Clip to ScrapBook #3

So I have a set of folders in my class where students may pick up missed work. They have to "Ask three, then me" they need to ask three fellow students about what they missed and then they can come to me. The students need to sign the bottom of the page to say they "helped" If the student comes to me with 3 signatures all four of them need to come to me to see what they were supposed to know. This has cut way back on the ridiculous questions, and the skipping of asking others. My students have a mark in grade book with the absence noted. If they do not turn the work in. They get a missing mark added. They have 5 days to turn in the assignment. I send a syllabus home at the beginning of the year outlining this policy. I make parents sign that they understand and I have a poster up with it outlined. This has cut down on the parent complaints. The students who choose to fail do so, but it is understood it is their behavior that got them there. I also have filmed lessons and posted them on my class website. This way they can watch it. I do not have to reteach everything. If I know it is a complicated lesson, as I know Physics would be, I would make it a practice to film a lesson or example of the activity. You may find this helps the students who wish to study also.
Good Luck!
