“A student shall be considered absent from the class if he/she is not present within the first third
fraction of the scheduled class time”; 7.3 “A student shall be considered late or tardy if he/she
arrived in the class during the first third fraction of the scheduled class time”; and 7.4 “Three

Class preparation

Intellectual Honesty
The class in World Literature is challenging but this does not entail that student may commit
any forms of intellectual dishonesty. You are tasked to submit synthesis papers in this course on
the topics announced by the instructor. This paper will concentrate on your reflection/synthesis to
the readings assigned for that week. Synthesis papers should be brief, logical, and concise. You
should develop a thesis statement and defend it with arguments. You may follow the S-E-E
format which means STATE (YOUR THESIS), EXPLAIN (YOUR ARGUMENTS), AND
EXAMPLES. You can also consider objections against the topics. However avoid plagiarism,
aware or unaware, at all times. But what constitutes plagiarism? For your information, you may
visit: http://www.plagiarism.org/plagiarism-101/what-is-plagiarism). Please be reminded of p. 63
subsection 2.29 of the PUP Student Handbook stating that “Dishonesty, such as cheating during
any examination, quiz or test, and plagiarism in connection with any academic work…shall be
punishable.” Papers must follow the format for citations and references found in Kate Turabian’s
A Manual of Style for Writers of Theses and Dissertations, all editions.
