RE: HS questions

We just had this same conversation on Middle-L listserv (middle school).
Most of the people there were really hard-nosed about due dates and proud of
it! Obviously not sensitive creative art teacher types! (smile) I will
accept late work, without penalty until the end of the grading quarter. My
trade-off is that I don't give out extra credit work.

I've found that parents are very relieved and appeased when I give them my
policy about accepting late work, rather than 'make do' extra credit work.

I'm so glad to hear you say this. My deadlines were always kinda vague,
like so many of y'all have mentioned (when the middlin' students were
nearing completion); even with the slackers, I hated not accepting their
work if they finished...eventually. A parent actually called me to task
for not enforcing deadlines more seriously; she certainly had a point,
but I just _hated_ not accepting something someone finally finished!
