(hint: use your class time wisely and there should be no reason not to make the in class due date)
if there is a problem with fulfilling a due date you must see me individually and we will work something out.
Make up tests and quizzes – If you are absent on a day of a quiz or test, you have three days from the day you return, to make it up.
ATTENDANCE IS VERY VERY IMPORTANT: You are given class time to work on your projects…
Journals – There will be one question a day that you will be expected to write down and answer in your journal. These questions go along with the unit that we are working on. These are graded on a bi-weekly basis (if you do them, they will help your average, if you don’t do them…..).
Sketchbooks - are required for most classes
