I'm going to be a first-year art teacher for grades 6-8. My school uses Gradebook and, from what I understand, all assignments equal out to 100%, but are divided into categories to distribute the weight of the grade. So, when it comes to art, I was wondering what would be the best way to break that up since I don't anticipate there being much (if any) homework. I was thinking I would have them keep a journal, starting the class with a writing warm up to get them thinking about the project. I would also want them to take quizzes on relevant vocabulary and art history. Most importantly, of course, would be the actual projects. Thus, I was thinking: Projects 50%, Quizzes 20%, and Journal 30%. Of course, these would be broken down into smaller checkpoint grades. I also wanted to have a sketchbook assignment in place for early finishers so I'm not sure how that would factor in. But does that seem reasonable? What has worked for you all?
