Student Rights & Responsibilities

USING AUTOMATIC TRANSLATOR IS PLAGIARISM AND AGAINST THE HONOR CODE THAT ALL STUDENTS ARE EXPECTED TO RESPECT!

Please, do not use translators when writing you compositions in this novice French class!  Instead, go back to your book, and recombine the structures and vocabulary you have just learned to practice correct forms and progress in your writing proficiency.  You should also NOT receive help from friends or family fluent in the language!  This is cheating!  What you write at home should totally MATCH what you will write on your proctored tests.

I will INSTANTLY know that you have used a translator and after the first offense, you will receive a zero on the assignment and seriously affect the trust that I want to maintain with all my students.
