- Students expectations...
- to read and interpret data in graphical or table form that is relevant to the many Earth Systems
- analysis data to further an understanding of Earth and its many part and make predictions, or understand relationships
- class is heavy in writing and reading
- problem solving that requires moderate mathskills mostly associated with word problems such as rates of change, percent change and math associated with the creation of graphs.
Rubric Grading / Mastery Work
|Percent Grade||Description||Rubric Grade|
Exceptional: A student earning a 4 has shown mastery of the information or task and has gone beyond expectation in either skill or performance. All students can earn a 4 through either good study habits and or through retake opportunities.
|75%||Proficient: A student earning a 3 has shown proficiency of the information or task. This is the expectation or bar which all students can and should achieve through hard-work and practice.||3|
|50%||Reaching Proficient: A student earning a 2 has not yet shown proficiency of the information or task. A student that earns a 2 should look to attend study hall sessions and make corrections on assignment, lab, or test to improve their score.||2|
|25%||Falling Far Below Proficient: A student earning a 1 shows either a low level of understanding on either the information or how to complete the task. A score of 1 may also have resulted in the student not understanding the directions or not putting forth the effort needed to fully complete the assignment. A student earning a 1 on any assignment should attend study sessions and look to retake assignment, lab or test to improve their score.||1|
