Parkman ELA 7
Multiple Choice Summative
The grades for the multiple choice summative taken this week can be found in PowerSchool, and students will receive their grades in class on Monday. Students who made 59 or below on the multiple choice summative are eligible for a redo. Those who wish to redo the summative MUST come in to me during Zero Block on October 13 (Wednesday) OR October 14 (Thursday) to analyze their original summative. They can also come in both days if needed. Attending Zero Block to analyze the summative is a requirement for completing a redo. Zero Block begins at 7:30, and students should make arrangements to be at school at that time in order to have enough time to work on their analysis. Students who are bus riders are strongly recommended to make arrangements to be dropped off via car so that they do not miss being able to redo because of a late bus.
Unit I Author Study Project II
On Monday, each student will present a book talk, which is the second part of the author study project. We have worked on parts of this for several weeks and spent most of Thursday and all of Friday working on the project. All students should have to do this weekend is practice their presentations. The book talk counts as a summative grade and will be scored with the same rubric used on the first presentation. Students should have two copies of this rubric in their binders.
