Course Description: During the course of the year we will give students adequate time to work on their homework and any missed class work, as well as make up tests, study, and keep organized. Students will be required to have a notebook/binder check once a week and an agenda check daily.
Students earn their own grades. They will be graded in 3 main areas:
Agenda MUST be filled out daily for every class. If a student does not have homework, they MUST STILL fill their agenda out with the day's activity (i.e. took a test on cell division, or annotated article). Agenda's are checked and initialied daily and graded on Thursday's or Friday's of every week.
Every 3 Weeks Grade Check: 40%
Students will be given a grade check form to fill out and get signed by their teachers AND parents for full credit. Students will be given a week to complete this assignment.
Sometimes students do not have any work on them to complete. They must come prepared to class with homework, classwork, and/or study materials. Students will have an opportunity to earn 5 points per class period every week under this category. District policy in regards to attendance and make-up work will be followed.
