Missing due dates is a problem that every student faces sooner or later. Different teachers handle it in different ways. Obviously, it’s really important to be aware of an instructor’s late work policy; you can often find it in the course syllabus. This will help you make decisions about how you should prioritize your efforts.
My policy is that I do not deduct any points or credit for work turned in late. It doesn’t matter how late it’s turned in; it still receives full credit.
Hey everybody! Today I’m going to talk to you about a skill we all need to be good at, which is PERSUASION. Basically, that means being able to get what you want. But before we get started, I want to explain the difference between persuasion and manipulation. Persuasion is convincing others to help you get what you want using evidence, logical reasoning, and emotional appeal. Manipulation is convincing others to help you get what you want through deception or intimidation.
During the past year and a half of instruction during a global pandemic, there has been lots of discussion about “learning loss,” and to what extent (or even if) we should be worried about it. However, I have seen less about what our expectations of students ought to be, or how we should form those expectations. And that is something that concerns me, especially given that in addition to changes in students’ instructional gains due to the pandemic, I will also be teaching a completely different course load this year, including two courses I’ve never taught before. If I go into these courses with misplaced expectations, I’m setting not only myself up for failure, but my students as well.
