Grading Each day students are graded on a (6) point scale. (2) Points for having an assignment book with assignments written down. (2) Points for productivity and cooperation throughout the class period. (2) Points for appropriate socialization with peers and teacher.
Assignments will be given to address test-taking strategies, organization, time-management, and social skills. Assignments will be given from the You’re On Your Own Curriculum. All grades are posted in HAC.
Collaboration The success of this course is based on the communication and collaboration among the students, teachers, and parents. Teachers are asked to communicate with the study skills teacher when assignments are missing or incomplete. Any incomplete tests or quizzes may also be sent to study skills.
While teachers are encouraged to send assignments to study skills, it is optional to do so. Some teachers prefer to meet with the student personally. When assignments are not being completed or the student is unproductive during class, the study skills teacher will contact the parents.
