Welcome to Mrs. Twiss' Website
- Starting this week... Retakes/Makeups will be done on Tuesday's at lunch. You must have a retake form done if you want to retake a quiz you did poorly on.
- In order to take a retake during lunch, 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 shortly before lunch that they want to retake a quiz they have not studied for.)
- We will no longer have a separate Vocabulary Quiz, vocab will now be incorporated into the chapter quiz.
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!
