    I'm not sure of the specifics (as in what we grade) since I am new, but I do know this..

    We have 6-12 grades per subject (including Sci/Social) per 6 weeks.

    Though in ELA/Reading I think we have 24 grades since that gets broken down into specifics....

    sort of:

    My s.s. and science curriculum really just consists of reading from a text. I added a few extenders like a craft project here and there or a worksheet that highlights the parts of a plant for example, but for the most part all my students get an "E" or "A" in both.

    Our S.S. & science are mostly reading as well so I will be doing a lot of supplementing. I also have to make up my own tests. EEK! i've never done this before so any pointers would be appreciated!
    How often do you give tests? All our other subjects are weekly so I guess that's what I should do.

    As for grades per week, do you record 1 test grade & 1 seatwork grade or what? Our curriculum says not to count classwork as a grade since that's used as part of the learning process, the seatwork is review of what's been taught & is independent work.
