Some have emailed me regarding the posting of assignments in Progress Book. Having a plethora of assignments to read and of which to verify the completion, I ask for continued patience. Knowing that there would be a period of waiting for my students after their submission of CLA's three through seventeen, I posted an announcement (i.e. #7) on my webpage on Sunday, May 3.
To reiterate the information in Announcement #7, I successfully received all CLA's that were completed by the first deadline of May 1, i.e. CLA's three through seventeen. Thus, any student who submitted those CLA's by the May 1 deadline can rest assured that their work was received. The only students whom I contacted were the ones whose CLA's could not be opened electronically, and those students diligently and commendably complied by trying another means, e.g. a different type of email attachment. I only had to contact a few students regarding said occurrence, and all issues were rectified, thus allowing me to receive CLA's successfully after the second attempts were made.
Students are reminded that CLA's eighteen, nineteen, twenty, twenty-one, twenty-two, and twenty-three are due by May 15. Some students have already completed and sent them to me, thus remaining diligent and productive in completing CLA's during the week when they are assigned. I appreciate that effort, for it allows me to read and verify CLA's progressively rather than having all of them sent to me on the actual deadline. Students are encouraged to avoid procrastination and complete work during the week when it is assigned.
I will be entering completed CLA's into Progress Book at five points each; thus, a total of 105 points will accrue regarding the fourth quarter.
Regarding students' borrowed copies of The Grapes of Wrath, those items may be placed in one of the bins but NOT the "pick-up only" bin in front of T-VHS. For students who plan to submit their work in paper form, they are reminded NOT to place CLA's eighteen through twenty-three in the "pick-up only" bin but should place their completed work in one of the other bins. Moreover, I will continue to place students' three-ring binders in the "pick-up only" bin upon request.
