provide for Marcos would be to listen to music or play a game on his phone or
computer after he has completed the assignment for the day. If the assignment
is lengthy he will only need to complete a certain part of it during that class
period in order to receive his time on his phone or computer.
Negative consequences: Marcos will have a website block put on his computer
as well as the loss of points of extra credit activity opportunities.
