*You will notice on the first report card that there are now two grades for English; Reading and Writing. Reading includes vocabulary and Writing includes grammar. You will no longer see an average for reading. It is important that when students are given writing assignments they follow all stages of the writing process (completed in class), so that they receive the best grade possible. I will try to give summative tests biweekly in reading and writing assignments/grammar tests on the alternate weeks.
*Tests or summative assignments are worth 65% of the students' grade point average. It is essential that students study for exams and complete project to the best of their ability. Homework, classwork, and quizzes are now 35% of the students' grades, and a point value is given for each assignment. Homework and classwork range in point values of 10-30 points each, quizzes 30-50 points, and tests are all at 100 point values.
