Take 5--Mathematically challenged
This fraction shows my confidence in my math skills; I am scared of the monster math staring at me on the Infinite Campus screen, "You idiot! You thought you had your grades figured out. Ha! What a mess you created!"Snarling, drooling as it waits fangs sharp and hungry to devour the lowly English teacher trying to adjust grades.
I know, not exactly positive thinking. I am thrilled about the idea of work ethic/responsibility/citizenship categories and then the others reflecting actual learning content categories. But, still I am afraid that my skills as a computator will hinder, and ultimately be a crazed mess.
Ok, what's the big deal right? I already have categories and in fact, I have Participation category where I put covering books, bringing in outside reading book, etc. What I am afraid of is the weighting. I visited with Anne this afternoon and she explained it well, so I feel a little better about my future attempt. I just hope that I can sort through my own percentage paradigms and work out a new one--one that works!
