    Materials/Supplies:

    1. Large (1 ½ or 2 inch) three ring binder, paper and 5 pocket dividers.  Students are provided with an outline explaining how notebooks should be maintained.

    Grading:

    1. TESTS, QUIZZES & PROJECTS:    Unit tests will be given at the end of every chapter.  Quizzes, both announced and unannounced will be given several times within the unit.  Projects will be assigned periodically as an alternative or supplemental form of assessment.
    2. WEEKLY ASSESSMENT REVIEWS:  Occasionally, you will receive and turn in a weekly review.  You may receive help during the week. These reviews will count as a quiz grade!
    3. HOMEWORK:   Homework will be assigned and checked daily.  Effort is the primary objective and papers will be evaluated accordingly.  All work must be neatly shown, in pencil. 
    4. CLASSWORK:  This category includes any work assigned during class as well as class participation.

     

    Grades are based on a total point system.  In general, Tests and Projects range form 60-100 points.  Quizzes range from 15-40 points.
