Grading and Make-up Work Policy for Missed Rehearsals, Events and Performances (Concerts, Musical, Competitions, etc…)
I will no longer accept make-up work past the five day grace period outlined in the student handbook. I must have an appropriate amount of time to score and record grades accurately. Therefore, all make-up work must be submitted within five days of the student’s return to school or they will not receive credit (a failing grade).
Participation/Daily Grades (Attendance, quizzes, blog posts)
Theater Make-Up Assignment for Absences
1 – Write a two-hundred word, two-person scene.
2 - Perform/record the scene. The recording must be submitted for a grade (acceptable formats - burned onto a CD or emailed to me @ firstname.lastname@example.org).
Dance Make-Up Assignment for Absences
1 - Choreograph one minute of choreography (any genre except hip hop).
2 – Perform/record your choreography. The recording must be submitted for a grade (acceptable formats - burned onto a CD or emailed to me @ email@example.com).
Additional Information About Class Absences
One assignment per absence
*Students will be forgiven one absence.
*Students who are missing from class due to school related activities (field trips, sports, testing, Blood Drive, etc…) will not be required to submit make-up work. This does NOT include ISS. ISS will be treated like an absence.
*Attendance, quizzes, blog posting is worth 25% of the overall grade.
Testing (Scene Work or Movement Practical Projects/Tests, Performances)
Dance and Theater testing day is Friday and will usually occur weekly. Students who miss a test will need to work out a time with the instructor to make it up.
Missed Rehearsals, Events and Performances
One or less hours = one assignment
Two or three hours = two assignments
Four to six hours = four assignments
Six to nine hours = six assignments
*If the student should miss more than nine hours of time the instructor will determine what additional work needs to be submitted to make up the time.
*Testing/Projects/Performances is worth 75% of the overall grade.
