Greetings! With opening of the parent portal of Power School, I thought it would be helpful to provide an overview of how assignments weigh in my classes as well as basic class expectations.
English 2 and English 1 classes: essays and tests are worth 50% of the class grade; quizzes and presentations are worth 30% of the class grade; homework and classwork assignments are worth 20% of the class grade. Midterm and final exams are worth 20% of the semester grade.
Humanities: Grade is calculated based on total points earned with the heaviest emphasis on essays and projects. Midterm and final exams are worth 20% of the semester grade.
Essay expectations: 1. A typed rough draft is required. 2. Final drafts must be submitted to turnitin.com prior to coming to class the day they are due. 3. Rough drafts are to be turned with with final drafts since revision counts. 4. If a student is absent the day an essay is due, he/she must email me their final drafts to avoid a zero and submit final draft to turnitin. Bring rough and final drafts to class upon returning to school. 5. Direct quotes are required.
No late work accepted.
