• Phil Weagraff’s 6th - 8th Grade Classes

     

    GRADING PROCEDURE

     

    ¨   On many occasions, turning in classroom assignments on time is given a 5-10 point value. This assessment addresses the responsibility of the student and citizenship within the classroom environment.

     

    ¨    AR reading receive 100 pts per quarter. [When attending at school; goal based on reading level and 3 hours of reading a week.]

     

    ¨     Projects: Group or individual projects/presentations receive anywhere from 50 points to 200 points depending on the length and detail of content required. [Attendence at school activities.]

     

    ¨        Late Assignments:  It is every teachers’ expectation that all assignments be submitted on time. A student should not depend on partial credit for late assignments. No late assignments will be accepted for credit unless accompanied with an excused absence or arranged personally with me. It is not our intention to overload students with homework. If students use class time wisely and manage their time outside of school well, homework or timelines should not be overwhelming or unreasonable. 

     

    ¨       Periodic tests and quizzes are given and graded; quizzes are usually not more than 20 pts while tests are generally 100+ points each.

     

    ¨       Extra Credit will not be available. There is an equal opportunity for each student to earn extra credit. I have extra credit weaved into the most assignments [quizzes, handouts, etc] throughout each quarter. It has been my observation that students who complete the assignments initially handed out, and turn them in completed on time always perform at or above grade level. 

     

    CLASS ROUTINES

     

    ¨       Students are to raise their hands if they want my attention or make a verbal contribution to the class.

     

    ¨       All homework assignments will be written in the Daily Planners [when at schoiol]. Major assignments and due dates are posted on the school's web site under my name on the “Teacher Pages” icon and can be seen on Google Classroom.

     

    ¨       Each class has an assignment box in the classroom that they are to use when an assignment is complete.

     

    ¨       Students are expected to have all necessary materials for each class: AR book, pencil or pen, SpringBoard booklet, and all necessary assignments. 

     

    ¨       Students are expected to be ready to work at the bell that begins class time.

     

    One classroom rule: RESPECT [Showing Value] at all times – towards all people - and all property.
