Grading Policy

Students will receive Monthly Writing on the first day of each month. Monthly Writing will consist of 5 writing prompts and the students are to select 3 to complete and hand in by the last day of the month.

1 day late = 10 points off

2 days late = 20 points off

3 days late = I will not accept


Students will also be given projects to complete at home. These projects will be related to our Social Studies content. There will be 1 project each 9 weeks grading period. The same policy as above applies to late work.


For all other assessments, I use the Buncombe County grading scale:

90 - 100 - A

80 - 90 - B

70 - 80 - C

60 - 70 - D

59 and Below is failing


I drop each students lowest grade at the end of each 9 weeks grading period. Everyone has a bad day, right? :)
