Today in Class 10/20, NEW GRADING AND HOMEWORK POLICY

Today in Class

Today, students watched a video and took notes on Greek literature and the history of theatre. This video can be found on YouTube.

 Students were also told of an essay on the Women of Athens and Sparta. A hand out was given to students before the end of the nine weeks.

A new worksheet has been uploaded to Google Docs. This will be the NEW FORMAT for your weekly chapter assignments. If you did not receive that email, please email me at APWorldHistory2009@gmail.com

Homework

Students need to FINISH the Ancient Greece Study Guide by Friday, October 22 in order to receive credit.

You will have an essay due soon – keep this in mind!!

REVISED GRADING POLICY

Students, the second nine weeks signals a change in classroom policies. By now, you should have a routine and a better understanding of what is expected of you and your work.  In accordance with this, some updated our policies to match those of previous years.

– Any work that is NOT turned in by 3 PM the day is it due, will be marked as LATE (L), and only count for 80%.
-Any work turned in after a FULL block has passed, will be marked MISSING (M) and only count for 40%.
-All Missing work will be marked as a ZERO by the end of the week.
-All weekly chapter assignments will be graded by 11:18 Tuesday,  meaning you must turn it in the day it is DUE. This is the ONLY thing that has changed because students have been taking advantage of a loophole.
-Any TEST that is NOT taken within a week of the student’s return to class will be marked a ZERO.

Notes From Your T.A.

Students, please be aware that you still need to turn in Chapter 8 for CREDIT. The new sheet that Mr. Falvo sent out this afternoon is to be DOWNLOADED then used for Chapter 9 assignment. It should be noted that while you do have EDITING rights, it is a PDF file.

If you have any questions, please email me at the gmail account.

-Mr. Falvo & Shea
