I teach Middle school dudes and dudets. I always have two groups of people that are not done on the due date, the "detail oriented" type and the "I wasted time in class". I give a week past the due date for them to take home the work or see me during my planning, before or after school. After the first week I then start to deduct a grade for each day late. My problem is 1st semester I'm pumped to call parents after that first week and tell them junior does not have her/his work in and it is late, by 2nd semester I'm too busy and figure it is the students responsibility. I probably should call.
