A Valentine Update - February 12th

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. 28th zero indicator looks like this...

CHECK YOUR GRADES FIRST. IF YOU DO NOT SEE THE ABOVE IMAGE, YOU DO NOT HAVE A 0 FOR AN ASSIGNMENT.

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!

Student Code of Conduct

Remember that ALL student work is expected to be original.
This applies to students who are taking a course for the first time.
This applies to students who are retaking a course for a second time.
Work should be original EVERY semester.

* If you use ANY other sources, you must cite them. Failure to do so is plagiarism.
* Do not reuse work from a previous class or semester and submit as current work.
* Do not copy and paste from websites without proper MLA citations & works cited page.

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 Practice EOC Tests

Students,
Remember that you have a chance for extra credit in each unit. You can follow the directions on the last content page of each unit in order to take the practice EOC test. The test is a required assignment. Follow the directions for submitting the results to the dropbox.

* A student can retake the same test to improve the grade BEFORE submitting to the dropbox.
* A test must be new and unique for each unit - do not submit the same test to multiple dropboxes.
* A longer test may be taken to earn extra credit points, but the results must include the length of the test, and a comment in the dropbox indicating you took a longer test.
