Student were given their 5th six weeks today. This will enlist their creative side and will be more fun. Once again, students need to be responsible with this obligation and prioritize their time.
Projects assess their knowledge and demonstrate mastery. Failure to do the projects and/or to the best of their ability cheats them out of learning and progressing.
Again, these skills have been spiraled since 6th grade and should be mastered in 8th grade. The projects are to be done completely independently since it is an assessment. Authenticity is key.
I can't wait to see what they do! They will present their projects the last week of the six weeks. This will be a presentation grade.
