*Work ethic grades are earned by the level of completion, neatness, effort, and correctness.  If a student does not receive a 100 on a work ethic assignment, he/she is encouraged to read the comments  that I write on the paper, complete the assignment as directed, and turn the assignment back in to be regraded.  Journals and writings are assessed on the amount of critical and creative thinking, the details and feelings included, and the use of effective vocabulary, transitions, sentence structure, grammar, mechanics, and spelling.  When a student receives a "1" on their writing, that is equivalent to "novice" and will be a 69 (or below) in the gradebook.  A "2" is equivalent to a  "apprentice" and a "C", a "3" is "proficient" and a "B", and a "4" is "distinguished" and equivalent to an "A".  

*This year in writing we focus on letters, articles, and narratives.  We will improve our vocabulary and focus on writing complete, interesting sentences.  I will be encouraging students to use their "voice" in their writing, while including as much detail, feeling, and evidence as possible to back up their opinion or main idea.
