Deadlines, no good, need to be extended. You expect too much of us we are just normal 12th grade English students that have lives outside of school. Reconsider or else Mrs. Caldwell.

I dont have a problem with deadlines...but it would be great if we could have some class time to work on our body paragraphs.

GigiR1 said...

I must say I agree with Hannon. It would be a huge help if we could possibly have some more time in class to work on our papers. Also, deadlines are good because they force you to do your work. Regardless if they are extended, most people will still wait till the night before.

I hate deadlines, but then again when it comes down to the wire for something to be due, the pressure makes me work harder.

KatherineK5 said...

I agree with Hannon! I think it would be really helpful if we had class time to work on our rough drafts. It will help people not wait until until Wednesday night to start their papers.

I'm okay with most of the deadlines. Like I definitely think you gave us plenty of time to learn those lines from our group plays. Most of the time if everyone is stressed out you do push the deadlines back. So keep up the good work!

Leeb3 said...

I agree with Elliot. I think we need to extend these deadlines. We should also be given a lot of class time to work on upcoming things for our projects.

Deadlines are good I just think having the rough draft due on thursday is a little too soon.

Mrs. Caldwell I sent you my email address twice and I have not received anything about the wikipedia stuff. My email is walkerdeb682@hotmail.com

SamM5 said...

i agree with katherine and hannon about the class time but I can speak for myself and others in saying that I am not anywhere near ready for the rough draft on thursday and seeing as how weird this week has been, we would all appreciate an extension to friday or monday. I think that its hard to concentrate on both the play and the RSP + all of our other difficult classes. Senior english is taking over my life! PLEASE consider our suggestions on the rough draft. Gracias

I am in full agreement with Hannon and Katherine. Class time to work on the rough drafts is a great idea. Sam..wow! That's great, I agree. Didn't you, Mrs Caldwell, say specifically last week that you will not change the due date for the rough draft....or was I just hearing things?

DorieF5 said...

okay so basically here it is straight out, its not that the deadlines are too early.. for the people that don't wanna say it I will, its that we are not working on our papers and we think that we should get an extention because we haven't even started looking at our papers, or at least for me that is. I mean yah I will get it done, but it's definately going to be a ROUGH!! draft... so yah, that's basically how it is, it's not that it is too soon or anything, it's that no one is doing the work but some of us really don't have time... but most of us do and just don't use it wisely! so yah... even if you do extend them that only means people will have one more night to wait to stay up that night to do it! have a good day and i'll see you tomorrow b-cal!

As usual i do have one problem right now. Suprisingly its not about the wikispace. I actually am loving it. Its just that THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS A BAD RUN DMC SONG!

MrsC said...

Thank you, Dorie. Finally someone speaks the truth. You have two class days to work. You have two nights to work. Many of you would not take that much time if I did extend it. Unfortunately, our time is running out and extensions (regardless of basketball success) are not realistic.

charlotteg3 said...

I don't mind deadlines, because everything has to be turned in sometime and I will probably spend the same amount of time on it, it does not matter when it is due.

philipr5 said...

We have had a lot to do lately and i think an extension on the deadlines would be great but hopefully i will end up getting all of my stuff done on time.

jordanl5 said...

I think that the class time we are going to get is a great idea, but I also think extending the deadlines would be very nice. With all that is going on in other classes, extensions would make this semester a little easier.

w00t n00bz! said...

Mrs. Caldwell, you can't just expect us to do work or something. I mean, we're seniors!

Addie said...

The class time will defenitley help with the huge deadlines coming up, but it is still a lot of stuff due at a time i really don't want to do it. sorry, i know you've heard all of this already.

BrandonW1 said...

Umm, is there any way we can push these due dates back a few days, or weeks?
