Semester is coming to an end
The semester is coming to a close. Our last biweekly grading periods ends this Friday Nov. 22, 2013. All the assignments from Nov. 11 through Nov. 22 are will be due on Friday--Nov. 22. Below is a snapshot of the rest of the semester's calendar.
I have live office hours this Thursday Nov. 21 from 6PM-7PM. We will be discussing any assignments or topics that are left in the semester. Also, I will be answering any questions about "replacing a bad grade" opportunity. Here is the link to access the live office hours session: http://gavirtualschool.adobeconnect.com/spencerev/
Remediation Opportunity: "Replace a Bad Grade"
Want to replace some bad grades?
If a student did not do well on a previous assignment or quiz, I will let them replace up to 4 dropbox assignments, 2 module daily work quizzes, and up to two unit module major tests. However, I will pick the quizzes and tests as I will look at their individual needs based on the concepts you missed the most. Before emailing me, please review the grades in the gradebook and come up with a list of assignments to be replaced. Replace does not mean I will drop the grade. Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org the names of the assignments and possible quizzes/tests, the student would like to replace. Once you email me, I will review your request and contact you via GAVS email and we will have a phone conference or Adobe Connect conference about your performance. Since the last day to turn in this opportunity is Dec. 2, it might be a good idea to work on these over the holiday break.
The last day to turn in is DEC. 2 by 11:59 PM.
