Welcome to my class!I hope that we have a successful semester!
Grading Information: Grades will be sorted into three categories - major, minor, and participation/practice. All major grades combined will account for 50% of the quarter grade. Minor grades will account for 40% of the quarter grade, and participation/practice will account for the remaining 10%. In addition, at the end of the semester, the grades for Quarters 1 and 2 will each make up 40% of the semester grade and the remaining 20% of the semester grade will come from the exam grade.
Major grades will include assessments completed at the end of each unit. Assessments may be completed either at home or at school for blended learning students. The WMHS Honor Code will be in effect for all assessments. You may not get help from another student or any electronic device/app. You may request one retake attempt per assessment after additional review has been completed.
Minor grades will include shorter 5 to 10 question assessments completed throughout each unit. The Honor Code is again in effect and one retake attempt may be requested.
Participation/Practice grades will be taken for watching the assigned videos, completing the assigned practice, etc
Additional comments: This semester will be quite different for everyone. I will be using Canvas to share all assignments with you. Canvas may be new to you like it is to me, but we’ll learn together. It will be very important for you to stay up to date with your work and complete the assignments in a timely manner. I know there may be days when something doesn’t work correctly or you’re struggling with the material, but we’ll work together and figure it out.If you have any questions, it is easiest to reach me by email. My email address is firstname.lastname@example.org You may also call me between Noon and 1:00 pm at (540) 886-4286.
