Daily Grades & Quizzes

Students will prepare to discuss materials by completing reading preparation sheets. Other daily assignments will also be made. Occasionally quizzes will be given.


Students must contribute to class discussions and be aware of current events. Half of the grade in this category will be based on the teacher's evaluation of the quantity and quality of each student's contribution to class discussions.
