End of the School Year
With the end of the school year approaching here are some things to know:
-Retakes and Make ups can be scheduled (there is a sign up sheet and I have talked about it daily for the past week and a half!) in class. Since I help with ASB, I need to be out helping at lunch with the 8th grade event payments.
-Retakes are going to be structured differently than before. This was agreed upon by the 7th grade Social Studies Teachers in our most recent meeting. Students have been informed of this (it is written front and center on the white board.)
-Last day for retakes and make ups will be Thursday, May 29th
-Final- Will be Friday, May 30th
-Jeopardy - May 28th and May 29th- Students need to have all of their study guides (questions and answers) in class in order to participate. This is not a surprise to any of them, we did the same thing last semester and have a running list of which study guides they should have in class. This is their responsibility.
- I have a no name box with over 40 study guides in it that have not been claimed. If your child thinks they did something they can check the no name box. I show them the stack on a weekly basis, so they know right where it is at :)
Welcome to Mrs. Twiss' Website
Retakes/Makeups will be done on Tuesday's at lunch, if I don't have to do intervention then retakes will be during PRIDE that same day. You must have a retake form done if you want to retake a quiz you did poorly on.
- In order to take a retake, students must fill out a retake form <----- In the locker or available in class. (This requires a parent signature and a few questions to be answered. This will prevent students deciding that day that they want to retake a quiz they have not studied for.)

We will have homework on most nights, please check to make sure that your child has completed the homework that has been assigned for that night. They can also be studying for upcoming quizzes.

Study Guide Grading
Study Guides are not graded for accuracy, but graded on completion. If study guides are not done chances are that the quiz grade will not be as good as it could be!
Questions are assigned on a nightly basis. The following day students will receive stamps for completing the assigned questions on time. The day of the quiz, study guides are turned in.
Study guides are graded based on stamps and corrections made in red pen.
1 point per stamp and 1 point for making corrections.
If a student has no stamps they will automatically be given half credit.
If a student is absent when the study guide is stamped, it is up to them to ask for the stamps they were absent for.
In order for students to participate in Review Jeopardy for the Semester Final, they must have all study guides completed and with them. There will be NO study guide given for the semester final!
