This Missing Assignment Log (MALL) is used to keep track of the student's missing work, especially the habitual kids. Kids simply complete this form whenever you're collecting homework and they don't have it to turn in. They complete the top portion and turn it in for your records. They rip or cut off the bottom and need a parent/guardian signature before turning it in. This is a simple way to track so you can avoid potential conflicts such as, "They turned that in." No they didn't or they wouldn't have filled a MALL out! Or how about when the student checks off the box marked, "I was too busy." This is easy to call home about and inquire. It's a simple tool used to put the responsibility back on the student where it belongs. I keep a folder on the wall next to my assignment calendar so the kids can easily get one on their own without interrupting the class.
