-- Making corrections:
If you scored a 1 on your quiz, you are required to make corrections
If you scored a 2 on your quiz, you are strongly encouraged to make corrections
Corrections can bring your score up to a 2.5
1. Get out your features of maps notes (title, key, scale, compass rose) and your types of maps chart. (They are on my website posting for Thursday, October 8.)
2. Do not erase any wrong answers.
(Seeing what you did wrong can help you learn.)
3. Use a pen or different colored pencil to write the correct answer on the quiz
OR Write the question # and the correct answer on a piece of notebook paper.
4. You may make corrections at home or come in a lunch, after school, or at academic assistance.
