Evaluation If your Memory Book is completed and shows some creativity and thought, your grade will be no less than 80%. The more thorough and the more creative you are in decorating your book, pages and sections with drawings, pictures, photographs, images, or videos the higher the grade will be. Any presentation that does not contain all 13 sections will receive a lower grade regardless of how fancy it is. Any book that is “haphazardly” put together will NOT receive a grade. Late assignment will be severely penalized.
