Welcome to 6th grade social studies and language arts!
My contact information (email is best): firstname.lastname@example.org
Office hours for drop in student help, retests, writing conferences, questions or concerns: Wednesday mornings between 8:30 and 9:00. I am also available at lunch by appointment or after school by appointment.
Grading policies: Late or revised classwork will be accepted within a week of due date. After that, I will generally accept the work for only 70% credit. For tests, projects, and final draft writing I usually offer a way to improve the grade up to 90% within a certain time frame. Some larger writing pieces may only be revised to 85%. The manner of revision or retake varies by assignment and I will always explain this to students and post it in my blog.
