9th Grade News Update - December 5, 2016

The 9th grade Data and Assessment Team has been studying the effects of homework. We have been reading and analyzing research that supports both sides of this topic.
During the week of December 5th, each 9th grader will take a homework survey about the four core classes (English, math, science, and social studies). The purpose of the survey is to gather information from the student's perspective about how much homework is being assigned, how much homework is being completed at home, and whether or not the homework benefits the student. We will also collect information about how the student feels regarding feedback from teachers and the usefulness of each class in his or her long-term education.

All 9th Grade News Updates are Archived in the 9th Grade News tab at the top of the Century Panther Press main page. These updates provide information and provide opportunities for feedback on what Century staff is doing to focus on the issues that impact the grade 9 transition and help the class of 2020 realize its potential.

Every time the 9th Grade News tab is updated, an article will be posted on the Century Panther Press and the Rochester Century High School Facebook page. Make sure you sign up for "Follow by Email" on the main page of the Century Panther Press and Follow the Rochester Century High School Facebook page so you don't miss any updates.
