Class Participation

Students will be called upon frequently during full group discussions to express their views on assigned readings, group work, and individual homework problems. The quality of your participation will be a factor in your final grade.


Class attendance is important as it provides each student an opportunity to clarify and test your understanding of the material covered during class discussions. Students are responsible for all material covered and announcements made during classes that are missed. Students are

responsible for assignments missed during the course of any documented excused absence. It is the responsibility of the student to arrange with the teacher a satisfactory and agreed upon timetable to complete these assignments. Students have two school days to develop a timetable.

The teacher at his discretion may allow students to arrange a satisfactory timetable to complete assignments missed for an unexcused absence. Students have one day to arrange a timetable.
