Essential questions/problem-solving  These will be included in lessons.  Answer questions in complete sentences  Provide complete examples with drawings  Show work for problem-solving  Always add title and date, include in folder.  Essential questions/problem-solving will add up to be your first competency (though we will work on them throughout the semester.)

Competencies  Competency 1- Essential questions (given throughout the semester)  Competency 2- Test review questions (given before tests)  Competency 3- Exam questions (given the week before exams) 

More info on Competencies  I will give you lists of these questions to answer, examples to create, problems to solve.  Answers must be done in complete sentences.  When I ask for examples, they must be numerical examples, with units.  Sometimes you are asked to do drawings or problem-solving as part of your competency. You are not graded on artistic ability, but rather, you are showing me an understanding of the concept being studied.  All questions/examples/drawings are to be kept in a folder (portfolio) in the classroom.  BE patient!!!! If you do the work and leave it with me, it will get graded. 
