Participation Grade
Once a month you will receive a participation grade. You are not allowed to work on another class, play games, or watch videos, overly socialize, etc. If you're done with an assignment before it's due, you can choose something off our Choice Board HERE. If you stay busy it's an easy 100. If you don't, then points will be deducted. I'm keeping track!

Grading Info
If you just throw something together quickly, don't expect the same grade as someone who spends the full amount of time making something special. If your work is "ok" you will get a C; if it's "good" you get a B; if it's "amazing" you will get an A.
