HOMEWORK: Generally homework will require reading a section of the text and taking Power Notes. Power Notes are worth 5 pts. Students earn 5pts by turning in completed notes at the time they are due and collected. Students may earn up to 4pts if the notes are less than 24 hrs late (turned in after collected). Students may earn up to 3pts if the notes are more than 24 hours late.
WEEKLY AGENDA: The first day of the week the students are to write down the entire agenda for the week. This assignment will be collected during that class period, graded, and immediately returned to the student. This is a weekly grade.
DAILY REVIEWS: At the start of each class (Bell Ringer), students will have Daily Review questions which they must answer. If the student has all the correct answers to the questions, the student will earn a stamp indicating that the student earned all 5pts for that day. If the student earned less than 5pts the teacher will write the total points earned in the designated location. If the student earned less than 3 pts that day, the student may write down all the correct answers during the review and earn 3pts the next day for corrected answers. This is a weekly grade.
KEY IDEAS: Key Ideas are generally worth 5 pts. Students earn 5pts by turning in the completed assignment at the time it is due and collected. Students may earn up to 4pts if the assignment is completed and less than 24 hrs late (turned in after collected). Students may earn up to 3pts if the assignment is completed and more than 24 hours late. Once the answers have been reviewed in class, the student may earn up to 2.5 pts by turning in the completed assignment with all correct answers. Pts will be loss to incorrect answers.
ON-LINE SKYWARD ASSIGNMENTS: Formative Assessments and Analysis will be assigned online within the student's skyward account. The assessments/analysis are not timed. The student may open the assignment review it, save it, study, and then reopen it to complete it. The student will only have one attempt at the assignment. The student must complete the assignment on or before the due date. It is recommended that the assignment is attempted before the due date so that the teacher may help with any technical difficulties. Once the due date/time has been reached the grades will post and the teacher is not able to reopen the assignment for individual students.
