This week we'll focus on:

Winter Nature Journal We’ll turn our focus back to Thoreau and nature journaling. Nature journals are an essential element of your semester portfolio. They will offer you the opportunity to demonstrate the “ability to comprehend, analyze and critique increasingly complex literature in a wide range of formats, and genres to build an understanding of the human experience. Complete and submit your Winter Nature Journal this week.

Finishing-Up Formative Work for Summative Assessment #1: Review the necessary formative work you need to do to demonstrate readiness for the next summative assessment.

Summative Assessment #1: Build upon completed formative work to create your first summative assessment of the semester. This is your big grade for this term. It must be completed no later than Monday, March 19th.

Conferences: Need some 1:1 help? You can have a conference with Mrs. Juster or you can have a peer conference.

So, wait a I have homework?

Yes- always! Within each term, you need to work towards developing the skills and knowledge to successfully demonstrate competency. Use this syllabus and calendar to keep track of deadlines and manage your time successfully. Once a deadline has passed, scores will be entered into X2. If you miss a deadline, you will have to meet with Mrs. Juster (most likely outside of class) for a conference and review of your work. This is the only way to change your grade/score.
