If you have a smartphone, please go into the app store (see links below) and install the Google Classroom app. This will allow you to get Classroom notifications which will help you be more successful in this class.
The general policy for late submissions is that 5% of your achieved mark will be deducted per day to a maximum of 15% for grades 9-10 and a maximum of 25% for grades 11-12 (DSBN policy). There may be exceptions to this, depending on the specific circumstances.
If assignments are posted online and can be done from home, absence due to a school activity does not extend the deadline.
If the situation warrants that an assignment can no longer be handed in, the mark will be a zero beyond that.
(You will only be given a reasonable amount of time to submit a late assignment. Don’t expect to be handing in assignments two or three weeks after they are due!)
Each item will be marked out of four. Spelling and grammar mistakes will result in lost marks. If in doubt, get a classmate to review your work before the deadline.
Each response must be written in a way that it makes sense in its own context, i.e., as a standalone paragraph (or paragraphs) placed in a separate report away from the requirements. You will NOT be able to get away with short replies in this report!
If I add comments, please do not delete them. If necessary, duplicate the commented section and strike out the original section as shown in this example:
original part new part
To receive full marks, be sure you address the following for each response:
the context to the subject area is clear
the response demonstrates a clear understanding of the concept(s)
the terminology is appropriate to the subject and skill level (grade, E vs M, etc.)

Create a Google Presentation slideshow similar to the one found here.
In your slideshow, profile an artist or photographer whose work you find inspirational. Include a minimum of ten pieces of work, if possible, and be prepared to share your research on the artist and your thoughts and research on each of the pieces, including why you chose that piece, what’s unique and/or inspirational about it, and any history you feel is relevant.
Name your presentation “Full Name Course Code Artist Profile – Name of Artist“, and submit it in Google Classroom.

For marking, consider:
