Community Day School
English 11 and 12 integrates the language arts skills of reading, analysis, interpretation, writing, research, speaking, and listening through a literature-based curriculum.
Each assignment completed in class will be graded. Grades are weighted in order to give higher value to assignments that reflect student understanding of skills and standards.
-Daily Work . . . . . .15%
-Classwork. . . . . . . .35%
-Assessments. . . . . .50%
I do not give points in my English gradebook for participation. I believe your English grade should reflect mastery of English standards that you achieve through assignments.
I reward students who participate regularly by adding additional points onto classwork assignments and rounding grades.
Make Up Work
-All assignments are to be completed the day they are assigned and kept in your class folder unless instructed otherwise.
-Work is collected from your class folder turned in about every 2 weeks.
-Grades are updated every two weeks.
-Grades are posted on Student Portal and posted in class.
-Students are personally responsible for making arrangements with the teacher to complete make up work within a reasonable amount of time.
Use your best judgment and show respect.
Follow our ESLRs:
1. Academically Proficient
2. Skilled Communicators
3. Personally and Socially
I view the student level system as a way to reward students who are serious about their schoolwork, demonstrate mature behavior, and respect CDS. I also view it as a way to keep the line of communication clear to students who need to improve their behavior before they return to their regular schools.
I do not recommend students who have missing assignments, or are receiving a D or F in my class. Students with excessive tardies or absences, or those who cannot follow my class rules will not be recommended no matter what grade you are receiving in my class. I expect that you take your application and this process seriously.
