Ø For the major assignments of Peer/co-teaching there will not be the opportunity to “redo”. We will, however, have ample time to work together to ensure the best quality of work will be presented.
Ø For the major writing assignments like DBQs, one re-write per paper will be built into the schedule. This is voluntary and the two grades will be averaged together.
Ø LATE WORK: If the work is to prepare for the next day’s class, I will be clear about this and the work is expected to be complete. Otherwise it is a zero (0).
If the work is longer term and it is late, you will have 2 weeks to turn it in for 70% of the earned grade. If you turn it in more than 2 weeks late, you may earn only 50% of the earned grade.
Ø The school policy is clearly defined in your assignment notebook/ student handbook.
Ø Students who have trouble with attendance will have trouble passing this class. Most of the material needed on major assessments is material we discussed during class, not in a textbook. As this class is discussion/seminar based, when absent, reading will be assigned.
Ø Students are responsible for making up any assignments immediately after being absent. Any unexcused absence (skipping class or school) will result in disciplinary action by the administration.
