Assignments should be completed before classes start - Tuesday, January 23, 2018
All work must be in agreement with Graded’s Vacation Assignments/Reading Policy (See Student Handbook)
Since homework is designed to “assist students in consolidating their ideas and prepare them to participate in class at a more meaningful level”, there should not be graded summative assessments immediately upon return to class.
Our belief that reading is important for language development means that vacation reading assignments in English, Portuguese, Spanish, and French classes are acceptable. Preferably students will have some choice (possibly chosen from a reading list) and no assignment.
The IB HL courses require additional work outside of the normal school year so these classes may require work during the vacation.
New students have a minimum of 2 weeks to complete the vacation assignments.
The total amount of time students spend on homework for each course should be reasonable. Please consider that the student may have other assignments.
Students are expected to complete work in some classes during each long holiday. Specific questions about the assignments can be directed to the teacher or department head.
