Students will be graded on Classroom Work/Homework which will include book assignments,
group assignments, bell work, teamwork, and daily participation.
Multiple assessment opportunities will be provided for students to show what they understand
and how they can use what they learn.
We will use rubrics to provide feedback on formative performances.
Assessments will meet rigorous design with clear expectations.
We will ensure students understand how their grade is determined.
There will be regular communication between student and teacher regarding their achievement.
Students will be challenged to think critically by comprehending, applying, analyzing,
synthesizing and evaluating the content in the courses.
If a student has an excused absent, they will have as many days as they were absent to make up
the work that they missed.
If a student is unexcused, they will receive a zero for work missed. If they make up that work,
they will receive 50% of the assignment grade, and will get as many days as they missed to
make up the work.
Late work for students who are in attendance must be turned in by the end of the unit with a
one letter grade penalty.
