Daily Expectations:

  Students are to have their textbook ,Ipad (fully charged),  a notebook (if not taking notes on Ipad), folder, and a pencil. 

Homework: 

The amount and types of assignments will vary.  Homework assignments will be reviewed in class. Many assignments will be checked, and students will receive points for it.   Assignments, test dates, and other important information will be posted on 6A's  team webpage.

Test and Quizzes: 

All tests and quizzes will be announced in advance.  The number of points and types of questions will vary.

 

Grading:

The student's grade will be determined by the total points accumulated from tests, quizzes, homework assignments, and other activities throughout the grading period. 

 
Grading Scale:
 100 - 90     A
  89 -  80     B
  79 -  70     C
  69 -  60     D
  59 -   0      F 
   

Extra Credit:

 I do not allow students to do extra credit to improve grades.  I believe if the students put forth the necessary effort and perform on a daily basis to the best of their ability, then they should be able to maintain good and / or passing grades.  The time and effort they put into an extra credit project or assignment needs to be applied each day.


General Rules for Homework

  • The Google Calendar or Agenda App  on the Ipad  or Team A webpage should be checked nightly
  • Homework will be Monday through Thursday.
  • Homework on weekends is rare , but it may occur.
  • It should not take more than 20 - 25 minutes to complete the homework.
  • If an assignment is incomplete or not turned in a zero (0)will be recorded for that assignment.  Half credit will be given for assignments turned in late (the next day/class)
