UNITS 7&8 Performance Assessment/Project


Directions and the template are both on GOOGLE CLASSROOM

ASSIGNED 4/24/2018; DUE MAY 4, 2018

***ASSIGNED 2/28/2018


Students will be assigned an annotated timeline performance assessment (project) on 2/18. We will spend 1 hr and 15 minutes in the computer lab researching topics and taking notes on that day. The final project is due on 3/14/18 (This allows 3 days that students can use the school computer lab after school to work on their project.) Students will be shown models in the class room to demonstrate what the final product should look like. The final product can be electronic or on paper (If on paper, it must be formatted/attached to look like a time line!)

  • Homework will not be listed or updated daily on this site; however, I will post assignments in the grade book on a weekly basis.
  • Please check Parent Vue on a weekly basis.
  • MOST late assignments can still be turned in for partial credit. (-20 points 1 day late, 10 points each day after)

Study Guides

  • Study Guides are given out 2-3 days before each test and checked in class for accuracy.
  • We check the answers in class. If the paper is blank or incomplete students are expected to fill in missing and incorrect answers so that they can do well on the test.
  • Study Guides are the ONLY assignment that are never accepted late unless the student is absent from school or comes in tardy.
  • If students come in tardy, the guide is due as soon as they get to school. All study guide answers come 100% from the written class notes.
