Social Studies (specific)
Weekly 3:00-4:00 with Ms. Kaczmarowski (See Ms. Kaczmarowski's website calendar for days)Gradebook:I use a “Mastery” grading system in which the student’s individual accomplishment in this class will substantiate the grade earned. In this system, only those items that a student completed on her/his own will go toward the overall grade of progress.
Exceeds: 87-100% Meets: 70-86% Approaches: 51-69% Falls Below: 50%
*NOTE: The grades will appear normally on report cards and records in the following manner:
A = 90-100% B = 80-89%
C = 70-79%D = 60-69%
F = 50-59%
The lowest score for failed attempts is 50%. If no attempt is made to answer a set of questions, a score of zero may be given. Tests may be made up or re-taken.
