Question of the Week: What if you were given the opportunity to have direct input into your Citizenship Report Card?
What you need to know & consider before telling me what you deserve:
Work Habits: This standard applies to the general work habit stuff. I will be considering things like - Have you completed the blog postings? Do the postings you have done reflect any effort? Do you come to class on time? Do you have good attendance in general? Do you participate actively and willingly in class (when we do have discussions)? Citizenship requirements are minimal, so if you have made no effort to complete blog postings - then you are not going to be able to convince me that you deserve a 3 or 4.
Personal/Social Development: This standard applies more directly to Emotional Intelligence. I will be considering - How are your peer to peer interactions on a daily basis? Peer to teacher interactions? Quality and depth of blog postings? What is the extent of your contributions to our school community as a whole? Are you enthusiastic and positive about school? Do your choices and decisions reflect an understanding of the Seven Habits? Is the quality of your character evident in everything that you do?
This week, for your posting, you have the opportunity to influence my decision. Based on the Criteria above - write me a statement indicating what you deserve in the categories of Work Habits and Personal/Social Development. Include examples where possible (ie. I have completed all of the blog postings or I helped to organize and advertise our Halloween dance and that shows that I am contributing positively to our school community.)
Keep in mind that I also get a say - so just because you say you deserve a 4 doesn't mean I will be in agreement.
Be PROACTIVE - Take this opportunity to convince me!
