John R. Rogers Biology Course
Mrs. Kaplan R203
WELCOME TO MRS. KAPLAN Biology CLASS!
The student knows more than the teacher about what and how he has learned, even if he knows less about what was taught.” --Peter Elbow
What do you need?
2 Spiral notebooks, pencils, pens, and highlighter. You will need to bring your computer everyday.
My grading system is based on the belief that every student can reach excellence! I believe that each student, given the proper instruction and support can succeed in my classroom. My system is based on students demonstrating mastery or proficiency in Biology. In all cases students may revise work in order to achieve and demonstrate mastery. These are then converted to a letter grade scale in the computer. All grades are shown on Power School.
4= Exceeding Standard
3= At Standard
2= Approaching Standard
1= No Evidence of Understanding
= Orange Square is a Missing Assignment
60% is assessments, projects and labs
20% is binder assignments
20% is class participation and homework
We will follow the attendance policy for Rogers High School. All unexcused absences are counted as truancies. You are responsible to do all make-up work.
If absent, it is the student’s responsibility to make up the work. The student may arrange a tutoring time in the afternoon from 2:30 – 3. If want to email me the assignment at firstname.lastname@example.org. All assignments are on PowerSchool and TEAMS.
