Expectations + Grade Bumps:
This is new for all of us. Every teacher is different and will hold his or her class to different expectations. These are my expectations.
For my CPUSH students, your grades for 3rd quarter are most likely your final grades. Enrichment assignments and learning opportunities will be provided below, and instructions on how to view, complete, and turn in online material can be found below as well. None of this is mandatory.
The enrichment assignments will have little impact toward your
overall grades, with exception to the make-up project,
the Covid-19 Video Project, which closes Thursday April 30th.
The enrichment assignments, once turned in, will be graded on a credit/no-credit basis. If a student turns in an assignment that does not meet expectations, opportunities to re-do for credit will be provided.
