    • Students and I grade homework using the "classwork scoring guide." I grade students' papers using the appropriate "persuasive writing rubric".  Please see links to the left to view these rubrics.
    • All of my classes are linked to Google Classroom where students can receive and turn in classwork, as well as view videos, discussions, and images that extend the discussion.  Ask your student to log into Classroom to see what we've been doing.  I can also send you a weekly report at your request.
