Section A: Excused Absences/Make-up Participation Points

Using the Attendance and Flexibility Consideration Rubric, I have determined that:absences beyond the number allowed in the syllabus is not a reasonable accommodation. Additional information is required.
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.The majority of learning for the discussion section happens through interaction in the class with the instructor and with peers; this interaction is direct, extensive, organic, and in-the-moment, and so is very difficult to replicate with an alternative assignment. In my experience, students need the interaction of discussion section to make sense of the class sources (lecture, readings), and so this piece is fundamental to learning in the class. While it is recognized that absences may be unavoidable, missing discussion will definitely contribute to loss of learning opportunities, and therefore should be minimized to the extent possible.

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:students with a disability may have deadline extensions. Additional information is required.
Applicable assignments (check all that apply):papers
List any assignments that are not approved for deadline extensionsBecause Perusall annotations can happen any time during the week, I think the expectation will generally be that these should be aimed to happen on time, generally and to the extent possible..

Please specify the expectations for deadline extensions.

Assignment Type(s)Response papers, final paper
Timeframe for deadline extension (select one):The assignment(s) will be due within a certain number of business days of the original due date. Additional information is required.
Specify the number of business days: Typically 2-3 days. Also, because of workload constraints on when I can grade them and also because of the purpose these papers serve pedagogically, any papers that are turned in after the original deadline cannot be open to the revise-and-resubmit option (this is true for all students)
Specify the revised due date:
 
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.
