    In this class... just do your work... do it well... and learn from your mistakes... It is quite simple. 

    * I do NOT offer extra credit as this covers up mistakes... mistakes are at the heart of learning... So, why would we cover them up?  I suggest you embrace your mistakes, learn your life lesson, and move forward...

    * If you are looking to earn "extra challenge" points, you must choose a Tier #2 or Tier #3 assignment... These choices add points to your overall score by rewarding students that go above and beyond the MINIMUM expectations...

    Example of how each TIER is scored... 

    Tier 1       Points earned on assessment

    86 points out of 100 points possible    =   86 points on powerschool


     Tier 2       Points earned on assessment + (Points earned times .075) 

    86 points out of 100 points possible + (86 *.075 = 6.45)   =   92.45 points 

     


    Tier 3       Points earned on assessment + (Points earned times .150

    86 points out of 100 points possible + (86 *.150 = 12.9)   =   98 points 


     Students must develop a plan to connect their idea for a challenge project to our essential question in the chapter of study….
