Grading will be done on the IB 8-point scale in each of these four objective categories: Inquiring and Analyzing, Developing Ideas, Creating the solution, and Evaluating. The rubric can be found on my web page at www.tanglewoodms.org . Through the IB program, students will receive a minimum of two grades for each objective category per semester. Successful completion of this course will include maintaining a passing average in each semester.
Tanglewood MS has adopted the following grading scale for converting IB grades to HISD equivalent grades:
0 = 50, missing 1=60 2=65 3=70 4=75 5=85 6=90 7=95 8=100
CLASSROOM EXPECTATIONS AND PROCEDURES
Students are expected to follow all Tanglewood and HISD rules, maintain a positive attitude towards all persons, always do their best work, and ask questions when unsure of themselves. All personal electronic devices (phones, iPads, etc.) are to be turned off and stored in student backpacks at all times during technology classes.
Please feel free to contact me with questions throughout the school year. You may call the school at 713-625- 1411 and leave a message, or send me an email at the address above.
