I asked one of my professors about it, my History professor, and she said it would be OK if I handed the paper in a week late. So, I guess I could just concentrate on getting the other two papers done first.Man: Oh, that’s great.Woman: Yeah, only she said she’d have to take a few points off the grade for the paper since it would be late, you know, to be fair to the other students.Man: Oh, that’s a drag."
构 思 讲 解
如果说 this is a good idea ，可以说：
学校毕竟是一个教育的地方，如果学生任务没做好，老师应该做的是给他们机会去学习他们还没有掌握的知识，允许他们通过其他的方式（比如写 paper，做 research，或者做个 presentation）来继续学习相关内容。如果他们最后表现符合要求，那当然可以通过这个来提升整体分数，证明他们花了时间且掌握了。
另外，如果不能让学生通过其他方式来提升分数的话，会影响部分学生的发展。比如学生可能因为 gpa 很低没法按时毕业，或者有可能影响学生申请 grad school，不管是哪种情况，对学生来说都是很困难的，老师应该要给学生机会。
如果说 not a good idea，可以说：
