NOTE: Journal Entries/discussion, Exit Tickets and warm up activities go toward the overall Class Participation Grade. If those items are not completed in class it will negatively effect the student’s grade. Likewise participation in all Large and Small Group activities goes toward overall Class Participation Grade. These are Formative activities that count 40 % toward the Theater grade. If a student does not finish their in class written assignments such as Journal Entry or Exit Ticket, they may take it home to finish and turn in during the next theater class. If a student needs extra assistance, please talk to Mrs. Stewart for alternative assignments.
NOTE: Graded performances generally are Summative grades and will count 60% toward the overall Theater grade. Performances are important in the Drama classroom, but Alternative assignments are available if needed.
