Questions from a reader:
"The 7th/ 8th grade teachers at my lunch table today were talking
about a writing prompt that the board has mandated that they give the
kids next week. I'm not sure if it's for 7th or 8th grade. Anyway,they said that they were told ("board mandate") that this one prompt
should count as at least 50% of the students' 4th quarter writing
grade. Of course, they are not going to follow that mandate, but I
find it hard to believe that anyone would mandate such a thing. Who
knows though. Any truth to that?"
cards obsolete, or will we now do both? My principal doesn't know.
Cum. cards take forever, so I'm hoping for good news here. Will we
even be entering cumulative grades into IMPACT?"
Anyone know the answers?
