What To Do If You Finish All Classwork

If or when you finish your classwork early, remember that others, including the teacher, are still working and deserve a quiet environment in which they can continue to focus on what they need to do

What To Do If You Are Absent From Class

Sometimes you have to be out of class which means you will have to be responsible for finding out what happened while you were gone, take the time to get the materials and get caught up on your work

What To Do If Your Instructor Is Absent

Treat our guest teacher like a million bucks and do ALL of the work that I leave for you quietly, with great maturity and with immense dignity so that I will return to a note that says, "Your class was amazingly well-behaved! I have never been in a class with such awesome students!"
