Below are a few concerns, please read carefully. If you have questions email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
One-time Waiver: If you send in an assignment by 4:00 pm on the due date to my email email@example.com, I will not take points off. Again, you are entitled to this only one time. It is essential that you learn to meet deadlines accordingly.
If you are to send an attachment of a typed work, then you must SAVE it in Word or pdf, so that if it does not print, you may then be able to print it from school. However, make every attempt to print it on your own.
If you embed the document to your email, it will be illegible when I receive it (I need to see the MLA format). Make sure that you save the document as Word or pdf. Then browse for the document within your computer's files and attach to the email before you send. Make sure you have the paperclip or thumbtack on your email prior to sending it to me.
If you have a different situation, talk to me. I may allow you to send in the assignment by midnight, but this is on an individual needs basis.
All students on 504, IEP, ESOL, are allowed some extra time on a case-by-case basis. That is depending on the assignment. I ALWAYS give two days for every assignment, and depending on the work, I give up to a week. Therefore, I am already accommodating EVERYONE, but I am still here for you.
Ten points will be taken off the grade for every late day and/or errors that may cause to delay the schedule. Remember, it is for your learning that I assign work, you must follow the instructions according to these established parameters for this class.
Lastly, MLA format means:
-double-spaced at all times -heading with full name, period, and date on the left-hand side -numbered pages -margins on left and right, top and bottom on all pages -always use 12-sized font and Times New Roman See an example here: MLA Paper Sample
One final note-Dress code is part of the School Board's policy and it is included in the Code of Conduct. Ladies and gentlemen, please do not wear hanging pants, too short shorts, or spaghetti blouses that are too revealing. Your clothes do matter and create an image of you. I expect to follow this policy within my classroom and will have no qualms in sending you to the office if your attire is not appropriate for the classroom environment. Respect my rules, respect your peers, respect yourself.
This is your final warning. This is high school preparing you for future endeavors.
