Expectations for Extra Credit Projects- Both 7th and 8th Grade
- The directions for each quarterly extra credit assignment are explicit- so work that shows directions have not been followed, or work that is incomplete receive ZERO credit.
- If work is sloppy or directions were not followed, none of the work will be scored.
- Pay attention to the directions for each assignment.
- If the choice says design/create a poster, that means to get a poster board from the store.
- If the directions say to type up a quiz, you must type on the computer and then print.
- If directions say to use color and graphics, but you have no color or pictures- its a zero.
- PLEASE READ DIRECTIONS CAREFULLY.
- Quarterly extra credit is given out the same week as progress reports and they are due shortly before the end of quarter, which gives students at least 3 weeks to complete.
- These will NOT be accepted late. Period. For any reason. If project is forgotten on the last available day, it is a zero. If you are absent, take pictures of project and email it to me.
- This will serve as a way to show me your project was done on time, before the due date.
- You would bring your project in when you come back to school.
- Only one copy of the assignment will be provided, if the paper gets lost or destroyed, it will be your responsibility to look at the assignment on this website.
***Please keep in mind this is EXTRA credit***
These are not mandatory assignments and because they are not mandatory, guidelines and expectations will be STRICTLY adhered to for credit to be received.
- These assignments have the possibility of raising a student anywhere from 1 to 10 percentage points. That is the equivalent of say a 50 to a 60%.
- If your child is at a 32% in my class, this project will NOT earn him/her a passing grade for the quarter. However, it will increase their grade to help them with their average for the year.
- This is the only extra credit opporutnity that will be consistently provided.
- If you or your child asks what can be done to increase their grade, these projects will be my answer.
- The project will be distributed after progress reports and will be due the week before the end of the quarter- this gives students approximately 3 weeks to complete the project.
