Class expectations, Grades 7 and 8 ELA

  • Students are expected to have their supplies each day.  This means they must come to class with their ELA notebook and a writing utensil.  It is a good idea for students to carry their homework books in their bookbags, so that if they complete their classwork early, they can make a dent in the nightly reading homework.

    Grading policy:  Homework is given in ELA on a nightly basis.  Homework counts for a full 25% of a student's grade!  Essay grades, project grades, and quiz/test grades count for 50% of the grade.  The remaining 25% the grade is based on classwork:  This includes attitude, effort, and output.
