This is a microsoft word .doc that you can edit to fit your particular consequences. This type of binder is not my idea, but I created this page to fit my own needs.
I have a binder near the turn in tray (but not too close or else it causes a traffic jam with those who are turning their work in). Inside it, I have A-Z dividers, and each student creates one of the pages at the beginning of each grading period.
It HAS helped with parents and students who claim to have turned in work, but really haven't. I have proof that they didn't do their work and writing the reason why helps them see that it was probably easier to just do it in the first place! :)
