Grades are primarily indicators of what students know and are able to do. Therefore, grades in English class are based on experiences that indicate student learning, such as essays, projects, presentations, and demonstrations. Rubrics will be provided, as will ample opportunity to practice skills that will be assessed, in the format that they will be assessed. Not everything will be graded.
Please Note: No discussions of grades or extra credit will occur over email or during class time. If you would like to discuss either of these issues (or anything else), please attend office hours. I am available Monday - Friday before school, during block 2, and after school by appointment. Appointments must be scheduled beforehand with reasonable notice.
