45% Focus & Participation: This grade category is collected in class based on questions asked to individual students. Questions are first asked to the whole class and time is allowed for discussion and sharing answers. Then specific students are chosen to respond. Every student has time to formulate a response. These grades cannot be revised, but they will average out over each quarter.
