We’ve now completed two weeks of the semester, and I just entered the first assignment into Infinite Campus. Following our classroom calendar, I entered grades for the initial round of community circle. The assignment is called Community Circle #1 in the gradebook.
Students, as you know, I assess your speaking skills during community circles and meetings using a Google Form. Today, I moved the data from that form to a spreadsheet and used it to calculate your average score. Following the rubric, this score became your grade. If you are unhappy with your grade and/or just want to improve it during the next two weeks, please check the directions and rubric here.
I also created the chart above to help us understand trends. I am proud to see that the majority of students earned a 2.5 or C, which means that they are almost reaching the learning goals. Remember the learning goals for this assignment are:
The next assignment that will go in the gradebook is Letter #1, so make sure you try your hardest as we write them this week. We will finish the letters on Thursday. On Friday, we will complete a Step Up to Writing assignment, which is titled Summary Paragraph #1. To earn a grade for this, you will need to complete a vocabulary card based on a word from the article, just like we did last week. Keep up the good work!
