Curriculum Unit Follow Up
Secondly, I wanted to make sure that all understand my grading policy and Friday school policies. See the bullet points below:
- Daily Grades count 1X in the Skyward
- Quizzes count 2X
- Papers/Projects count 3X
- Late work: If an assignment is 3 or more days late, I will assign Friday School for the student. You will receive a notification. If it is assigned after Wednesday, school will assigned the following week. If the assignment is turned in before Friday school happens, they will not need to attend.
Next, let's revisit homework. Please see the Membean expectations and book page challenge below. The vast majority of all other homework will be centered around work not completed in class or major papers or projects. I do provide class time for papers and projects, but the students will need to work on these some at home. Please know that the major assignments are assigned with at least 1-3 weeks to complete them.
Finally, would you like to see what we do on a daily or weekly basis? Google Classroom has now added a new parent summary feature. YEAH!! Please be looking for an invitation from Salena Smith, CMS librarian, to join Google Classroom daily or weekly summaries. Please say yes and see what wonderful things are going on in our ELA class.
