As you all are old enough to understand
the concept of responsibility and deadlines, I simply do not accept late work.
It is YOUR responsibility to come and see me if you are having trouble with an
assignment or if you are going to be or were absent on any given day. You
are allowed to turn in previously assigned work on the day you return to school
and must come see me to find out what you missed. Major projects, such as
those that have over a month to complete, will have their own absentee
procedures. I give assignments to help you absorb the material
during class, not just to keep you busy. Therefore, you will do the
assignment because you want to do well in my class, not because I am going to
force you to.
will consider any student's individual circumstances in granting
any extension to the due date. I realize things do come up and what may be
good for one student may not be good for another. I will decide each case
individually and your reputation will play a key role in my decision.
If there is
ANYTHING you are not sure of, come see me BEFORE the assignment is due. It
is very difficult to sympathize with you if you come to me in a panic one minute
before class starts!
