- Assignments are to be turned in at the start of class. You have 2 late passes per semester. After you’ve used up your passes, you can only earn a maximum of 10% credit, and this is only available up to one week after the due date.
- Late work (and absent work) goes in the RED bucket.
- Computer/printer problems are not an excuse for late work.
- Whenever there is a reading assignment, you should be prepared to take a reading quiz. Also, be prepared to have me check your reading notes.
- Come to class prepared to discuss the material.
- I expect that you will do your own work. Stealing ideas from other people’s work does not show me what you are learning. Consequences include detentions, re-doing the assignment, and losing 50-100 percent of the points for the assignment.
- We will go over proper documentation in class, and you are expected to understand how and when to cite. If you are unsure, ask me.
- Unless you are supposed to be doing outside research, do not use internet sources to help you with your work.
- Unless you have asked permission, do not give or receive help with classwork.
- It is your job to find out what you missed. Do NOT ask me until you’ve checked your unit calendar.
- Absent work goes in the RED bucket.
- If you missed something, you must make it up within the number of days you missed + one.
- Make-ups may be done before or after school, if you schedule with me (use e-mail). You can also do this during a study hall, but you must come to my room, not the LRC.
