2009

*3rd and 7th contain LUNCH from 11:12-11:42 am because I have freshmen classes during those two periods. Upperclassman may visit for tutoring/make-up opportunities during their lunch time but with the understanding of not disrupting my Bio classes.

 

My Grading Policy

Biology Category Weight
Classwork/Quiz 50
Test 40
Warm-up/Homework 10
AVID Category Weight
Classwork (AVID work after tutorials) 30
Group Work (Tutorials) 30
Homework (Binder Checks) 30
Participation (Viking Lab) 10

I enter grades for an assignment when I have 90% turned in.

This allows the students who were absent or needed extra time to finish the opportunity to turn it in.

Environmental Systems Weight
Classwork 20
Minor (quizzes, etc.) 30
Major (tests, ppts, etc.) 50

This is very similar to Mark Anthony's grading policy. Each six weeks has a required number of points to earn a 100. Any questions can be answered on the moodle page linked at the bottom.

Tutoring Opportunities
spacer

I am available to students before school from 7:00-7:30 am on B days, afterschool from 2:45-3:30 pm on A days, and during PLUS time everyday which is from 10:47-11:12 am. I have an open door policy during these times. Any student is welcome to come into my classroom (2009) to receive extra help, make-up missing assignments/notes, or to get minor assistance with other subjects. 

Students may also set up a specific time with me if these are inconvenient.

End of 5th Six Weeks

* Because I teach Biology on both A & B days but I teach AVID only on B days, the calendar above is split in this manner. The A day lessons are the Biology lessons that will carry over into 6th and 7th periods on B days. The B day lessons refer to only 8th period AVID .
