Product Description
No Excuses Required Homework and Classwork Passes
This product is a homework pass and a classwork pass.

I give students a free homework pass at the start of each semester. A student can use the pass on basic homework assignments, but not assignments that are part of bigger projects such as term papers or presentations. If the pass has not been used by the end of the semester, the student may turn it in and drop his or her lowest homework grade.

A classwork pass is also included. The classwork pass allows students to sit out one classroom activity or assignment. For example, a student can use the pass rather than participate in a discussion on the short story "To Build a Fire". Reasons include that he or she: hasn't done necessary preparation, is sick, is tired, is upset, is suffering the illness or loss of a loved one, or is experiencing friend boyfriend/girlfriend drama. I listen to students when they want to share why they are choosing not to participate, but I don't pry. The pass gives students an out with dignity.

Each pass asks for name of student, name of assignment and date.

Note: It's important to set guidelines with the students when handing out the passes. I have guidelines for using the passes in writing in the syllabus and require students and parents to sign that they've read the syllabus. I also review guidelines every time a student turns in a pass. I require that students using the classwork pass stay awake and refrain from engaging in inappropriate behaviors (cell phone use and talking to others), but I allow them to read, write, or study on whatever they want.
