Students will be assessed using points from the following categories:
Homework & Activities –70%
Tests, Quizzes and Projects-30%
Homework will occur almost daily and will be evaluated the following day. Tests will occur at the end of each chapter and may contain short answer, multiple choice, essay and/or open response questions. In each chapter there will be one or two quizzes, which may or may not be announced. Activities and projects will be evaluated using a guide given to the student at the beginning of the assignment.
Helpful Hints:Students are encouraged to actively participate in all class discussions by making appropriate comments in appropriate ways; asking questions by raising hands; putting work on the board when asked; participating in group work as a contributing member; and answering questions when called upon.
To Discuss Your Child’s Progress:Please call the school and leave a message or make an appointment for a conference to insure that instructional time is uninterrupted. I will return your call or schedule a conference either after school hours or during planning time. I can also be reached via E-mail.
