2. Evaluation: The Hope Life Skills class introduces and attempts to develop the following skills and attitudes: empathy, respect, responsibility, accountability, hard work, perseverance, the courage to extend oneself out of our comfort zone and resilience. I am asking you to evaluate your performance in this class for the first two months of this school year based on criteria related to the aforementioned skills and attitudes like responsibility and respect. Please send me the grade you believe corresponds to your performance from the grade criteria below no later than Tuesday, November 1st, by 11:59pm. Please use the grade criteria below to determine a letter grade which is an honest and objective reflection of your class performance:
A: Perfect attendance and always on time. For those days and times you were absent or late, you ALWAYS text or emailed Mr Cronin to inform him of your tardiness or absence beforehand. You have completed every homework assignment. AND, you have been a class host for at least one class or have asked at least a question of most class guests who have visited our class.
B: Only been absent one or two classes and late a few times at most. For those few days and times you were absent or late, you ALWAYS text or emailed Mr Cronin to inform him of your tardiness or absence. You’ve completed almost every homework assignment and you often ask a question of some of the guests who have visited our class.
C: You are often absent or late. You rarely text or email Mr Cronin when you were going to be late or absent before the class. You have done some of the homework assignments and sometimes you ask a question of a guest.
D: You rarely do homework assignments. You are usually absent or late to class. You’ve never asked a question of any guest who have visited our class.
Thank you. I look forward to reading your responses.
