NEW: Expectations
Students are expected to learn the material presented in chapters 1-15 in Ann pale krey6l and in
chapters 1-6 in Ti koze sou istwapeyi Dayiti. A vast majority of the vocabulary used in Ann pale krey6l is
found in the glossary at the end of the book. Vocabulary found in Ti koze sou istwapeyi Dayiti can be
found online at the class web site (as of October 20th) and, of course, in the dictionaries on reserve at
Library West and the Smathers Latin American collection. Students are expected to take the initiative
to use these resources.

NEW: Class web site
A web site is presently available to students. Under the section "Class Notes" students can find all
class notes available in a PDF file. Links to Haitian Creole internet radio programs, a Haitian Creole







comic, a translation of Martin Luther King, Jr. in Haitian Creole, and more are available. Students are
urged to make use of the supplemental material. Reviewing class notes can be excellent exam review.

NEW: Tutors
The following tutors are available at reasonable and negotiable rates. You are encouraged to
contact these highly skilled individuals:

Raphael Roumain: rafahl0@yahoo.com
Fabiola Avignon: lavenderlj@yahoo.com

NEW: Your textbook
Students' complaints about the textbook are often valid, but the fact remains that no alternative
exists. Furthermore, it is important to note that thousands of students have used Ann pale krey6l
beneficially at the university level and in language programs of the United States government. If students
are aware of an alternative, they are encouraged to bring it to our attention.

NEW: Standard Haitian Creole
The variety of Haitian Creole found in Ann pale krey6l is called Standard Haitian Creole. Standard
Haitian Creole, which is spoken by a large majority of Haitians, has dominated publishing in Haitian
Creole for 50 years. The most prestigious publication in Standard Haitian Creole is the Bible, Bib la.
Students are encouraged to purchase a copy of the 1999 Bib la (with updated orthography) in order to
become better acquainted with Standard Haitian Creole.

NEW: Policy on Journal Entries
Students' complaints about the difficulty of writing a journal entry so early in the semester are
reasonable. As my syllabus directed Kiran to proceed in the assigning and collecting of that work, I take
full responsibility. Consequently, any journal entries already turned in and graded can either be left as is
(if the results were acceptable to the student) or be redone without any penalty [unless plagiarism was
involved (see Kiran for details)].
The 5 journal entry assignments will now be to answer the questions found at the end of the first 5
chapters of Ti koze sou istwapeyi Dayti.
Again, if your first scores were acceptable to you, you are not required to complete those
questions. However, you are still expected to read the passages.

NEW: Alphabetization in Ann pale kreybl [APK]
The alphabetization found in APK follows an early model based on the sounds of Haitian Creole
and not the traditional Roman alphabet. Thus, words are arranged in the following order:

AZ is followed by AN (because AN is considered an independent letter)
OY is followed by ON (because ON is considered an independent letter)
OV is followed by OU (because OU is considered an independent letter)
ET is followed by EN (because EN is considered an independent letter)

I personally, with creolist colleagues, waged a two-year argument against this alphabetical
ordering. Dr. Valdman has changed his views on this matter but the ordering remains in the textbook for
now. However, by following the ordering guidelines given above, you should be able to find virtually all







the words in the textbook. Additionally, you should make use of the dictionaries on the syllabus. They do
use conventional roman alphabetical order.

Class objectives:
Our objective is to help develop your competence in speaking, reading, writing and listening in
Haitian Creole. These goals are accomplished by means of a classroom setting in which communicative,
form-focused and meaningful activities engage learning. In addition to the instruction of Haitian Creole
language, the instruction of Haitian culture and society are daily parts of the class experience.

Attendance policy:
Students are expected to attend class daily. Students may have 3 unexcused absences. Each
additional unexcused absence will result in a lowering of the final grade by 1% per absence. Furthermore,
absence results in a score of zero for participation. Advice: don't be absent.
If a student is absent, he or she is expected to contact the instructor within 24 hours with the
reason for his or her absence. Medical treatment or a personal or family crisis are grounds for an excused
absence, a note including a contact phone number is required.

Working together communicatively:
Since this class takes a communicative approach to the instruction of Haitian Creole, finding the
right balance between listening, reading, taking notes and talking with your partners is an important part
of working together. In order to maximize on the variety of in-class partners, students should expect to
work with different partners on a daily basis. This spreads talent evenly throughout the class and prevents
the formation of unproductive and exclusive social cliques. The communicative approach assumes that
each student will provide instructional input and feedback to her or his fellow classmates.

NEW: Grade distribution and important dates for 1st semester HC
Homework 10% May be assigned and not collected.
May be collected unannounced. No
late work accepted (except for excused absences).

*Guidelines for the 5 short written assignments:
Each of these 5 assignments will be a journal entry in which you are free to address issues that interest
you. Each assignment is to contain no less than 100 words. They may be handwritten or typed. If they are
handwritten, the script must be legible.

tEssay/Creative piece guidelines
This work must address Haiti, Haitian culture/history/politics/society, Haitian Creole or the Haitian
Diaspora (i.e. Florida, New York, Quebec, France, French Guyana, etc.). At the end of the semester the
class will publish the assignment in a web-based magazine. Essays must be appropriate for the WWW
(but your Free Speech Rights are in effect). This is designed to be a credential for your CV. Essays must
be typed and double-spaced. Times New Roman .12 font must be used with appropriate accents
(handwritten accents are not accepted). A web page version is to be submitted. In order to type accents in
Microsoft Word follow these guidelines:

1) Ctrl + +e =
2) Ctrl + + o = 6
3) Ctrl + +a =

Citations from outside sources (printed or electronic) are strongly recommended and should be
accompanied by appropriate bibliographical references. Example:
Book:
Author. Year of publication. Title of book. City of publisher: Publisher.
Article in journal, magazine, etc.:
Author. Year of publication. Title of article. Name of source, Issue of publication, pages
numbers.
