Students can access my classroom website via my syllabus or Googling my first and last name. Here, they find many resources for success in my classroom as well as contact information. Please feel free to get a student perspective by viewing my website, here.
Because I believe that grading should be used as a tool to help students access their mastery of a subject and gain accountability, I update their grading system daily, to reflect the most current grades that they earned. Students know that they can log on to the system at home and see the most current account of their grade. This allows them to take the lead and begin steps of intervention if necessary.
I've used our district-wide grading system as a communication point for parents. I regularly send out messages to parents and students in my classes, giving updates on the latest in the classroom, as well as any special events or assignments coming up.
