50% of the class is failing.
There have been 20 assignments whose sole purpose is to raise their grade - construction packets, trig packets, write me about your future plans, course review packets over break - you name it.
Normally 20% of the class will do the work - and that 20% is in the 50% that is already passing the class.
The last "extra credit" I gave I told them was mandatory. It can raise their grade 4 points or drop it 3. How many do you think I got? Same as always.
Somewhere it became MY problem to pass them not their problem to earn a decent grade.
Document, document, document - I am not passing them for the sake of have a low failure rate.
