LOOK BELOW FOR NEW ADDITIONS.
Here we find groups of documents clearly connected to our daily lessons.
For example, here's the standard bla bla bla to put on worksheets so students know how to get their homework assignments on terakki DOT net.
We're in the process of re-organizing this section, so bear with us.

One very important item (formerly under Lagniappes) is the ELT Menu, which should be put on all computers you expect to use. It's relatively easy to install, so just check the directions. Other bits of crucial information are included in the various files and folders. Please read everything here carefully.




TWO IMPORTANT NOTES
REGARDING POINTS:


A. DISTRIBUTION



  1. Recognition items on an exam should amount to 25-33% of the total points; more is NOT acceptable.
  2. Free production (3 or more sentences in connected discourse) should amount to 25-33% of the total points; more is possible, and oftentimes required.
  3. Controlled production (with various degrees of constraint) needs to amount to roughly 33 to 50%.

B. SKILLS



  1. "Normal" language activities [ = reading, writing, listening (and speaking) = things regular people do when their language teachers are not looking] should account for
    67 - 75% of the total points.
  2. Vocabulary and grammar [together referred to as "usage"] should under no circumstances account for more that 33% of the total points; 25% is much preferred.
