of Huron University College and the University of Western Ontario implies acceptance by every student of the principle of respect for the rights, responsibilities, dignity and wellbeing of others and a readiness to support an environment
conducive to the intellectual and personal growth of all who study, work and live within it. Upon registration, students assume the responsibilities that such registration entails. The academic and social privileges granted to each student are conditional upon the fulfillment of these responsibilities. In the classroom, students are expected to behave in a manner that supports the learning environment of others. Students can avoid any unnecessary disruption of the class by arriving in sufficient time to be seated and ready for the start of the class, by remaining silent while the professor is speaking or another student has the floor, and by taking care of personal needs prior to the start of class. If a student is late, or knows that he/she will have to leave class early, be courteous: sit in an aisle seat and enter and leave quietly. Please see theCode of Student Rights and Responsibilitiesat: It is not appropriate to use technology (such as, but not limited to, laptops, PDAs, cell phones) in the classroom for nonclassroom activities. Such activity is disruptive and is distracting to other students and to the instructor, and can inhibit learning. Students are expected to respect the classroom environment and to refrain from inappropriate use of technology and other electronic devices in class. Academic Accommodation for Medical/NonMedical Grounds For UWO Policy on Accommodation for Medical Illness and a downloadable SMC see:[downloadable Student Medical Certificate (SMC):https://studentservices.uwo.caunder the Medical Documentation heading] Students seeking academic accommodation on medical grounds for any missed tests, exams, participation components and/or assignments worth 10% or more of their final grade must apply to the Academic Counselling office of their home Faculty and provide documentation. Academic accommodation will be determined by the Dean’s Office in consultation with the instructor. Fornonmedicalgrounds or formedicalgrounds when work representsless than 10%of the overall grade for the course, the student must submit a request to the instructor in writing prior to the due date of an assignment, and immediately in the case of a test. (Or as soon as possible following a medical emergency) Students are protected under the Official Student Record Information Privacy Policy and so written requests need only include a broad and general explanation of the situation, and the approximate length of time required. At the discretion of the instructor, the granting of extensions and rescheduled tests may require the student to submit supporting either medical or nonmedical documentation to the Academic Counsellor, who will then make the determination as to whether accommodation is warranted. Statement on Academic Offences Scholastic offences are taken seriously and students are directed to read the appropriate policy, specifically, the definition of what constitutes a Scholastic Offence, at the following
Web site: Plagiarism Plagiarism is an academic offence and will be treated as such. Students who are in doubt as to the nature of this offence should consult their instructor, Department Chair or the Dean, as well as the Huron University College Statement on Plagiarism, available at the reference desk in the HUC Library and at In addition, students may seek guidance from a variety of current style manuals available at the Reference Desk in the HUC Library. Information about these resources can be found in LibGuides on the main page: Students found guilty of plagiarism will suffer consequences ranging from a grade reduction to failure in the course to expulsion from the university. In addition, a formal letter documenting the offence will be filed in the Dean’s Office, and this record of the offence will be retained in the Dean’s Office for the duration of the student’s academic career at Huron University College.All required papers may be subject to submission for textual similarity review to the commercial plagiarism detection software under license to the University for the detection of plagiarism. All papers submitted for such checking will be included as source documents in the reference database for the purpose of detecting plagiarism of papers subsequently submitted to the system. Use of the service is subject to the licensing agreement, currently between The University of Western Ontario and Computermarked multiplechoice tests and/or exams may be subject to submission for similarity review by software that will check for unusual coincidences in answer patterns that may indicate cheating. Personal Response Systems (“clickers”) may be used in some classes. If clickers are to be used in a class, it is the responsibility of the student to ensure that the device is activated and functional. Students must see their instructor if they have any concerns about whether the clicker is malfunctioning. Students must use only their own clicker. If clicker records are used to compute a portion of the course grade: the use of somebody else’s clicker in class constitutes a scholastic offence, the possession of a clicker belonging to another student will be interpreted as an attempt to commit a scholastic offence. Policy on Special Needs Students who require special accommodation for tests and/or other course components must make the appropriate arrangements with the Student Development Centre (SDC). Further details concerning policies and procedures may be found at:
Attendance Regulations for Examinations A student is entitled to be examined in courses in which registration is maintained, subject to the following limitations: 1) A student may be debarred from writing the final examination for failure to maintain satisfactory academic standing throughout the year. 2) Any student who, in the opinion of the instructor, is absent too frequently from class or laboratory periods in any course will be reported to the Dean of the Faculty offering the course (after due warning has been given). On the recommendation of the Department concerned, and with the permission of the Dean of that Faculty, the student will be debarred from taking the regular examination in the course. The Dean of the Faculty offering the course will communicate that decision to the Dean of the Faculty of registration. Class CancellationsIn the event of a cancellation of class, every effort will be made to post that information on the Huron website,“Postings of Service Disruptions”).
