- want to know about extra credit
- want to know about winter break assignments (sorry!)
- want to raise your grade
- want to know anything related to our FIRST SEMESTER FINAL EXAM IN JANUARY
So....you want to take the AP Exam in hopes of scoring some college credit.
Going on my experience from last year, you should raise your grade to at least a 'C' by the end of the semester.
Now, some of you are going "NO WAY is that possible." But it totes is. Many of you have shown improvement in your motivation, ability to complete tasks on-time, and an increase in the quality of your work and your quiz scores. You're thirsty. Good. Stay thirsty.
I want the best, best, best, best for you. Please arrange to see me before break if you need to discuss anything. I want you to enjoy the holidays and your much deserved (and needed! we're all burnt out.) time off. You are aware you have several short assignments over break. Those are all due January 6.
I would like to appeal to those of you who are missing assignments...the dreaded missing work request. Franny had a great idea in class today-read some of my suggested articles (yes, I do that) and complete some article reviews! I would like to extended the assignment further to add that you MUST be able to add 2 paragraphs relating the articles BACK to a SPECIFIC CONCEPT from the unit. See me if interested and I can flush out more of the details with you.
I know this has been long and hard and I want to give a special thank you to those of you who 1) are on-top of your assignments-you keep up with the learning and make wonderful connections! 2) those of you who have been steadily improving-it does not go unnoticed! 3) those of you who come for extra help-it has been a boost to your grades. What a wonderful skill to advocate for yourself and take control over your learning.
You're a great group of students....let's go into the New Year strong! Email me over break with question. If you guys are interested, we could arranged time to do a First Semester Final Review session over break? Comment below if interested.
