• Instructions for Continued Learning Opportunities  

     

    First and foremost, I hope and pray each of you are in good health and spirit during this times. I am going to be putting up learning opportunities on google classroom. This is what I have been doing from the beginning of the school year. I am also in the process of figuring out if I will give you assignments daily or give you all the assignments at the beginning of the week and let you work on them at your own pace. I will decide and let you know on Wednesday morning when I give the assignments for the rest of this week. If you have any questions, please email me. I will be checking my email often.

    Supplies:  Your student will need to have their supplies with them every day they come to class.

    2. A pencil and pen
    3. Access to an electronic device for google classroom activities

    Grading Policy

    • Summative (50%)
      • Includes exams, presentations, and major projects
    • Formative (50%)
      • Quizzes and minor projects (count double)
      • Daily work

    Late / Make-up Work Policy:

    • Late Work – late work is defined as any work not turned in on the class day it is due (not including make-up work due to absence).  Late work follows the scale listed below:

                            Formative Homework (excludes in-class work): 

    1 day late = minus 20

    2 days late = minus 40

    3 days late = minus 60

    4 days late = minus 80

    5 days late = no credit

    Summative Homework (projects, papers, etc)

    Minus 20 points per day

    Important Note – Late work must be handed directly to the teacher (not placed in the box/shelf).  Engineering is a highly responsible profession and learning to keep up with assignments and due dates is the one of the first steps in responsibility.

     

    • Make-up Work – make-up work is defined as missing work due to an absence.  If the student is absent due to illness or school related activity (such as a sporting event), it is the student’s responsibility to find out what work they missed on their first day back to school.  When possible, students should plan ahead and turn in assignments before a known absence (i.e. scheduled school related events like a band contest or athletic competition).  Remember, it is the student’s responsibility to obtain missing assignments from me and turn them in according to the following timeline: 

    1 day absence – day following return to school

    2 day absence – 2 days after return to school

    3 day absence – 3 days after return to school

    4 day absence – 4 days after return to school

    5 day absence – 5 days after return to school

    Make-up Work not completed within the above timeline will follow the late work policy listed above.  Reminder – please let me know of any extenuating circumstances so we can work together to help you/your student be successful in this course.
