Feedback From
Students:

How this task will be graded will be by completion. If the


student finishes the task and emails the teacher they will be
given the mark. The teacher can then assess what needs to be
worked on and if there needs to be explained again in the later
classes. The teacher will look at these after school and assess
whether the student understood the concept or not.

together by having them turn off their monitors. The teacher
will explain the different parts of Assignment #4. First the
students will brainstorm and plan the newsletter. Next they will
research the different aspects they will include in their
newsletter. The students will then begin working on their
assignment. After they will proofread and edit their final copy.
