Homework Policy

Homework will mainly be from the textbook and will consist of reading, skills review questions, document-based questions, critical thinking problems, and creative writing. You will also be expected to review your Study Guide and notes for each chapter. Additional homework will be assigned as needed.

Regularly assigned homework will be graded throughout the week and appear as an average on Rediker. 
All assignments need to be completed to a satisfactory degree. Per the Family Handbook, homework will be given a 10% reduction of points each day that it is late. Homework more than 3 days late will receive a grade of 0. Failure to complete assigned work by the date that it is due, including long-term projects and having tests/quizzes signed, will result in the following infraction procedure:
