The attached image is the first of two pages from the handouts sent to me.
Have a great week.
This image is a screenshot from a sample Rewrite I did with the class. The first question was for the Grade 7s and 8s and the second question was, specifically, for the Grade 8s. With a Rewrite, the students must first identify what they did wrong and then correctly answer the question. I suppose the most important thing is for the students to understand the question, in order to answer it. The students are provided the opportunity to ask questions about the test, in class or after school.
Here is the list of students who scored a grade of 70% or higher on the test. It is still possible for those with marks below 70 % to improve their grades, but they must commit to completing the Rewrites which involve some effort!

There are a number of students who have not completed many assignments and work. You will obviously see this observation noted on the upcoming Progress Report. When your son or daughter has not homework, this may be true, but ask them if they have caught up with the work that is being tracked by the Homework Tracking chart in the classroom.
