  • Weebly Entry #2  is due Thursday 10/6 on your Independent Novel and one for our class novel. Please refer to the rubric and multiple Weebly videos to assist you. 
  • Since we did not meet today your Vocabulary and Spelling test for Unit 1 will be Monday 10/3
Hello 8th Grade Families,

I wanted to tell you about a few changes I've made. My original grading scale has been altered. Now, it will be as follows:

  • Class Participation- 15% (usually out of 10 points- has to do with class work, participation, and behavior)
  • Homework- 15% (usually out of 10 points- students are not graded on what they got right for homework; they earn 10 points for doing their homework)
  • Comprehension/Skills- 50%- This is for posts on Weebly, anything related to class novels, etc.
  • Vocabulary- 20%- this is for the bi-weekly vocabulary tests.
  • I originally stated that both the Independent Novel Entry and the Classroom Novel Entry would have the same criteria. I made a slight change to this in order to alleviate some of the workload. 
    • The 8th graders are going to follow the original rubric, BUT the ONLY CHANGE is for the Novel Study Entry- they DO NOT have to write a summary. OTHER THAN THAT everything else is the SAME.
