I would love to hear any and all suggestions for the age-old question: How do you deal with absentee students? As in, keeping track of what was missed, handouts, notes, group work done that day...? Last year I felt my approach was too haphazard, with the responsibility *supposedly* falling on the student to see me to get a list of missed assignments (printed out from the online gradebook), get handouts from the extra copy bin, schedule missed tests/quizzes, explain missed projects, and so on... What ended up happening more often than not was that students wouldn't come see me, or would say they would and then not show up at the scheduled time, and would not know what was going on in class. Does anyone have a clear-cut way to plan for and organize absentee make-up work? I teach both Jr. High and HS so ideas that work for both are especially appreciated!
