Jan. 14th Due Date News

Mrs. Gardner - GAVS 9th Grade English

Course Updates

After each due date, I will send a course update newsletter (what you are reading now) to let you know I have put in 0s for missing work. When you see a 0, be sure to look in the gradebook to see when that assignment was due. Students have 3 school days (5 days total) to submit work. Please note that while I've put in 0s, I may still be grading work that was submitted on time.

The Jan. 14th zero indicator looks like this...

The GAVS late work policy looks like this...

Turn in all work, even if it is for a 30% deduction. It is always better to have a reduced percentage, compared to a ZERO. TURN IN WORK!

Mrs. Gardner's Welcome Newsletter

If you have not yet read through this entire newsletter, please do so as soon as possible. It contains lots of important information.

Mrs. Gardner's Welcome Session

This is my welcome session. Please be sure that you listen. Many courses use the same template for the welcome meeting, but I add in items unique to our English class.

9th Grade Milestone/EOCT Practice Tests

These appear at the end of each unit and are to encourage practice for the Milestones test. Students must submit a screenshot to the dropbox of the test score they receive. However, students CAN retake the practice test to get a higher grade BEFORE submitting. The scoring guide I use is below. Again, this is to encourage practice, not to penalize for wrong answers.

Just a few reminders:
1. Take a separate test for each unit - do not reuse screenshots
2. Be sure your screenshot shows your name, score, and length of test
3. Focus on the practice
4. These dropbox items count as MAJOR GRADES. Be sure to turn them in, even if they are late.
