50% Instead of Zero?

I know there is a lot of debate on this topic, but I was wondering what some of your thoughts were on the idea of putting a 50% in for missing assignments instead of a zero.

Thank you for the responses! I used to have some freedom of what I taught and how I taught it as long as I taught the standards. This year I have little to no freedom and the unit plans I've been...

It's only the first week

Thank you!

I'm in the South West, so I do feel hesitant every time I comment on why what they're saying is wrong, but it's definitely not the South you're talking about. I couldn't even imagine how scary it'd...

I really hope it's just their immaturity and that they grow out of it. I try to educate them and stop the comments, but it seems so ingrained in their minds. Students are sexist, racist, and it's all...
