Does anyone find this aggravating/ridiculous/some other adjective? School started on Sept 2nd. It is now October 11th. In that one month and one week, my child development class has had 5 intensive projects. This class is an elective course and a regular class. Everyday in class we do our ATB (at the bell) of at least 5 sentences, then copy at least 3 sheets of notes or we go over normally 3-6 worksheets. Then we read. This teacher likes to nitpick my projects and tests. One test she took 5 points off because I answered in bullet form instead of sentences. (Trust me, there wasn't much to write about the topics, so I listed them and a characteristic). Okay, I can kinda see why. Our last project was a brochure on a birth defect. My format was probably different from my computer to the school computer, but I still did the project to hand it in and get over with it. 5 points of because there was an "extra" space in which I didn't put a picture. She did not give us a rubric, just told us to make a brochure on a birth defect and when it was due. That was it! Here's where my problem is, since I am still on partial homebound all my work I do at home has to be handed in through my tutor. My tutor printed and handed in the brochure, I had no control over how it came out, and yes the program I had at home was filled with information. It just frustrates me. 5 projects already in an elective class, and I JUST got one for my other 3 core classes. It seems excessive to me, but again, I'm new to high school. Am I wrong or right?
