Please read: Essay Turnin and Late Acceptance Policy
* Essays are due at the beginning of class when they are due. Papers turned in later than your assigned period will be considered late.
*The late penalty for papers is (or 10 points per day late)–translating to approximately a letter grade.
*I will not print out papers for students or accept papers via email, on CD, pin drive, etc. No exceptions.
*Proper MLA format must be used. If it is not, the paper will be returned to you for corrections and accepted late.
*Papers may be handwritten as long as they are formatted properly and double spaced.
*Word count is required on all essays.

These policies are the result of consistent problems with timeliness, formatting, and responsibility and my desire to be consistent and fair to all students.

College Recommendations
If you are in need of a college recommendation, please be sure that you have completed the survey prior to asking. (I have a packet for students to fill out prior to asking for a recommendation.)
*All envelopes for mailed recommendations must be stamped and addressed.
*Two weeks notice is required!! Please, no last minute requests!

When asking any teacher for a recommendation, consider strongly what you believe that teacher might say about you, your performance/attitude in the class, etc. Not every teacher is the most appropriate to ask.
