Excuse me, but I want to ask something. Do I need to make presentations and reports the whole year as others, then make a COMPLETE report and then pass a test answering some questions from missed lessons..I am not quite sure that it is fair!

Hi, Ann. I'm afraid we've had enough discussion about the 'fair-unfair' topic today although I see your point. We can agree on something else next year but so far our arrangement is as follows:

1. Group 1 (Irina Sviridova, Hamida Gitsba, Naala Avidzba, Alexandra Pozdnyakova): attendance of classes+reports in class+uploading files on the web-site+editing the web-page - get credit automatically
2. Group 2 (Olga Lakhnova, Julia Fedotova, Alexandra Shoshneva): attendance of classes+reports in class+uploading files on the web-site - have to make a presentation "What is the USA for me" on the day of the credit
3. Group 3 (Ann Silova): attendance of classes+reports in class - has to write a report and discuss the topics of the missed classes
4. Group 4 (Sveta, both Sergeys and Orkhan): have to write a report and make a presentation of it, be ready to answer questions on the programme

Anna said

at 2:01 pm on Apr 28, 2011

But I am afraid we have not enough discussion because I CERTAINLY remeber that the agreement was TO WRITE A REPORT or TO UPLOAD PRESENTATIONS, so I've chosen REPORT there was not a single word about questions missed classes! Shoud I upload my presentations and not do anything else like others??

Anna said

at 2:13 pm on Apr 28, 2011

or I am the only who shoud do everything (to work the whole year and to answer obscure questions like those who were always absent)?

Julie Fedotova (UlcheG) said

Ann was doing the same things as we were for the whole year. She just didn't upload these files on this web-site. And now she has to make a report and answer some questions. Does this mean that it's really important to upload file, not to show it in the class? Wether you make or don't make presentations, if you have done nothing on the site, you have to make reports and so on. Is it fair?
