Students will engage in seminar discussion over the short stories we’ve recently read in class.  Students need to have completed some of the homework in order to participate in seminar.  If they have zeroes for homework, they will go to alternative to do a make-up assignment before returning to seminar. See seminar grade rubric for more details. Seminar is one of those assignments that cannot be made up.  Students will receive either a blank or an ‘abs’ in parent connect – absence grades do not affect overall grades.  If students receive an “-ot” grade, that means they were off-topic during seminar.
