    50% of grade (minor grades) will be participation is class discussions and activities.  We will also have weekly reflections for students to reflect on their progress towards their personal behavior goals.  Everyday we will have a Daily Journal where students will either write something or draw in their journals.  They will have the options to share or not at the beginning of each class.  

    50% of grade (major grades) will be major projects dealing with social skills and goal setting for success in the program.  There will be one project each six weeks.

    Students will also be allowed to use this class period each week for catching up academically in other classes.
