The project will count as a test grade and the presentation of the project will count as a daily grade. Students will be given class time to work on the project on 10/11, 10/12, 10/17 and 10/18. We will begin presenting as soon as students start finishing up their work. The project choices and grading checklists can be viewed on Google Classroom under Mrs. Hulsey's Reading Class.
