I am 19 years old. I have just completed my freshman year of college.
If I can't keep track of my assignments and handouts, shouldn't that be on my own head?
And even if the teacher IS going to assign a notebook check, why should format be one of the things we are graded on? Why should I have points taken off if my folders show up in alphabetical order instead of the order listed on the rubric (A rubric which, by the way, said NOTHING about having the contents in a specific order)? All of the items were clearly labeled, and there was no question about where things were.
It's just stupid. I started having notebook checks in like middle school, and now that I'm an adult, I should be expected to keep up with a notebook without having it be graded for things like the order it's in.
IT'S JUST DUMB.
