Explanation: Tests are given to report students' mastery of a cumulative set of objectives. Quizzes are given regularly throughout a unit as a guideline for me as the teacher over specific objectives covered the day before. These quizzes let me know which material is fully understood by students and which may need to be remediated. While these are reported grades a student may, with remediation, improve any and every formative score. Any project assigned will be a combination of Daily and Summative scores and students will be provided a rubric for such assignments. There will be no field trips. We will also view educational segments from PBS, the History Channel and the Discovery Channel.
Please let me know if you have any concerns about your young adult's exposure to these media sources.
