ASKING FOR AN EXTENSION
The student is seeking extra time for an assignment.
• The student may need to write a letter.
• The student has had plenty of time to prepare the work and should not really need two more weeks.
• Provide some idea about where he/she may get hold of the books.
• Offer advice about the “Learning Assistance Centre” on the campus which helps students with essay writing.
After some resistance, agree to an extension of one week.
