As for my grading scale, it is listed below. Every assignment is worth a set amount of points and then converted to a percentage.
90% - 100% = A
89% - 80% = B
79% - 70% = C
69% - 60% = D
59% - 0% = F
This year I am asking that each student have one (1) spiral notebook that will be used every day in class. Also, each student needs to have a jump drive/thumb drive. We use technology in our class and it’s essential to have a safe place for students to save their work. The jump drives are relatively inexpensive. They run between $8.00 - $10.00 (580 or 1g is great). If there is a problem with this requirement, please let me know and I will see what I can do to help. At times, projects are assigned that will require materials outside of the basic school supplies. At those times an explanation of the project and supplies that will be needed will be given in a written project sheet. If there is a problem with a project, please let me know as soon as possible so that we can develop a solution together.
This is going to be a fantastic year, and I’m glad to share it with you. If for any reason you need to contact me, please feel free to call me at (480) 472-4534 or email me at email@example.com.
