I use a mostly “standards-based” grading system. Students will have multiple opportunities to show that they understand a concept. My goal is for all students to eventually show a deep understanding of all the 6th grade learning goals.
I don’t offer extra credit, but I will gladly offer multiple opportunities to practice, to learn, and to demonstrate understanding.
Late Work: It is important that students learn the habit of meeting deadlines. I ask that all students do their best to get work handed in on time, but I will accept work through the end of the unit.
