Homework is due at the beginning of class on the following day that it was assigned, unless an alternate date is given to the entire class.
Late 1 day - 10% off and a demerit
Late 2 days - 20% off and a demerit
Late 3 days - 30% off AND a Think About It
In addition to the above policy, all missing work must be turned in before a student is able to participate in special events or parties.
Only assignments with a 77% or lower (D+ and below) are able to be corrected. These papers will be marked with "ReDo" or "Correct" next to the score. Turning corrections back in is up to the student. I do not require them to be completed, but I do keep track of all students that turn them in, or do not turn them in. Tests and projects are not able to be corrected. It is a general rule that tests are not retaken.
Text Book & Study Guides
We use the text book for the "meat and potatoes" of our information, however I enjoy working outside of the text book as well. All students will take part in projects, crafts, presentations, and outside information as it pertains to what we are studying. All students are expected to bring their book with them on a daily basis unless otherwise told to do so.
At the end of each book lesson, the students fill out a graphic organizer and question sheet (notes worksheet) that is worth 10 points. These are generally filled out together. These notes worksheets are glued into their ISN (interactive student notebook). They also make flash cards for each vocabulary word in the chapter. These notes worksheets, vocab cards and the skill lesson pages of the chapter, become the "study guides" for their chapter tests.
