• To get a B you must earn the points as well as do at least 2 assignments in the B category.

• To get an A you must earn the points as well as do at least 1 assignments in the A category.

Rubric for Oral Defense C Layer

Students will demonstrate their understanding of the goal covered by defending their C layer assignments with an Oral defense.

• First student must show a completed assignment in order to do an oral defense.
• Depending upon the assignment the teacher will tell the student how many questions will be asked them and what each question will be worth. (Example: If the assignment is to do a vocabulary sheet for the unit and it is worth 5 points then teacher might say I will ask you to define five words I pick. Each correct answer will be worth one point.)
• Teacher will ask student and they will give their response.
• Teacher will sign off on work sheet how many points the student earned.
