Most of our assignments are turned in through Google Classroom. When students are absent, they are responsible for checking Classroom for their make up work.
Students are reminded about missed assignments and given at least one day to turn those assignments in before I send them to Homework Detention.
We have bell work 3-5 times week. We have a quiz over this bell work every 1-3 weeks. The bell work sheet doubles as a study sheet for the quiz.
Students have 3 (2 Nonfiction; 1 Fiction) genre requirements each quarter. The due dates are posted in Google Classroom. Each of these assignments is worth 20 points.
Students are required to earn 25 AR points each quarter.
The final 9 weeks AR grade comes from points and comprehension.
