Survival Essay Rewrites

If you are not satisfied with your final grade on the survival essay, a third rewrite is available for those who scored less than 80%.
  • You may only rewrite a third time if you have earned less than 80%.
  • If you are rewriting, you must make all necessary changes using my marks on your rubric and comments on your document.
  • Please make an appointment to meet with me if you do not understand my comments.
  • You may earn up to 80% on this third rewrite.
  • You must turn in the original rubric with the rewrite, or I cannot grade it.
All rewrites are due by the last day of the quarter: Friday, March 31.  

Please bring earbuds to class every day.

We will be starting interim SBAC testing the week of 3/13-3/17.  Students will need to have earbuds with them every day.
