CORRECTION DIRECTIONS: On a separate piece of paper, write the complete question and complete correct answer.  Show your work if necessary.  Staple this sheet of paper to the original assignment and turn in to the yellow basket.  Half-credit will be added for every correct correction.  Anything that is graded may be corrected and turned in the NEXT DAY.  Spelling tests are the exception because students already have two chances. CORRECTIONS ARE DOUBLE-FOLD! STUDENTS HAVE TO UNDERSTAND HOW THEY ANSWERED INCORRECTLY AND THEY GET POINTS ADDED TO THEIR GRADE!! CORRECTIONS CAN REALLY HELP STUDENTS!
