Students are graded using points. Tests, essays, and projects comprise the majority of the student's grade. Homework and classwork comprise the remaining portions of the grade (20 percent or less).
If students don't finish classwork, they are able to complete it at home and return it next class without penalty.
Students will be given the opportunity to re-do essays if the original grade is below a D, and the work was turned in on time. Late work that starts as a D will not be permitted a re-do.
Students always have time in class to work on projects; however, it won't be enough time and they will need to work on projects at home.
