Daily Assignment - Students are required to write a daily journal entry. These will be graded on a nine week basis. Students are not responsible for journal entries when they are absent for any reason.
I expect my students to ALWAYS bring a library book with them to class. If they finish the daily assignment, I expect them to be reading.
Extra credit - I offer extra credit at various times. I do offer extra credit for signed and returned progress reports.
Progress Reports - I will hand these out on the 3rd, 5th, and 7th week of each nine weeks.
