Supplies - you need to bring to class every day
Grading and Homework:Homework is weighted 8% of the grade. All other summatives will be weighted 92%.Reading is a nightly homework expectation. To ensure students are completing their reading and thinking about their reading, the graded homework assignment will be questions students must respond to in writing, asking them to process the class topics and apply them to what they are reading independently. These responses will be used to prompt discussions in reading conferences with students. Additionally, there will be vocabulary packets to complete at home for homework.Late WorkLate assignments will be penalized. Your grade will drop 1 point for each day it is turned in late. Please make every effort to turn work in on time. See me if you know you will not be able to complete an assignment on time.
