Grades Online
If your 4th quarter grade is higher than your semester grade, your 4th quarter is improving your semester grade over 3rd quarter. If, however, your semester grade is higher than your 4th quarter grade, your 4th quarter grade is dragging your semester grade down. Only your semester grades are recorded on your high school transcript, not quarter grades.

-Limit the number of hand shapes used in a story (e.g. "Cow and Rooster")
-A poem that manipulates one of the other parameters of ASL (palm orientation, location, movement, facial expression) or the number of hands used

If necessary, type out notes for your poem in the form of a list that you will turn in and also use when signing in class, as follows:
A-hat

etc.
