PROGRESS REPORTS went home today. I am not so happy with some of the grades. Grades tend to fall off in the last nine weeks, but most of the poor grades are due to lack of effort and missing or incomplete work. The good and bad news is that we have 4 1/2 weeks of school left. Students need to keep working!
All classes are currently working on an essay about what superhero powers they would like to possess. They have two handouts on this and will be getting the rubric tomorrow. A rough draft of the three body paragraphs are due tomorrow. The finished rough draft is due Friday, and we will type Friday and Monday. This is a major grade of 100 points and can help to make or break a student’s grade. If they are paying attention and following the rubric, they should do well.
