What's your late work policy? I have so many students who are unmotivated, but then right at the end of the marking period want to bring in work to boost their grades. I feel sorry for them and feel some work is better than no work, but I hate the extra work this gives me. What to do? I have been reducing their grades, but this doesn't seem to stem their urge to do this again. At first, I said I would not accept late work, and then many of my lowest students felt they were so far behind, so then what's the point of even trying. If a student has an excused absence, I said I would give them a week to make up work, but when you have 180 kids, it's hard to keep track of when that week is up or not. Anyone have any tips on how to manage this? I wish I could have all my student messages written to me on email.
