Studentsí grades are based on an accumulated-point system. Each graded assignment or activity is assigned a certain number of points based on its complexity and overall importance to the objectives of the course. The grades are weighed using the PGCPS mandated SchoolMax System which will be accessible to both parents and students. The percentages that are figured using this point system are translated into the following categories:
Homework (DAILY) 25%
Written Assignments 50%
Extra-Credit and Make-Up Work:
This course is designed to prepare students for collegiate level courses; therefore, there will be limited opportunity for extra credit and students will be required to submit missed work according to Prince Georgeís County policy following a lawful absence. Students should strive to complete ALL requirements on time. When absent, it is the studentís responsibility to obtain missed assignments.
Purpose of English 11 American Literature:
