Grading:
Grading for AP will be on a point system. Points are totaled to determine the grade for each grading period. The scale is
listed below. It is advised that students NOT THROW ANYTHING AWAY. Inadequate and poor planning on the student’s
part does not constitute an emergency on the teacher’s part. In short, if you see you are behind and NEED an “A”, plan
better and study harder.
100-90% = A
89-80% = B
79-70 % = C
69-60% = D
59% – Below = F
Late Work:
I will accept late work once. I will give you feedback on late work, but the highest grade you will receive will be a C.
Handing in work late deprives you of critical feedback from the class.
Plagiarism
Plagiarism can involve not only written work but also artwork. In short, your work is your property and visa versa.
Plagiarism is a form of cheating. Any time a student uses someone else's work and does not give that person credit, it is
plagiarism. Anyone who plagiarizes will receive an “F” on the assignment
