• Dr. Horowitz's Grading Policy

    8th grade science students will earn their respective grades according to the following

    "total points earned" system:

    Homework 0-10
    Quizzes 10-50
    Quests 50-75

    Tests 75-100+

    Unit Project Points Vary

    GOOGLE CLASSROOM will be used to post any & all daily assignments. The IQWST online program (Activate Learning) along with other resources will be used to implement the science curriculum.

    BE PREPARED with your charged chromebook, a folder for papers, a writing tool (pencil, blue or black ink pen), an independent novel (for reading when requested) and a positive attitude toward learning.
    ASSIGNMENTS must be completed and turned in by the assigned due date & time. Late assignments will not earn full credit, but still should be completed for partial credit by the next class meeting. Every point counts! 
    **For the 2022-2023 school year, Do Nows &/or Exit Tickets cannot be made up. Nor are you penalized for them if absent. Only open during class, Do Nows &/or Exit Tickets are specific to each class. Other assignments can be made up with penalty for late submission in accordance with school absence policy, Usually that's 10% penalty for next class day submission and 50% for anything submitted later. After Trimester 1, no assignments will be accepted after the  absence poilicy date (1 additional day for each day absent)
    ASSESSMENTS such as quizzes, quests, tests & projects will be announced well in advance along with any study guides to allow ample time to review any/all applicable subject material.
