For my classes, grading for both seventh and eighth grade will be 30% for homework and class assignments, 30% for quizzes, and 40% for all writing assignments and tests. Students are expected to bring their English book, workbook, paper, and a pencil or pen to class every day.

Current class assignments will be posted on the homework page of the website, but be sure to check with your student and his or her assignment book. Be sure to check for additional assignments when accessing the site. Of course, you may always email me at stephenbanks@sevier.org.
