Grading Overview

JV Washam's letter grades as they appear on report cards are reflective of student learning as indicated by grade level standards as well as student learning at his/her instructional level. We will follow these scales for both Reading and Writing!

This is the rubric and the grading scale I will use each week to assess the student's post-it homework- making their thinking visible and providing evidence from their text!
