Schedule & Calendar (changing all the time for now check back in August to see what final revisions have been made.)

Formative Assessments & Summative Assessments


What needs to be done & when things are due.


Rubric for all assessments, this is what I am looking for. Memorization will not be acceptable in this class understanding and application is what you need to accomplish in this class: the following rubric also pertains to homework, worksheets, writing assignments any formative assessment they do.
