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.
