I'm making my syllabus for my ninth graders and I am trying to figure out how to weight each of my grades. How do teachers reach this kind of outcome: 1. Participation/attendance/behavior 10% 2. Journals/ Class Work 20% 3. homework 20% 4. quizzes and tests 25% 5. book reports and projects 25% I'm probly just going to go with a points system because I don't get this. Can someone explain. How do you follow these percentages with your grading?
