This saves me SO MUCH WORK in my class when it comes to the dreaded "missing work."
This sheets allows students to be accountable for thier missed work AND will let the teacher know when they turn something in late.
Students fill out the top portion of this sheet whenever they don't complete an assignment. You, as the teacher, can put that zero in the grade book with confidence.
(I suggest then having a binder that these forms go into for easy student access if they opt to make up the work in the future...)
If students make up their work, they get the bottom half of their Missing Work Log, fill it out and attach to their work. Instant receipt of late work.
You know, the student knows, everyone knows the work was late and when it was thus turned in.
This worksheet is built on a "10% deduction each day late" rule.
