3) Call or text over the phone any of the 5 classmates contacts established at the beginning of the school year.
4) Check the school webmail. Mr. Pagani will also send the home learning assignment through the school webmail.
5) Finally, check the grades online. The same day the assignment is given, Mr. Pagani opens it as a pending assignment in the gradebook.
6) When all of those options above fail, or may be Mr. Pagani was absent and not able to access the Dadeschools server to update his webpage or send you the e-mail, then check this webpage (SPagani.weebly.com). This is an alternative that does not use the school servers. This webpage will be updated intermittently and should not be used in a daily manner.
7) The last option would be to access www.Edmodo.com. This option will work only if you are already registered into the Edmodo class of Mr. Pagani.
In order to properly identify, evaluate, and score each piece of work you turn in, always remember to include the date the assignment is due (not the date you completed it), your name, period number, and the corresponding title of the home learning assignment exactly as you find it in this page. This will help you to easily identify the respective grades online.

All graphs, pictures, diagrams, etc. must be properly labeled and cited in the paper. The number of pages should be enough to allow you to comply with all the requirements for that paper.
Direct copy and paste from the web is a violation of copyright rules and it is unacceptable. Direct print outs from the web are also unacceptable. A research paper based on the information obtained from just one source is also unacceptable. You should browse the web and write the paper from a considerable variety of reliable scientific and educational resources.
This paper will have a value of six grades. There will be no excuses to not turn it in. This paper will help you push up your grades, your knowledge, and your research skills.
