In order to create the "right conditions for learning" each student is required to perform a classroom job during one of the marking periods this year.
The purpose of these jobs is to help foster responsibility, extend their learning and create a variety of opportunities as well as a positive classroom climate.
Students are given a class participation grade at the end of the quarter they complete their classroom job. If they complete the job in a highly responsible manner extra credit of 3 points is added directly onto the quarter grade that the job is completed. Extra credit points are determined by myself and awarded at the end of the quarter.
