8th grade- Test remediation

ATTENTION STUDENTS!

With the end of Quarter 2 fast approaching, I’m sure some of you are asking, ‘What can I do to bring up my social studies grade?”

If that’s you – Listen up! Here’s the deal…

On Monday, 12/18 – I will hold a “Test Retake Day”  in class. Any student may retake ANY test from Quarter 2 that they choose. You may even retake more than one! However, in order to retake the test, you MUST complete the remediation assignment for that test & turn it in with a PARENT SIGNATURE in class on 12/18. In other words, no signed remediation assignment = no test retake! Test NEW test grade will REPLACE the old test grade – but only if it’s higher!

The remediation assignment for each test can be found below….you must print it out, handwrite the answers, and turn in on 12/18 with parent signature. If you can’t print your own copy, see me, and I will provide you with one. You’ll need to access the Digital Textbook to complete the assignment http://www.gpb.org/education/georgia-studies/digital-textbook
