Professionalism

  • Professionalism Rubric

    Professionalism can be defined many ways. Your ability to perform professionally in class directly relates to your readiness and future success in College and your Careers. While this should be an "easy" assignment grade, it may be the most important of them all.

    For the purposes of grading in this ICE course, your professionalism will be evaluated each time we have a Journal Check. This will allow us to have a conversation about your recent performance and I will offer feedback on how you might continue to grow to improve.

    Copy the Rubric between the lines and paste it into a document along with your Journal Rubric.

    Professionalism has 3 components:
    • Attendance [__/5 pts]
      • attendance is related to participation
      • 1 point is taken for each absence
      • with teacher approval, you may spend a class period worth of time outside of class on a class project to earn the point back. This requires a pre-approved plan and evidence of completion.
