Class Participation, Homework, Class work: 25%

    • We prefer to call this class participation and preparation. That being

    said, coming to class ON TIME and with the appropriate tools for

    learning EVERYDAY will be a large percentage of this grade. Being attentive in class and during all class activities will affect the grade.

    • There will be assignments given at the teacher’s discretion. These assignments must be completed on time.

    • Also, the schools attendance policy will be enforced.


    Quizzes: 10%

    • Given at teacher’s discretion.


    Tests : 15%

    • Assessments are given at the end of each chapter containing both multiple choice and open-ended questions. All tests will be announced at least 2 days in advance.


    Performance Tasks: 25%

    • Each theme will have a corresponding Performance Task.

    • These tasks will be assigned at the beginning of each theme with a mandatory due date.

      Failure to turn in a Performance Task on the assigned due date will result in an automatic deduction of 20 points for the first day, 10 additional points the second day. NO Performance Task will be accepted after the second late day.


    Midterm/Final Exam: 25%

    • At the end of each grading period you will be given a

    exam to determine your knowledge of the content. You will be

    given a review and multiple days’ notice before the testing day. It

    will contain both multiple choice and open-ended questions. The

    exams are worth 25% of your overall grade.


    NOTE: Any form of academic dishonesty on any assignments will result in a “0” for that assignment and notification to your parent/guardian.
