Students need to:
Give their name and their age, list two things (nouns) they like and two things (nouns) they don't like, 2 things they like to do (verbs) and 2 things they do not like to do (verbs). They also need to draw a cover page for this, with pictures of themselves doing the things they like to do. Any of this missing will result in points being taken off.
Note to parents: IB projects will not be graded quickly, just like the IB pen pal letter. I keep them with me, and they are turned in to Mrs. Tomlinson, our IB coordinator as student examples that are sent in to the IB people in charge. Therefore, parents, if you see an IB project with no grade entered: it is NOT missing. If there is a 0, then yes, it is missing and was not turned in. If there is no grade posted, it just hasn't been graded. The EA+ grade book marks things as missing if there is no grade. It is not in fact missing, just not graded. I check when things are turned in, and if it were not turned in, then I would enter a 0 as a grade, until it is turned in. I hope this clears up any confusion, as I hear from students being asked by their parents why things are missing. I did send out a class message on EA+ grade books, but not all parents received it.
IB projects take a long time to grade, and are unfinished works, since students will continuously add to them throughout the year, as they learn more vocabulary and grammar and are able to do more with their French.
