Student Expectations

  • Complete the daily work
  • Contact me for questions, comments, concerns - Moodle is the best way to contact me
  • Contribute to discussions using higher-level thinking and inquiry.
  • NEVER give up on themselves - I won't either

Late work will not be accepted unless students are granted an extension.

Extra credit is very rare and not typical, but I will allow students to re-submit assignments for a higher score.
