    Grading practice/policy

    Students in French I will be graded using a total points system. Students will earn points by completing homework, in-class assignments, quizzes, tests and projects.  It is very important for students to complete assignments on time, as many assignments tend to build on the previous assignments. Projects and assignments will be accepted late for partial credit.   If a student is absent from school, he or she will have one week to show the teacher any late work for full credit.
