I have a reputation for having strict homework policies. Homework is due when it’s due; if you turn it in late to me, unless we’ve made prior arrangements, you recieve a zero. This is on my syllabus and I’ve explained it several times since the first day of classes: I am 100% confident that no one misunderstands this.
In my Monday class, which is a hybrid, homework is due by 6 p.m. on Sunday evenings. I’ve been known to take work that gets to me by 7 p.m., because I know that, sometimes, something can be sent from a computer on time but not leave the server until a “batch” goes out. Every time – EVERY time – I assign homework, I speak it to the class, I write it out on the board, and I ask them, “WHEN is this due?!” and they all parrot back to me “six-p-m-on-Sunday.” To make it even more clear, because I can never be too careful, I email them the assignments with the due date and time in bold font.
I recieved this email from a Monday student this morning. Please bear in mind that today is TUESDAY…
