    Due Dates – In class due date – This date will be the last day in class that we will be working on a specific project.  After this date you will need to come in and work on your project or take it home to finish.


    Final due date -  Apx. 4-5 days after the in class due date.  This                                                 is the last day to hand in a project.


    (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…..).
