Calculation of Final Grade for Logs Summer 2014:
In light of the changes in the number of pieces for the Literature Program found in the Halima document which was publicized in June 2013, there will be three alternatives for the final calculation of the Log for Moed Summer 2014 ONLY.
Following are the three alternative ways for calculating your students’ Logs for Summer 2014:
Alternative #1: Include only the 6 required pieces according to the new calculation page in the handbook and on the excel spreadsheets on the TLC site.
Alternative #2: If you have already taught more poems than is necessary, count the student’s best poem grades and hand in only the 6 required pieces.
Alternative #3: If you have already taught all of the short pieces and only have the play left to do, you can either choose alternative 1 or 2 or hand in the entire number of pieces with the old calculation page (note: the excel spreadsheets on the TLC site are only for the new 6-piece programs)
As of Summer 2015, all Logs MUST include the required number of pieces and genres stipulated in the updated Summer 2013 Literature Teachers’ Handbook.
