The teacher s in class support
The Teacher’s In-Class Support

  • The teacher’s in-class support is limited in time and frequency for each person because of the class size.

  • The teacher’s support might focus more on lower level students, and on a first come, first service base.

  • Teacher can only support one student each time, others who need teacher’s support at the same time have to wait until the teacher is freed from working with that student.

  • Ask others near you and you might save time and learn more during the time you are waiting. “Students help students” is proved highly effective.

  • Grade “I” policy

    • A student must finish 75%, or more than half of the work, in a class to be qualified to get an “I” for incomplete. Or else, there is an “F.” “F” can not be changed to any other grades.

  • Grade “F” policy

    • If a student cannot get an “I” for incomplete, then get an “F.” If a student gets an “F,” he/she must retake the class, or say, pay the class again to take it again.
