But better never late...

I recently had my students turn in an assignment that I gave them. They were supposed to present a paper proving something about a person, group of people, or event. I gave them 3 months to write this paper, and even allowed them to turn in a rough draft at 2 months which I would read and grade, so that they could fix whatever was wrong and get a 100% on this assignment.

I received in total 81 of approxiamtely 125 papers, many of which were written the day they were due. I had students come to me that morning asking what the paper was supposed to be about. I had students have their parents check them out of school so that they would have an extra day to write their paper.

Better late than never.

Take care. Stick.
