Grades are weighted in my classroom as follows:
Tests/Quizzes - 25%
Papers/Projects - 25%
Homework - 20%
Classwork - 20%
Participation/Responsibility - 10%
It is a general rule that tests are not allowed to be re-taken.
*Since this class is an elective, homework will be kept to a minimum.
Students and parents can keep up to date with grades and missing work by checking PowerSchool on a regular basis. This way, surprises can be avoided at the end of the trimester!
Teachers at Beach Middle School stress responsibility and student ownership of grades.
