Grading in C. Moore's Language Arts Classes:
- Grading categories are:
Daily Grades 20%;
Final Exams 20%
- Categories include:
novel assessments; and grammar assessments.
While vocabulary assessments are designated for Wednesdays
of each week, all other assessments in this category can be
unannounced. An announced assessment can be
administered any time after a literary concept is taught an students have had an opportunity
to learn it.
In the case of students being assigned independent reading of novels, a student will be held
responsible for a specified portion of the novel's content based upon specific dates by which
a student is assigned that portion.
Coming with short novel assessments, a novel will also carry one major project which will fall in the
Major Test category.
NOTE: The daily grades category will not include lesson practices. Practices simply allow a
student to practice and master a literary concept that he or she is learning. While a student can
reserve the right to refuse to do classwork making that choice will result in a disciplinary action.
When a student refuses a teacher's direction and redirection, it is viewed as disrespect of a
teacher. Student's refusing to perform classwork will be disciplined for "disrespect" and moved
through their teacher's five step disciplinary plan accordingly.
Major tests and writing grades include literary unit exams and major writing assignments
A final exam grade is the final comprehensive course examination, if your course carries an End
Of Course Test [EOCT], it is the EOCT. BrLC nor TGLC carry an EOCT at this time so your final
exam is your final examination.
