Daily Grade Corrections
Hello Parents and Students!
As we near the end of our time in 8th grade and prepare for high school, I am implementing a new grading style that I believe will help improve students grades, encourage them to take ownership of their assignments, and prepare them for the challenges of high school course work while still benefiting from the sheltered environment of junior high.
Students will be graded for accuracy on daily grade assignments (little to no completion work). My hope is to encourage them to take their assignments more seriously and better utilize their class time. Grades may initially appear to be lower while they adjust.
However, all daily grades (excluding double daily grades like quizzes) will be eligible for corrections. Students will have 2 days outside of class time to correct any answers they may have gotten wrong for the ability to redeem all possible points back with the possibility of correcting to full credit.
What this means, is if a student receives any any grade below a 100%, they make correct and justify their answers to reach the intended 100%. Again, this is available to all students, on all daily assignments. Please continue to check grades, and parents please encourage your children to take accountability for these assignments and take advantage of the opportunity to improve their grades.
Corrections are also a great way for students to utilize their advisory time!
