Language Arts Grade 8 (Writing Center) School Year: 2014-2015
Please note: Students should check in with the teacher the following day after an absence in order to gather any missed classwork. If a student, who was absent for a period of time, is unable to make-up missed work during the school day, then it will be assigned for homework. Of course, an extension will be given as needed in order to successfully complete any missed assignments.
In addition, students have been informed about the importance of staying focused during class. Students will have a menu of tasks each day, which will include independent work time. If a student uses his/her class time wisely, then he/she will have a minimal amount of homework when it is assigned.
