· I do not assign homework! Any work that your student brings home is either a project or an assignment that was not finished in class. At the start of the year, you might want to look for homework in your student's backpack 1-2 times per week, depending upon your student’s ability to finish assignments in class.
· This Humanities class is total points based. There are no category weights.
· To receive full credit assignments must be turned in at the beginning of class, on the day they are due.
· Partial credit will be given if an assignment is turned in late.
· An excused absence will not reduce credit.
· You may access grades at home by registering for and checking the Skyward Family Access website.
