Earthquake Project Timeline

 

 

Earthquake Unit Requirements, Grading, & Schedule

 

1.      The following categories (Earthquake Project Facts & Sources, Creative Project, and Oral Presentation) will be graded based on the rubric.  You will lose 10 points off your final grade if you are not prepared by the due date (including:  You must have a separate copy of your notes/facts properly organized for your presentation because I will need to use your fact sheets during your presentation).  Presentations usually take a couple of days.  Students will be called at random and everybody is expected to be ready by the deadline.  Total grade equal to two “100 point” project/lab grades =   200 pts. total.

 

2.      The Homework Packet will be graded according to the existing homework policy (by due date = full credit, if late  = partial credit).  There is a total of 4 homework assignments in the packet.

 

3.      Max Axiom Quiz:  a graded (20/20), open-book  “ guided-reading quiz” based on the graphic novel, “The Earth-Shaking Facts About Earthquakes with Max Axiom”

 

4.      Below is the schedule for this unit.  The days where Chromebooks (*CB*) are listed will be days where you will have the majority of class time to work independently on any of the parts of this unit you choose.  On some of the days we will dedicate approximately 10 minutes to “earthquake news” & readings that will help you better understand some of the main ideas associated with earthquakes.  Also, I will be using the time to conduct progress checks and provide assistance.
