Library Visiting and Grade Checking
Library Visit We are heading over to the library first thing today to select your first batch of Accelerated Reader books. You may pick out any book you want as long as it is within your ZPD (Zone of Proximal Development) and an appropriate color level. Remember, you don't want a book that's too easy or too hard; rather, you want a book that "just right" for you. Most importantly, you want to find a book that's interesting and that you are passionate about reading. Make sure your A.R. book is always with you because there will be times when you'll have the opportunity to read your book in class.
Grading Policy, Google Classroom, and School Loop I finally started grading some of your assignments over the weekend, which means (though its early in the quarter) you finally have a grade in the class. First, let's review our grading policies using our online class syllabus so you know how your grade is calculated.
Next, head on over to your Language Arts Google Classroom and check your scores and feedback on individual assignments. Some of you may want to consider fixing your completd assignments and resubmitting them for a higher grade. Others of you didn't finish assignments and/or they were never officially 'turned in'. Check the status of your assignment, so you can get the highest grade possible.
Finally, head on over to School Loop and log in. In School Loop, I will show you how to check your grades and message your teachers if you have any questions or concerns.
Homework Read your A.R. book at home for at least 30 minutes.
