I don’t often have kids “turn in” assignments. For me, it’s inconvenient as kids cannot edit the document. When you see something marked “late,” a simple investigation (or email to me) can identify if it’s late or not. Kids hate the “late” designations on their folders, but I can’t do anything to add/remove those dates. Same goes for notes kids take, too. I should make it an “announcement,” but sometimes mistakenly make it an “assignment.” I’ll try to avoid that, but occasionally, it will show up incorrectly.
Basically, in social studies, that “late” tag means very little.
