What's due the rest of the semester after Unit 8?

Students actually have 3 weeks to complete the Final Exam/Project along with an RLC for the Final Exam/Project. Students can finish the Final Exam/Project early if he/she wants. If a student is missing assignments, winter break is a great time for students to complete and submit assignments although late penalties will apply for late assignments.

I will be contacting parents in the next few days to let you know if your student is on pace with the class or missing assignments.

Please speak with your student and make sure they complete all units of the class including the Final Required Live Class, the Final Exam and the Final Project.

There are two parts to the Final Project. There is the project itself (Part 1) and a reflection in English (Part 2).

When completing the exam section -- there is only one attempt. The exam consists of about 5 sections with approximately 30 questions. It is not timed.

The Final Project/Exam together count 20% of a student's final grade. 10% for the Final Project and 10% for the Final Exam.

Some tips for the Final Project!

  • Don't forget that the Final Project has two parts, the project and a reflection (the reflection is in English).
  • Make sure to do both parts!
  • Use a web 2.0 tool. (Google Slides and PowerPoint are not acceptable.)
  • Make sure to have an audio that is separate from your narrative. (Don't read your narrative for your audio.)
  • Make sure to have a Works Cited for pictures even if the pictures are your own or from the Web 2.0 tool.
  • Make sure you have vocabulary and grammar from each unit!
  • Write good sentences, don't make lists of vocabulary words.
  • Proofread your project before submitting.
  • Make sure to do both your Final exam (10% of your final grade) and Final Project (10% of your final grade) .
