​​When a student tries but fails to learn, that's understandable; let's reteach, relearn, and give it another try for a better grade. When a legitimate, excused absence causes a person to fall behind, same thing. But there is no excuse for late work. That's especially true when allocated time during classes gets used to socialize and daydream.  

 ​     It’s simple: grades measure "real world" mastered skills. Employers say two skills essential to full-time employment are punctuality and willingness to learn. Academic skills you can sell and use forever; that stupid joke the class clown foisted on you will seem juvenile when your brain matures. Therefore: 

  •        If you don't want adults messing in your business, take care of your business promptly; 
  •        Meet deadlines with the best you can muster;  
  •        Use your time intelligently.

 S​​​o, the nutshell version of Mr. Lewis’s grading policy is: Do the work the best you know how the ​​first time. Meet deadlines. Ask questions, collaborate and refine your skills as needed. Then, enjoy sweeter grades and ripened skills that will make future academic learning simpler -- these are no brainers​ with great brain benefits.
