There is a basket in my room that all class and homework assignments go into. If the student finishes the assignment in class, they may turn it into the basket. Otherwise it will go in their homework folder and should be put in the basket first thing in the morning.
I realize students are involved in activities outside of school. In MOST cases, homework is work that was not finished in class. I try to give students time to finish class work or at least get a good portion completed. However, some students work at a slower pace than others and it is hard for him/her to finish in class.
Students that receive an F on a paper are expected to redo the assignment and turn it back in. They will receive a 70% for fixing the paper instead of the F. Students should make corrections to the paper as soon as possible so it it is still be fresh in their minds.
