8th Grade Portfolio Details and Checklist BINDER AND POWERPOINT DUE 5-12-2021

Due to the unique circumstances of this school year, we have scaled down the 8th grade Portfolio project.

 

The 8th grade Portfolio is done in two parts:

  • For the first part of the project, each 8th grade student will put together a Portfolio Binder that consists of 36 paragraphs (2 per sub-level SLE) and pieces of evidence that demonstrate their mastery of the school-wide learning expectations (SLEs). All Portfolio paragraphs will be turned in on Google Classroom & the 8th graders will have dedicated times in class each week to write and edit their paragraphs. A copy of the Portfolio paragraph deadlines checklist is attached for your reference & was given to the class. Each student will turn in 2 paragraphs per week (most will be turned in on Fridays) and all paragraphs will be entered as a religion grade in Gradelink. 

  • The second part of the project consists of students choosing 12 of their best pieces of evidence (three from each group of SLEs) and creating a PowerPoint (PPT) presentation to go along with the evidence. The PowerPoint will be used during formal presentations of Portfolio projects in May.

 
  • Both the binder & PowerPoint (PPT) are due Wednesday, May 12th

  • Presentations will take place on Tuesday, May 18th & Wednesday, May 19th

I hope you had a great summer! Our STA faculty and staff are confident you will have a fantastic school year. We are busy planning lessons and activities that will challenge our students to grow academically, spiritually, and socially.

 

Please mark your calendar to join our Junior High teachers on Tuesday, August 25th from 5:00-6:00 for our Junior High Distance Learning Orientation Meeting. Parents and students are invited to attend. Please park your vehicle in front of the church and walk towards the front office. The orientation will take place where we would normally have morning assembly, which is directly in front of the flagpole on the blacktop area. Please bring your own chair(s) as this orientation will be held outside as we continue to practice social distancing. This orientation will cover our Distance Learning Plan for 7th and 8th grade, until we are able to return to school in person. We hope to see you there!
