Digital Literacy Addendum

Course Description:

This course is a foundation to computer literacy. Students will have the opportunity to use technology and develop skills that encourage creativity, critical thinking, productivity, and collaboration.

Grading Procedures:

DAILY ATTENDANCE IS CRITICAL FOR SUCCESS IN THIS CLASS.  If an absence does occur, it is the student's responsibility to make sure their work is made up before the unit closes.  The student will earn a grade based on the following:

  • Assignments - 50%
  • Projects/Exams - 50%

Make Up Policy:

All work must be turned in before the end of a unit.  Students missing class because of vacation, must make up work prior to the absence.

Arrangements for Help Outside of Class Time:

We want EVERY student to succeed.  We are available 30 minutes before and after school.  Please let us know if you want to meet so we can plan accordingly.

Citizenship Grade:

The citizenship grade is based on the school PROWL Code of Conduct.  All students start with a satisfactory grade. Honors grades are reserved for those students who are often found helping students outside their own circle of friends, without being asked.  The Citizenship grade will be lowered with infractions of the school Code of Conduct.

Movie/Media:

Movies will only be used to support learning material and state curriculum.  The following movies may be shown, in full or in part, to support the curriculum:  Ferdinand, Hugo, Second Hand Lions, The Sandlot, and Wonder.

Jordan School District policy requires advance notice before showing these movies. If you would like your student to be given an alternate assignment, contact Miss Curtis or Mrs. DeLand within one week of the first day of class.
