This year I added an in-depth way to assess students for their participation in the classroom.  I have encouraged them to be good stewards of time, their personal items, and the classroom so I have called the grade a stewardship grade. They are awarded 5 points a day if they bring their materials, show up to class on time, help with classroom chores, and are respectful to their peers and their teacher.  I am wondering what you think about this?
