MARCH 1ST BEGINS THE WEEK OF THE WRITING TEST THESE ASSIGNMENTS ARE ESSTENTIAL TO AID IN THE SUCCESS OF THEIR WRITING.
Students will have one compliance grade earch week for the assignments and one Mastery grade for the test. If a student does not complete on the deadline it will be late and the student will recieve 60%. The students who get extra time have the evenings at home (along with the weekends) and 3-4 days during the week to work on the assignments. This is a pace we must hold to in order that they do not get behind and we can stay on task.
Their grade is their grade. What your student puts into the class is what they will get out of it. This schedule takes us to the writing test and then after we will work toward the reading test.
I will also as time allows a TED talk assignment so that they are exposed to unique and new information.
We will begin our study of the HOLOCAUST! You will work on USA test prep two days a week in class and must finish and work at home if you need the extra time. You will follow the same schedule as stated above.
If you have any questions please email me I will be happy to discuss you child's progress.
