HOMEWORK POLICY

                        ELL homework is given to all 1st-year and 2nd-year students who come to the ELL room for their lessons. At the end of each class, students record their homework        assignments in their ELL Binder on the special hot (bright) pink page, the top page of their ELL Binder.

* What comes first: ELL homework or classroom homework?
                - Generally, for the 1st year ELL students, ELL homework comes first    and classroom teachers agree with it.However,students should try to complete as much of their MATH homework as possible.

* What to do if you left your binder at school?
                - You need to do your best in completing the parts of the assignment that are not contained in the Binder, for example, completing the pages from the Explode the Code book or reading the next chapter/pages from the book you are currently assigned, or practicing your spelling words on a piece of paper. If all your assignments are in your binder, please bring a note from your parents, explaing that you did your best in preparing for the class.


* What to do if you don't know how to complete an assignment?
- You will need to demonstrate that you have done your best in trying to complete the task. For example, you don't know some    words in the Explode the Code book - write a question mark next to this word/picture; you do not know how to answer a question for the reading chapter - at least start your answer using the words from the question (echoing the question).


                * What to do if you were not able to complete your homework on time?
- Please bring a note from your parents.
