We will use the SmartBoard daily to enhance lessons. The internet research and computer simulations will also be used to enrich and motivate students during most of our units.
Students’ work will be graded using a point system. Homework is typically worth 5 - 20 points, quizzes are typically worth 20 - 40 points and tests are usually 50 - 100 points. The point value is determined based on the importance and time spent on each topic. Students will be made aware of the points possible on quizzes and tests prior to the quiz or test.
Since helping your child learn and be responsible is the major purpose of homework, any work turned in one day late will receive 50% credit. Homework turned in more than one day late will receive a zero. However, late assignments are still expected to be completed.
Any student who is absent must see the teacher to find out what work was missed and to schedule a time to take any missed tests. The due date for make-up work will correspond to the number of days absent. It is the student’s responsibility to find out what work was missed and to complete the work within the specified time. The student is responsible for turning in the missed work without being asked for it.
Disruptive behavior negatively affects the learning environment of other students in the classroom and will not be tolerated.
