Do NOT miss class simply because you do not have an assignment finished. Do NOT miss class if you can possibly come; save any absences for sickness or death in the family. If you have an extended illness, please contact me to let me know.
Kindly try to be a class on time. If you are consistently tardy for no good reason, I reserve the right to count three tardies as an absence.
If you have to leave early, please inform me before class. Do not schedule extra work, doctor's appointments, etc. during class time if at all possible. If you are too frequent in leaving early, I reserve the right to count early departures as a partial absence, adversely affecting your grade.
Absences may be excused if you bring me documentation that you were ill, involved in an accident, on school business, or there was a death in the immediate family. More than three hours of unexcused absences will result in your being dropped from the course. You may pay a fine and petition to be reinstated. Additional unexcused absences will result in your being dropped without future reinstatement. No credit will be given for a course in which absences, both excused and unexcused, total more than 25% of the hours of the course (i.e., more than 16 class periods).
Class may be dismissed due to class room conflicts during Lectureship week March 28-31. Students will be expected to attend at least a one hour class or lecture for each hour missed and turn in a one-page report on the class or lecture attended. The reports will count as attendance grades.
Ten points will be given for attendance. One point will be deducted for each class missed, including those missed for illness. The only exception to this will be those who miss on official school business and have an official notice to this effect. Two grace days will be given to allow for absences due to illness and excused absences for official school business. Note well: Grace days will be applied first to excused absences.
Additional readings/quizzes/essays/maps may be assigned.
The final grade will be based on your work in the following way:
Homework and Readings 10% Attendance 10% Vocabulary Quizzes 10% Chapter Quizzes 5% Major Tests 45% Final Exam 20%Extra credit may raise scores within an area but will not be allowed to exceed these percentages. The teacher may assign additional reading or bonus work that will count toward not more than 4% of the total, but is not obligated to do so. Your final grade will be A, B, C, D, or F. An A will be given for an average of 100-90, a B for 89-80, a C for 79-70, a D for 69-60, and an F for any average below 60.
All work is expected to be turned in on time. If for some reason you cannot make the due date, please ask my permission to turn the work in late. Late homework is not accepted, since the answers will often be given in class. When a student is ill enough to have a doctor's excuse, adjustment may be made to the grade to exclude the homework due at that time. All homework should be done, whether it is turned in or not.
Students who are absent on exam days with good reason may schedule a make-up exam within the next week. You must ask to take a make-up exam.
Students who score less than a 70 on a major exam may petition to retake the exam within a week after grades are returned on it. The highest grade on any retake exam will be 70. Once again, you must ask to retake an exam. There will be no retakes on the final exam. Study hard for it.
