UNIT 1 MATERIALS


Below are the two documents that tell you all you need to know about Unit 1. The first document is the overall grading sheet for the Unit 1 Portfolio -- it shows you exactly what is included in your Unit 1 Portfolio grade and how many points each element is worth. The second document is one I handed out in class a little while ago. It contained some errors (like the dates for the individual conferences were wrong), but I have now fixed those errors. The second document is the one with the detailed instructions for all of the Unit 1 assignments and the rubrics for each assignment.
