Week 9 – October 19-23 2440


Week 9 – To-Do List & Important Info

Important Information for All Classes

  • This is the LAST week of the 9 weeks, which means that grades are due at the end of the week. Nothing will be accepted after Friday at 4:00 PM.  Please check your current grade, check the missing assignments list, turn in any missing assignments before Friday, and talk to me if you have any questions/concerns about your grade.
  • Many of you are not keeping up with your daily work.  If you are struggling, please talk to me so that I can help you.  I don’t know you are struggling if you don’t talk to me about it!  Don’t let it get to be a problem before you address it.
  • Warm-Ups
    • You should be in your seat and typing when the bell rings.
    • Your warm-up period is about 5-10 minutes, so that I can take attendance and get ready for class.  Use this time to practice typing or study your vocabulary words.
  • Schoology Grades
    • It is very easy to see what you are missing on Schoology and check your grades.  Just login to Schoology, click “Courses”, choose your course.  Once inside the course, click on “Gradebook” on the left side to view your grades.
    • These grades are only grades for Schoology assignments, not your complete course grade for my class.  However, you can see what you are missing in Schoology very easily and see what will be entered in the gradebook.  See me if you have questions.
    • Discussion Questions on Schoology:  
      • Make sure you are capitalizing the first word of every sentence
      • Make sure you have at least 4 sentences before posting your response
      • Make sure you are completely answering the question(s)
  • Next 9 Weeks & Rest of Year Notes
    • Next nine weeks, you will begin receiving a weekly grade called “Work Ethic Grade”.  Basically, this grade breaks down your participation in class, your attendance, your promptness to class, your dress, and your attitude.  As in any job, you would be fired if you continually missed work or showed up late every day.  Also, if you gave your management attitude or showed up out of uniform, your management would not provide a glowing review for you and they may speak down about your work ethic.
    • Think of this class as a job – you are an employee, your job is completing your assignments, your payment is your grade, and I am your manager.  I expect you to show up to work each, on time, in work/school uniform, and perform the tasks that I assign.  Do these things and you will receive 100% of your pay (or a 100) for the week.  You will lose points for each infraction, such as absences, tardies, missing assignments, etc.
