Missed Class? Need Notes/Assignments?
CONTACT INFORMATION
My telephone number is 706-864-6189, Ext. 42424. My email is stephanie.davis@lumpkinschools.com. I am available after school for assistance, but I do need advance notice. The day before is fine. I am available from 3:15 to 4:00 or later if a student or parent needs to meet with me. I do ask that you make an appointment so our time can be spent efficiently. Email is the best way to contact me; I do return all emails within 24 hours during the week, and I do check my email during the weekend, but generally not until Sunday night. I will do whatever I can do make myself available to parents and to students with advance notice of at least 24 hours.
What's Up? :)
8/22/17 - We are starting an extended text- "Surviving HItler". This will NOT be a unit on the Holocaust, but will be an exploration of plot, characterization, and how point of view impacts plot. There will be some vocabulary quizzes as well as quizzes on plot elements/POV/and characterization. A summative assessment will be given 8/29/17 over these spiraled concepts.
First quiz grade on Characterization and Conflict! We took this today 8/15/17. Some students did not do as well as I hoped, but my main goal is for them to understand the concepts. I will give them an assignment tomorrow that they can do to further their understanding. I will replace the quiz grade with the make up assignment. Note: if you are going on the Notes site, you just need to download from the file to open them.

GRADES
Dear Parent/Guardians/Students,
If I do not have a grade for a student, whether it be because they are absent (excused or unexcused) or have simply not turned it in, I put in a "0". I know it may not seem fair, but if I don't, the assignment tends to be forgotten. Students who have an excused absence have five school days from the date of the assignment to complete and turn in. My ultimate goal is for my students to learn, and assignments provide both formative and summative evidence of that learning. Therefore, they are important, and having a zero for a missing one reminds us all to get it done. I am always glad to talk to anyone regarding a missing assignment and will do all I can to help you get it in. Email or call. :) stephanie.davis@lumpkinschools.com/706-864-6189 Ext. 42424 Please note grading policy on this page.
