4. Inside that pencil bag a set of 24 different colored pencils- Crayola brand is the preferred brand, NO ERASABLE or
COLORIFIC Colored pencils -they do not blend well. Please do not buy 2 sets of 12, then students will have only 12 different colors.
These items along with student’s sketchbook and the spiral will be used for student’s personal use in my class.
Major assignments shall constitute 60% of the grade per reporting period. Other assignments shall constitute 40% of each grade per reporting period. Teachers are required to provide at least three major assessments/grades and at least nine other grades (daily grades) during each grading period. Teachers are highly encouraged to provide more assessments as appropriate. For my class, there will certainly be more in each area.
Warm ups grades are Daily grades and there will be one for each week of school.
Sketchbook assignments are Major grades and will be assigned every two weeks starting soon. Students will be able to work on their sketchbook assignments one day during the 2 week period after it is assigned and can work on it also when they have completed an assignment. Sketchbook assignments will be listed each time they are assigned on my teacher Web page. Teacher web-http://wwjhs.tomballisd/ look for my name under the school directory. Then look for Art II or Art III. Sketchbook assignments are different for each class.
Regular assignments may vary and students when given an assignment will be told if it is a Daily or Major Grade.
Late Work- 1 Day Late= 15 points off
2 Days Late= 30 points off
After that= 0
