Grading:

In an effort to ensure that student grades more accurately reflect skills and abilities, the Language Arts department uses the following categories:

  • Formative assessments (quizzes, daily assignments, discussions, class activities) will count for 10% of the semester grade
  • Summative assessments (tests, papers, projects, speeches) will count for 90%.
  • Semester final will comprise 10% of your final grade for this class.

 

ELA Late policy:

Formative Assignments: You may turn in late assignments until the end of the unit, after which work will not be accepted.

Summative Assignments: You may turn in late assignments by submitting after TIDE reflection sheet is complete to teacher’s satisfaction.

Help is provided:  Teachers are available to help you before and after school.
