The student is completely in charge of his/her grade in my class. This means that I give assignments and the STUDENTS DECIDES whether or not to do the work, how well, and whether or not to turn it in. The grades are based on the following percentages, categories can be found on the course syllabus, which is on engradepro.com under class resources.

PARTICIPATION/ Behavior Log
I not only want to teach each student an academic subject, I believe it is important to help make students aware of their actions. I want to help students choose appropriate behaviors so that they will be successful when they are in the “real world.” As such, a behavior log will be a part of the participation grade in class and will count towards the student’s total grade. This can and will affect your child’s grade IF he/she chooses to engage in inappropriate classroom behaviors. IF, however, the student acts appropriately (see the good choice column of the behavior and consequences chart) then these points are FREE POINTS that will help the student’s grade. I hope you can help encourage your child to make the RIGHT choices
