Technology



Welcome to Mrs. Fisher's Technology site! Here you will find grading and absence policies and weekly Technology homework assignments for Junior High. Elementary students can check with their classroom teacher for missed assignments. 

Grading

Junior High will continue to use EasyTech lessons and activities as well as other resources in Technology. In class assignments will be worth 30% of your grade and homework will be worth 30% as well. Although you will not be graded on proper keyboarding technique in Junior High, you will be graded on your keyboarding speed. You'll take a keyboarding test twice each quarter and will be graded according to your proximity to the required speed for your grade. Keyboarding will make up 30% of your grade. Attendanc will make up 10% of your grade. All grades will be posted weekly in Cornerstone.

Homework

In general, assignments are due the week after you receive them, by 8:15 on the morning of your Technology day. You may turn in an assignment after the due date during the same quarter to receive 50% credit. For example, if you score 8 on a 10-point assignment and you turn it in more than 7 days after it was assigned, you'll earn 4 points.

Absences

Technology only meets one a week. If you miss one Technology session, it's like missing a week of school! Please avoid missing Technology for appointments. If you must miss a Technology session, it is YOUR responsibility to come get the assignment from me and turn it in by the due date. If you miss several days due to illness, I will give you extra time to make it up. Either way, please come talk to me to get the assignment. If you know ahead of time that you will miss Technology for a given week, please see me to get the assignment early.
