Know when assignments are due! Check the side whiteboard every day before class begins and update your agenda. Assignments sometimes don’t get posted to Infinite Campus until later, so always keep a record of what’s due and when.
Type your homework! CAN’THandwritten work is only for when you CAN’T type it, not for when you don’t feel like it and just want to do it quickly! mustHandwritten work must be neatly done. If you find yourself crossing out stuff and writing over it, you need to rewrite. Do a second draft!
Type your homework! When you type, double-space! If you can’t print it, email it. –Attach a Word document to the email and send it to my email address, not yours! –firstname.lastname@example.org@fairfieldschools.org If you have to write it out, leave margins on both edges of the paper; don’t fill up the whole sheet; leave room for teacher’s comments!
Spend time on your work! Don’t expect good grades if you just dash off quick answers to homework assignments. You need to spend time thinking before you write anything. Explain your answers. Give appropriate details, and don’t just write the shortest thing you think you can get away with.
Spend time on your work! Read the assignment carefully before you try answering the questions. Refer to information from the reading, but don’t copy word-for-word! Always write in complete in sentences. Proofread your work and ask yourself if someone else could understand what your said. NEATNESS COUNTS!And don’t forget: NEATNESS COUNTS!
Turn in work on time! Half credit the next day. Zero anytime after that! *Unless there is a legitimate excuse
Keep you graded homework, quizzes & tests in your binder! Old homework is something to study from when you have tests. Test questions often come from homework assignments, so keep the graded assignments that are returned to you and study from them at test times. Many of those test questions also appear on the Midterm and Final Exams.
Keep packets and handouts in a special binder just for this class. You will get a number of packets that supplement classwork and the textbook. Most of them will be for homework or test review, and many will be readings to supplement the textbook. Keep all of these handouts in a special binder just for this class. Don’t throw them out or lose them. You’ll need them to study for exams!
