- What does the asterisk mean in Skyward?
a. It means I have not yet entered grades for that assignment.
2. What should I do if I know that I did an assignment, but it is a “0” in the grade book?
a. First, email Mrs. Fry to ask if there are assignments with no name on them. Most cases of missing work are because the student forgets to write their name on it. It will remain a “0” until you retrieve your assignment, write your name on it, and turn it back in. If your assignment is not a "no name" assignment, check your own bags. If all of those options fail, come see me and we will figure out a solution for that particular assignment.
3. I have an excused absence, what is the best way to learn what I missed?
a. First, check the website blog. Second, send me an email to receive assignments and specific instructions. Email is the best way to learn what you missed because I am able to open up my calendar and give you thorough instructions. Please, do NOT ask what you missed right before class is about to start; that is often a time in which I am thinking about the lesson at hand and am not fully able to address your query.
4.What format should I use for typed assignments?
a. MLA!! From now until the end of high school, you will be expected to know and use MLA formatting for all typed assignments unless otherwise specified. The most accurate and up-to-date MLA formatting can be found at http://owl.english.purdue.edu/owl/resource/747/01/
5.Do you accept late work for major assignments? (i.e. papers, projects, etc.)
a. No. You should arrange to turn in your assignment the day before you know you are going to be absent.
6.When will my reading/vocabulary quiz be returned to me?
a. I do not return reading quizzes after they have been graded. However, you may arrange to see any of your quizzes for the current semester. I am happy to discuss questions and answers.
7.How long do I have to make up a quiz?
a. Due to my after-school activities schedule, makeups need to occur either during B-lunch for small quizzes or immediately after school in Portable 5. I am unable to meet before school starts or during A-lunch. You need to arrange the timing with Mrs. Fry.
