Announcements:   

Welcome Back 8th Grade Students and Parents/Guardians:

If you are trying to find tonight's homework(s)/assignment(s) you will need to go through JumpRope to find it and to download any documents that may go with it. This year everything that concerns attendance, grades, homework, missing assignments, grade alerts, and the progress towards the learning targets will all be done through JumpRope. This page will be strictly used for class and grade wide announcements as well as posting classroom curriculum and websites that will assist us in your learning this year.

Just so you know, I will post all homework, directions, worksheets, and projects by 5:00pm every night!

 I am really excited for this year to start and for all of us to experience a fantastic year. The following is some information about how homework/assignments will be graded ( The below is taken directly from my parent/guardian letter that will be sent home within the first days of school and will need to be signed by both the student and the parent/guardian):  

Learning Standards/Habits of Work and Learning/ Homework:  Please click here to download the parent/guardian letter

 

Since Christa McAuliffe Regional CPS is a standard based school we communicate the Massachusetts Framework’s (now known as the Common Core in 2012) by incorporating them in a learning target. Students will work towards meeting 3-5 learning targets per trimester in science.  Their progress towards meeting these learning targets will be recorded on the report cards. Grading is based on meeting the specified targets and not on behavior, timeliness of work, or participation.

 

The expectation for this science class and any other class here at McAuliffe is that each student meets the specified targets by the end of the grading period. We know that not all students learn in the same way and some may even need more practice and more time. This all totally O.K. and as their science teacher I will look at the end result and assess if he/she has consistently and independently met the specified learning targets.

 

There are two types of assessments that will help me determine if your son/daughter has met the specified learning targets each trimester: formative and summative. Formative assessments (assessment FOR learning) are opportunities to practice a new skill. Formative assessments are not graded but receive descriptive feedback to support student growth. Summative assessments (assessment OF learning) are times when students are required to prove their ability to do the required skill. Students will be given a number of opportunities to prove their ability with the last few opportunities having the most weight.

 

Meeting is earned when a student’s work fundamentally meets the learning target being assessed and the assessment requirements. It is competent work that demonstrates the essential skills and knowledge for that grade level or course. This means that the student has met the criteria for the learning target (e.g., in the rubric) as is demonstrated in the body of evidence. This is a rigorous standard and a passing grade.

Approaching is earned when a student’s work shows progress towards meeting the learning targets by the established deadline, but needs more time to achieve competency. This may mean that a student has met the majority of the supporting targets and the majority of the criteria for the long term learning target.

Beginning is earned when a student’s work does not demonstrate progress towards the learning targets by the established deadline, but needs more time to achieve competency. This may mean that a student has not met the majority of the supporting targets as well as the criteria for the long term learning target. This may also mean that there has not been a sufficient body of evidence collected.

 

Remember, the final grade will not be an average of the assessments, but a measure of ability at the end of the trimester. Please do not be discouraged if the beginning assessments are Bs or As as long as towards the end they begin to display Ms, that is part of the learning process.

 

Habits of Work and Learning:

 

Habits of Work and Learning or (HOWL’s) are skills such as work completion and the quality of that work, the ability to participate in the learning activities, being prepared for class, and the degree to which your son or daughter embodies all the four Core Values. These skills will also be assessed on the report card as well. Please see the HOWL’s rubric in the McAuliffe Family Handbook on how specifically the above skills are graded.

 

Homework:

 

With the above having been said, homework (HW) is still a critical part of making progress towards meeting the standards/learning targets.  Homework allows students to preview, review, practice, reflect upon, and elaborate on classroom learning. Homework gives all students more chances to pass the learning targets. There should be no reason for not knowing what the homework assignment is and when it is due. Personal responsibility and keeping track of assignments/obligations is crucial for being a successful student in this science class.
