MISSING WORK/LATE WORK -If you don’t turn homework in when I collect it, then it’s late. -Late work is accepted for 30 points off the grade. -If you don’t turn in the class work, other measures may be taken: mandatory tutoring (working lunch/after school) Saturday school for 4 hours pulled from gym or elective to complete it **No 7 th graders failed Mrs. White’s class last year because she expects work to get done and follows through with efforts to get it turned in.
HOW TO RE-DO ASSIGNMENTS If you choose to re-do assignments* for a higher grade, you can get up to half the credit back. For example, if you made a 60 (-40 points), you can get up to an 80 (20 pts. back) by doing the following: 1.On notebook paper, write the questions with the answers that you missed and why you originally picked them/wrote them. 2.Under your original wrong answer, write your new answer, and justify why you picked it/wrote it based on the passage/grammar rules, etc. 3.Staple the notebook paper to the original assignment, and turn it in within 2 weeks of the original assignment date. Assignments near the end of the nine weeks may not allow for the two week window, and they must be submitted by Mrs. White’s deadline prior to the last week of the quarter. **Papers in the writing portfolio may not leave my classroom. Therefore, if a student wishes to re-do one, it must be done at lunch, during extra time in class, or after school.
