Extra Credit

Sometimes extra credit assignments will be offered.  Much of the extra credit will be rewarded based on participation and integration of the curriculum.  For example, a student who effectively incorporates the “word of the week” into their dialogue would be a good candidate for extra credit.  Students who work well with others and help their classmates are also good for extra credit.  A student can always hand in an extra credit essay and receive 20 points added to a quiz grade.


Extra Help

I am available most days at recess and after school on Wednesdays if you need extra help or more time to work on assignments for this class.


Late Work Policy

I have a bin in the classroom for late work.  Work handed in a day late will only be able to receive a 50% grade.  Work will not be accepted if it is more than one day late.  Sometimes rare situations for work being late occur; when these instances arise consideration will be taken into effect.
