I'm considering creating a FAQ for my interactive notebooks next year. I'm a bit tired of answering a desperate student's "What can I do to raise my grade". The answer is always the same. Redo something....
At any rate, my current list of Frequently Asked Questions that I'll develop a nifty thingie for...
Q: What can I do to improve my grade?
A: Redo anything that isn't graded in red.
Q: Can I have extra credit?
Q: Why don't you offer extra credit?
A: Because I offer resubmissions.
Q: Will you accept _____ late?
A: I will accept late projects, however, you've forfeited your right to resubmissions. I will not accept late homework. They're not worth enough in my class for me to bother with it.
Q: I lost my handout, may I have another?
A: A pdf is hosted on my website. You get it.
Q: What if I'm absent?
A: It's your responsibility to make up all work in a timely manner. You have the same number of days you were absent to make up work. If your work hasn't been turned in after the number of days you've been absent, your work is officially late, and late work rules will apply. For example, if you were sick for 2 days, you have two days to make it up. On the third day, it's considered late, and you will lose your resubmission privileges or your work may not be accepted.
