     BE AWARE:  There are no late homework assignments accepted in Mrs. Scholtz's English classes. Class is dependent on students having the work finished for activities during the class period.  Additionally, I have found that allowing late assignments contributes to student's procrastination and that constant deductions for late work are harmful to students' overall averages.
     To mitigate the damages of forgotten homework, at the end of the nine weeks,  I will drop a minimum of the two lowest daily grades. With this policy, students who have two or three mistakes will not face adverse consequences.
    Students may do one extra credit test per nine weeks to mitigate a poor test grade.

    Major Works Data Sheet
    You will create a MWDS for ALL major works in AP and Pre-AP English.  It will count as two daily grades (primarily completion) in the class. 
    The purpose of the major works data sheet is not only to assist you in analysis and review of the work  but also to provide a study guide for the literature and composition free-response question on the AP exam your senior year.
