LATE WORK POLICIES
LATE WORK IS ACCEPTED FOR ALL COURSE WORK,
WITH THE EXCEPTION OF DISCUSSION QUESTIONS/OBSERVATIONS.
This document will make clear what the
late policies are for different types of course work.
When the class period ends on the due
date the paper copy of the work is late.
Students can always mitigate some of
the lateness penalty by turning work in to the main office. Simply give the
assignment to someone at reception, tell them it is for me, and they will send
it to my campus mailbox with the date and time it was turned
Some assignments require TurnItIn.com submissions, which are due ten
(10) minutes or more prior to the beginning of class on or before the due date;
the assignment is late unless I have the paper copy and the TurnItIn.com copy. Also see Lecture 4 on TurnItIn.com

major projects have a different late policy and penalty than does other course work, and the particulars of each are explained below:
major projects: 10% penalty per class period late. Late major projects can be turned in up to one week late,
after which they will not be accepted, and the project will earn a grade of
zero. This includes the following:
Personal Response Essay: TurnItIn.com submission required
Connections Essay: TurnItIn.com submission required
Annotated Bibliography: TurnItIn.com submission required
Bibliographic Analysis Essay: TurnItIn.com
Argumentative Research Paper: TurnItIn.com
minor assignments: 5% penalty per calendar day late, which includes
weekends, holidays, breaks, and so on. This includes the following:
Personal Writing Papers: TurnItIn.com submissions required
Academic Prose Papers: TurnItIn.com submissions required
Reading Skills Portfolio: No TurnItIn.com
Research Presentation: can possibly be rescheduled at the
instructor’s discretion, but the economy of time may make this impossible, in
which case a zero would be recorded for the presentation grade. A late penalty
of 5% per calendar day late may be assessed for either
a late presentation and/or the late turn-in of the works cited page for this
assignment. It is best to make the presentation on the scheduled date. No TurnItIn.com
are no direct points earned from turning in discussion questions/observations;
however, these assignments are one of the factors assessed in determining students’
participation grades. Basically, these are
assignments, so failure to participate by turning them in on time will result
in a reduction of the participation grade. This goes to the issue of being
prepared for class. No
TurnItIn.com submissions required.

Questions/Observations are the only types of assignments where you do not lose
credit for failing to turn them in.
read the homework and the activities at least once class ahead on the syllabus.
assignments must be typed, and are not accepted late.
Handwritten discussion questions/observations earn zero credit. When the
assignment is typed it demonstrates that it was
prepared before class.

Be prepared for a class
discussion on the discussion day.
I will not remind students to
turn in these assignments. Simply leave them in one pile on a desk near the
front of the room, and I will pick them up at the end of class.
If the discussion
question/observation is over a video clip, then only the typed discussion
question/observation is due on the discussion day.
