Problem of the Day (P.O.D.): Posted on smartboard when students walk into classroom. The P.O.D is a problem or question related to the previous days’ lesson for students to respond to. Students are to complete the P.O.D. in their composition workbook. 

Late Work:  For each day an assignment is late, one letter grade will be taken from the assignment grade. After one (1) week, late work will not be accepted and will result in an automatic “F.” If the student has an excused absence, student will receive two (2) days for every day the student is absent before it is considered late. For example, if a student is absent for one (1) day, student have two (2) days to complete the assignment. After two (2) days, the assignment is late. All work will be posted on my webpage.
