Section A: Excused Absences/Make-up Participation Points

Using the Attendance and Flexibility Consideration Rubric, I have determined that:excused absences/make-up participation points are not applicable in the course.
The maximum number of excused absences without penalty permitted:
Additional details or exceptions to allotment:
Plan for make-up participation points, if applicable (e.g. .submit additional blog posts on Canvas):
Please explain why absences beyond the number allowed in the syllabus is not a reasonable accommodation.

Section B: Deadline Extensions for Assignments

Important Notice to Students: The consequences outlined for the class for missing the deadline applies to the adjusted deadlines for the student using this accommodation.
Using the Deadline Extensions Consideration Rubric, I have determined that:deadline extensions is not a reasonable accommodations. Additional information is required.
Applicable assignments (check all that apply):
List any assignments that are not approved for deadline extensions
If applicable, please detail the notification plan for requesting assignment extensions.
Please explain why deadline extensions beyond the number allowed in the syllabus is not a reasonable accommodation.Students must choose 5 classes and post reading reactions at 4p the day prior to class. I have adjusted the deadline for students who indicated an accommodation to be anytime before class, thereby extending the deadline. However, if the reading summary is posted after class (and we already discussed the material), the assignment no longer makes sense. Students do not need to post every class, but they do need to make sure they have organized themselves for five over the course of the quarter (5 in which they are not the "class lead"). Extensions for "class lead" assignments (2 per quarter) also do not quite make sense, as they are group assignments in which students, as a group, present summaries of the readings due in class that day to the rest of the class. A deadline extension would not make sense in this case. The only time a deadline extension would be fine, as long as discussed prior, is for the final paper. My deadline extension policy for the final paper is in the syllabus as "On lateness: -2 points per day unless otherwise discussed with instructor 48hrs prior to deadline or in the case of emergency."

Section C: Make-up Quizzes/Exams

I have determined that administering a make-up quiz/exam is:a reasonable accommodation. Additional information required.

Specify the number of business days:The midterm will be a take-home via canvas taken at anytime on Friday, Feb 18th. Student can discuss with me any necessary extensions needed, though my preference would be to have them take the exam by the end of Monday to discuss exam results in class Tuesday.
