In order to help my students turn in their homework on time, I keep a working portfolio for each student. Once a week, they update their homework and classwork assignment sheets. A running list of all the past homework assignments along with the dates is kept on the front board. Students update their assignment sheet and check it off if it has been completed and turned in. When I return the assignment to the student, they record the number of points they received. This puts the responsibility back on the student and eliminates the grade anxiety at the end of the quarter.
