Students are responsible
and will be held accountable for all classwork and
of circumstances (within reason). Because all work is available on this
site, absences do not excuse late assignments. Notebooks, laptops, texts, writing utensils, assignments,
etc., are to be brought to class daily, unless otherwise instructed by the teacher.
The primary text is occasionally used in class.
All homework is worth 10 points and is to be typed. It is due on the assigned day. If it is not handed in
class, it is considered late. You can hand it in one class day late for half credit (5/10pts.). After

Grading is simple: a
student's total number of points from assignments, tests, quizzes, and papers will be added up and divided by the total number

Website and E-mail:
My website contains all homework
assignments, test dates, paper information, important links, and reading guide questions.
It is the student's responsiblity to check the website on a daily basis. All homework assignments are to be typed and if a printer is unavailable, the student is required to e-mail
the assignment as a MS Word attachment.
*NOTE: Students should check this site daily for
updated assignments, test dates, projects, etc. Students
who are absent due to medical necessities or family emergencies will be given time to make up missed work. Students
who are absent for other reasons are expected to hand in missed work or take make-up exams upon their return.
