Make-Ups

Minimize

 

 

Any in-class assignments that are missed due to excused absences can be made up during my tutorial times or Thursday after school with the appointed English teacher (teachers are on a rotating schedule for department make-ups, so please check with me first).  Out-of-class assignments are due one class period (per the number of my classes missed) upon returning from an excused absence.

Assignments worth a daily grade that are late (not due to an excused absence) are not accepted and will result in a zero.  Assignments worth a major or quiz grade will be deducted 10 points per calendar day when late.

 

Tutorials

Minimize

Tutorials are Mondays and Thursdays after school until 4:00pm or by appointment. 

Class Assignments & Homework

Minimize

 All out-of-class assignments must be submitted on Turnitin.com (through Itslearning) with a less than 10% "originality" score. 

Upload your assignments in pdf or Word format on Turnitin.com!  If there is an originality issue, you may resubmit, but it may take 24 hours to process the resubmission so turn in the work ahead of time if possible.

  

 Due dates are listed on my three week calendars under Resources for both AP and Dual Credit. Changes will be listed below.
