Homework and Make-up Policy
Students and Parents:
I feel very strongly that regular assignments are an essential part of the language
learning process. I would like you to be aware of my general policy regarding homework
and makeup work so that you may guide your student’s efforts to learn the language.
Please read the following statements carefully.
1. There will be an assignment almost every night. Assignments may include reading, written exercises,
or study of a specific material. When there is no specific assignment, it is advisable to spend some
time on vocabulary or grammar review.
2. Written homework must be complete and submitted on the due date to receive full credit.
3. Homework must be done neatly and include the student’s name, date and the page and exercises if
4. It is the student’s responsibility to obtain assignments missed. Homework will be posted on the
5. It is advisable for students to keep all corrected homework, quizzes and test papers as a resource for
unit and final exams.
6. Students should try their best in every assignment. If the student does not understand the assignment
he or she should ask for another explanation.
1. If you missed just one day of class you will need to show me the missed homework/classwork the day
after you return. If there is a quiz or a test scheduled for the day of your return you may choose to
make it up a day or two later.
2. If you are absent two or more days you will need to make up all work as soon as possible (within the
5-day guideline). So please see me immediately upon your return to our class to schedule a time to make
up the work!
3. Long term assignments are due on the original day.
