All handouts given in class will be organized into your binder Dividers (please have in this order): Formatives Class notes Geography Tests and quizzes SOL review homework Composition book: Can be any color This will be kept in class

4 Formatives This section will have your warm-up and exit tickets. I may also give practice tests Formatives are not calculated into your grade Formatives help monitor your understanding of material

5 Class notes This section will have the handouts completed in class

6 Tests and Quizzes All your original tests and quizzes will be returned to you. These are summative grades and will be calculated into your grade. These will be good review for the SOL Do not misplace these assessments

7 SOL Review We will be reviewing for the SOL test all year Yes, you heard correctly. I will be giving you periodic SOL formative Assessments (remember, formatives do not get calculated into your grade, so do not panic). These assessments help us both know what information you are retaining.

8 Homework Any papers given for homework go in this section. This way you always know where you put your homework. Once we go over the homework in class, it will become class notes Don’t worry ; I always tell you which section papers need to go in.

9 Class rules and expectations START OF CLASS PROCEDURE: Step 1. Arrive prepared BEFORE the bell rings. Step 2: Pick up the warm-up from basket upon entering the Classroom Step 3. If needed, pick up your composition book from class bin upon entering the classroom Step 4: At the bell, go to your seat and quietly begin warm-up

10 Homework: All homework is expected to be turned in on the due date Grading 4 points = all completed 3 points = ¾ completed 2 points = ½ completed 1 point = ¼ completed Z did not have hw Late policy: HW reviewed in class may not be handed in late. HW that I collect to grade may be handed in the next day (not the next class)

11 TEST PROCEDURES: TESTS & QUIZES Unit tests will be given as we complete each SOL. Quizzes will be given throughout the unit.

12 Reassessment Policy Students will be provided one opportunity per Summative for reassessment on non-mastered objectives. Formative assessments linked to the unit must be completed prior to the original Summative. Students must complete a reassessment form and return it by the next block. The reassessment score will be averaged with the original score for a final Summative grade.

13 How will reassessments show up in Clarity ? S-Test: Reconstruction 58 pts. (this is weighted 1 so it gets calculated into overall average) F- HW: Reassessment corrections S-Test: Reconstruction reassessment 58 pts. (this will be weighted 1 and the original score will be changed to a weight of zero. A weight of zero does not get calculated into the grade 581 50154 50Z
