I'm looking for a way to manage my make up work assignments that put the responsibility on the students. Last year, my students got away with murder on make up work, because I simply didn't have a system together (ie, extra copies, page number assignments, away to keep up with who's make up work is do when, etc.). I've figured out a systme that handles a few aspects of the system (a grade book that allows me to enter the assignments with the day it was assigned as well as mark the student absent under the assignment while leaving a space to record the grade when I get it. From there it's just a matter of counting days to know when I should have received make up work). But I'm looking for a way of distributing the make up work that leaves me out of it. I was thinking of maybe having a binder of assignments. After assigning something, I would put 5-6 copies of the assignment in the notebook with the dates on it. When the students returned they could just go through the binder and pull a copy of the assignments with the dates they were absent written on them. Then nobody could blame the teacher when they get a zero for an assignment they didn't do while they were out. What do you think? Do you have a system that you think would be better?
