The EL230 course is made up of 15 two-hour tutorials of face-to-face interaction which students have to attend.

Only through active participation in the tasks assigned in the course could students realize the full benefits and achieve the learning outcomes of the course.
8. GenerAL gUIDELINES ON wRITING YOUR tma
The notes below give general advice on planning and writing assignments. In all assignments, you need to pay particular attention to the development of your argument – drawing on what you have learned about academic writing in other literature courses at AOU. Start by outlining what you are going to do, and then write the introduction with a clear thesis statement. When you have finished writing the assignment, make sure that the introduction does indeed outline the work that you have written. Structure the main body of your answer carefully by developing ideas and arguments systematically. Try to include ‘signposts’ to help your reader. Finally, remember not to introduce new points in your conclusion.
You are expected to write your assignments in English of a standard reflecting honours-level undergraduate study. Your mark will suffer if your TMA is not written in good English (including grammar, vocabulary, spelling, writing techniques, etc.). When you have finished your assignment, you should read it through carefully. Check that it is clearly written, that it addresses the question asked, and that it provides a full answer to that question.
If you submit an assignment that contains work that is not your own, without indicating this to the marker (acknowledging your sources), you are committing ‘plagiarism’. This might occur in an assignment when you:
  • use a choice phrase or sentence that you have come across
  • copy word-for-word directly from a text
  • copy an original idea from another source and present it as your own
  • paraphrase the words from a text very closely
  • use text downloaded from the Internet
  • borrow statistics or assembled facts from another person or source
  • copy or download figures, photographs, pictures or diagrams without acknowledging your sources
  • copy from the notes or essays of a fellow student
  • copy from your own notes, on a text, tutorial, video or lecture, which contain direct quotations
Where plagiarised material is included in your TMA, tutors are likely to notice the shifts in language competence and style and thus may be aware of the source. . By submitting work that is not your own, you are denying yourself the benefit of this valuable learning strategy. Copying the work of others would be counter-productive to your goal of understanding the course work and to real achievement. Most students will not wish to take such a negative approach to studying, and the University does not tolerate it.
Although you are encouraged to show the results of your reading by referring to and quoting from works on your subject, copying from such sources without acknowledgement is deemed to be plagiarism and will not be accepted by the University. You are encouraged to collaborate with others in studying, but submitted work copied from or written jointly with others is not acceptable, unless collaboration is required in the particular assignment. Therefore in the future you will be asked to sign a statement to confirm that all assessment work you have submitted is your own.
Submitting work that has been done by someone else and persistent borrowing of other people’s work without citation are obvious instances of plagiarism and are regarded as cheating. Paying for work from other sources and submitting it as your own is also cheating. It is intellectually dishonest to cheat and thus give one student an unfair advantage over others. If a case of plagiarism is proven, this is considered a serious offence and the Arab Open University disciplinary procedures will be followed.
Referencing Conventions: MLA Format
Whether you are quoting directly or simply referring to source material, academic convention requires that you should acknowledge where your information has come from, that is, its source. Always cite your sources in the body of your text, and give references as appropriate at the end. You may find it helpful to take note of the style adopted by the course authors, as well as using the guidance on referencing conventions provided below.
The preferred format for your TMA in this course is the Modern Language Association (MLA) format. The MLA format uses in-text citation, and a list of sources used and referenced in your essay at the end on the “Works Cited” page. The best reference for MLA formatting is the MLA Handbook for Writers of Research Papers itself; you can also use one of the numerous online guides for MLA formatting. Here are some of the basics to get you started.
