What can my student do to improve his/her grade?
1) Turn in any missing work, even if it is incomplete or imperfect!Often, students shove papers into their backpacks or binders, completely forgetting to give them to their teacher. Set a time once a week for binder cleaning. Put all papers which need to be returned into a separate section or folder and send it back to school.2) Any time a student is unhappy with his/her grade, especially on a test, he/she simply needs to come talk to me and ask for the opportunity to re-take it. I actively encourage my students to show me what they know and can do, especially if they didn't get it right the first time.Back to Top
