date 09/10/2019 author Preston Preuss category Uncategorized comment Leave a comment

DUE MONDAY, 16SEP19. Student Project: Today in the History of Psychology Students, like most of us, like to know about important events that occurred on their birthday; it personalizes those events. Ask students to visit the “Today in the History of Psychology” web page At the web page, they should enter the month and date of their birthday, then choose one of the events to investigate more thoroughly. Why was this an important event? What impact did it have on the field or discipline of psychology? Students can present what they learn in class, as a 5 w’s written paper, or as a verbal show of understanding with the instructor . GO TO THE NAVIGATOR ON THE RIGHT SIDE AND FIND YOUR MONTH, THEN DAY.

Grading Weights:

All tests, quizzes, projects, writing assignments, and daily work are graded with the same amount of weight. The number of points will vary based on assignment type. Example: daily writing #7=4 pts. Unit 3 test= 50 pts.


Late Work/Makeup Policy:

Late work can be a detriment to the success of students in the classroom as many of the assignments are geared toward reinforcing desired learning that takes place in the classroom. 

Martin County West Junior/Senior High School will use the following guidelines regarding late work:

If the assignment is handed in on time, they are eligible to receive 100% of the points available.

If the assignment is handed in one day late, they are eligible to receive a maximum of 80% of the points available.

If the assignment is handed in more than one day late, they are not eligible for any of the points available.

This may be adjusted as deemed appropriate for individual considerations.
