Homework is given daily, but in manageable amounts and in a predictable pattern. Students will begin with a new TPRS story featuring key vocabulary each week; all homework, unless otherwise notified, will center around this key vocabulary.
At the end of each unit, there will be different assessments. These may include: writing an essay, reading comprehension, listening, speaking and grammar quizzes.
During the development of each instructional unit students are required to write essays, listen to different sources, read a variety of texts and do small presentations.

OHHS is an effort-based school where we believe all students can learn. We also know that students learn at different rates. Thus, we are implementing a redo policy that recognizes the needs of individual learners.
Assessments (with exception of the Final semester exam)
Key Assignments: Evidence that demonstrates mastery of a standard
Require completion of supporting assignments prior to re-do opportunities for students to show they can meet the standard. o require students to complete re-do of work outside of class time. o limit the number of re-do opportunities for each assignment.
Assign zero grades when students choose not to do key assignments and/or assessments to standard. o have different requirements for late work.
All opportunities for re-do work will come with a deadline as assigned by the teacher.
Any student, who knowingly turns in any work that has been done by someone other than himself or herself, and fraudulently represents it as his/her own, shall be considered to have cheated. Cheating also includes: aiding someone else in cheating, the use or preparation of written, pictorial, electronic or other materials not authorized by the instructor during a test or assignment, the use of testing materials obtained previous to the test date, or plagiarism of any kind. Students found cheating will also be subject to an office referral, which could result in a suspension. As an effort based school, students who have plagiarized/cheated must still demonstrate their learning. Thus, students will be given the opportunity to complete the work. This will fall under the “Late Work Policy” of the teacher where total possible points may be reduced.
The use of online or electronic translators to complete assignments is considered cheating. Any evidence of the use of an online translator calls into question the integrity of the entire assignment and renders its origin as suspect. Students found cheating will also be subject to an office referral, which could result in a suspension. As an effort based school, students who have plagiarized/cheated must still demonstrate their learning. Thus, students will be given the opportunity to complete the work. This will fall under the “Late Work Policy” of the teacher where total possible points may be reduced.
Each TPRS story and study guide will be posted on the class website for download and/or printing. Additional resources will be added as needed.
