• Grade Distribution
         
       keys of knowledge
     
    I will use the following percentages in order to calculate grades in my social studies classes.
     60% Major Grades (Examples of a major grades are tests or projects.  There are fewer of these grades during a grading period; therefore, each grade counts considerably more than a minor grade would).
     
    40% Minor Grades  (An example of a minor grade is a daily classwork grade.  There are more of these grades during a grading period than the major grade category).
