EDLINE: I update EDLINE at least every two weeks, if not more frequently which I tend to do most of the time.    If there is an or question on a grade, please follow these procedures::

        1. Print a copy of the EDLINE report showing the error.

        2. Highlight the line which the error is located.

        3. Attached the graded returned work that is in question and staple it to the back of the printed EDLINE report

        4. DO NOT place in any CLASS BIN which is used for homework, but hand it to me.

       5. I normally make corrections the next available LUNCHTIME

IDENTIFICATION

  •  Make sure you IDENTIFY YOUR FULL NAME,  PERIOD, DATE and TITLE of your HOMEWORK or other TASKING on every assignment turned in for credit.  I do deduct 5 points off the earned grade for missing information.

EXTRA CREDIT

  •  In addition, as an optional opportunity to earn EXTRA CREDIT, (OPTIONAL) There are CONTENT VOCABULARY for each LESSON at the beginning of each lesson .    On a sheet of paper (FRONT & BACK is okay) write the TERM or PERSON and define in a narrative sentence.  This MUST BE hand-written and not word-processed.  Make sure it applies to the specific content of that Unit.  You may go to outside sources, but make sure they apply to the historical chapter concepts.  You MUST turn in 100% of the CONTENT VOCABULARY  in order to receive EXTRA CREDIT POINTS. 

HOMEWORK

  •  If you have an excused absence, you have as many days as you were absent to make up the material if the assignments were given during your absence.   You must come see me the first day back to school.     You are responsible for getting any assignments you missed at a time I designate.  Assignments posted in advance (the Sunday before the school week) on my webpage (HOMEWORK PAGE) is to be turned in the very next day unless you make arrangements with me for an exception.  Otherwise, if you are turning in work late because you have an excused absence, be sure to write ABSENT, and highlight the word at the top of each assignment.  Any work due to a field trip, sporting event, or preplanned absence must be turned in NLT the morning of the assignment or the day before or it will be considered late.

Incomplete HOMEWORK turned in on time.  Missing ONE ITEM is 20% off; Missing TWO ITEMS is 30% off; No others accepted as you can turn in work for late credit up to 3 days before end of grading period for 50% of earned credit. 

QUIZZES

  •  In case of of QUIZZES that are less than 50 points, any student who missed them will automatically receive a NG on EDLINE.  That means you will not have to make them up and will not count in your GPA.  However, any quiz over 50 points will have to be made up on the FIRST MAKEUP DAY following the absence.  MAKEUP DAYS for Academic Year 2013-14 are WEDNESDAYS & FRIDAYS at 0800 in our room.  Any exceptions (for example, BCC attendance) will be explained beforehand to the student.   These MAKEUP DAY QUIZZES (like MAKEUP TESTS) will be difference so we can get the results back sooner to the students.

  •                **  Unannounced QUIZZES (SNAPSHOTS) are given periodically to ensure students are reviewing and preparing for class.  These will not be made up in case of absences AND only count as 25 points.

TESTS

  • INCLASS TESTS & QUIZZES come directly from TEXTBOOK.   TESTMOZ TESTS/QUIZZES are written for comprehension of the content in a format seen either in ADVANCED PLACEMENT  (APUSH & AP PSYCHOLOGY), or END-OF-COURSE (EOCs) for HONORS HISTORY.  These ONLINE exams may require research of information outside the textbook for comprehension.  Since ONLINE TESTS/QUIZZES are OPEN BOOK you will have no problems.

TEST RETAKE

  •  My policy allows students who fail a test to retake ONE TEST in a nine-week period, but no test retake if it falls within 3 school days of the end of any grading period (or Mid-Term or Finals) because there will not be any time for retakes.  So, please don't plan on waiting to take a retake during that period.  Please remember that you can ONLY DO THIS ONCE in a 9-week grading period - so choose wisely!.  The highest grade that you can receive on the retake is a 75%. The retake must be completed prior to FIVE DAYS before the end of any grading period.   It is your responsibility to plan in advance and communicate with me.  Once you commit to a make-up date, any absence (NO-SHOW) from that date will cancel the opportunity and you will receive the original grade.    If you decide to take the retake, it is the grade you will receive, and not the average of the two.  So, please carefully weigh your decision as it is possible to receive a lower grade on the retake. All retakes will be completed outside of class and conducted at our morning makeup dates. Don't forget, you must notify me if you plan on taking a retake. YOU MUST GIVE ME A 2-DAY NOTICE TO COMPILE ANOTHER TEST.    You must demonstrate the same level of understanding on the retake that you were required to demonstrate on the original test.  Retakes are not the same test previously taken.   However, there are NO RETAKES on the UNIT EXAMS, ONLINE EXAMS,  ESSAYS, or QUIZZES.

  • CHADS (-3 points of earned grade)

  • PAPER FORMAT (-5 points for missing name; - 2 points for period, date (or -3 for missing both); - 5 points for title of assignment)
