Overll i did pretty well throughout the second quarter. However, the whole idea with the Lit grades and the updating could have gone a little better. I do not understand the grade that I have right now in lit, or the way the updating of grades work. All of my other classes went really smoothe. I'm sure i'll get the american lit problem figured out.

I think the second quarter was good. I did really good. I just read the material that was given to us and made sure I did all my homework on time so I wouldn't have to worry about making Homework up at the last second. That would be my advice.

I thought the second quarter was a little harder but I kind of started to slack off because I got a good grade the first quarter. But two main things to get decent grade in that class are to read the stories every night and do the homework. So when it becomes test time you know what the stories are about and towards the end of the quarter you don't have to be worried about making up homework. Just next quarter I have to stay more focused on my homework and reading daily. So I will bring my final grade up.

I think i did average the second quarter, and personally i was not satisfied with my grades. Next quarter i am going to take notes when ever possible and review them after school everyday.

I did better than i thought in the second quater. I almost failed every test and quiz or atleast close to failing and i am still doing pretty good. I think is because of the homework. If you do your homework and even turn it in late, you will definitely pass.

I thought the second quarter was alittle harder like it is every year for me. There is alot more work and wrestling season has started which keeps me distracted. The next quarter I want to improve and to do that I need to keep focused.

The 2nd quarter was a dissapointment for me. I really got lazy at times and didnt do that well. There were some great stories that we read though.

Overall I really liked the second quarter. I liked it because my grade was better than I had for the first quarter. Since I did well during the second quarter I plan on continuing. I believe my success during the second quarter came from me doing all my homework and on time, and hopefully it continues.

I think i did decent in the second quarter. I think i could have done better. I had a few zeroes but overall it was a good quarter.

I felt as though the second quarter was long, and tiresome. It also consisted of alot of work. In the 3rd quarter, I will work on my consistency with homework and quizes.

Overall, I am pretty content with how I did during the second quarter. However, It is clear that I did better during the first quarter. The main reason for this is because of the fact that the stories that we were assigned to read this quarter were more difficult and in depth than last quarters'. However, as I said, I believe that I did fairly well this quarter. My technique is simply to do the homework that is assigned and study for the tests. If you follow this technique to the best of your ability, you shouldn't end the quarter with less than an average grade.

Overall I did worse than I would have liked because I didn't do my homework. Homework killed my grade, even though I did good on everything else homework destroyed my grade. Homework..Homework..Homework!!!!!!

Overall i did not do well this quarter. I did not do well because i was being very lazy, did not turn in home work on time, and i also just didn't study as hard as i should have. I'm going to work harder next quarter to try and change all that.

Nick Feurer said...

The second quarter was worse then my first quarter. I became lazy and stopped doing homework which is most of Mr. Dutrow's grades. I also should have written more for the essays that we had to write for many stories.

I thought the 2nd quarter was harder than the first. I ended up with an A, which isn't all that hard especially if you follow these three rules. Do homework thoroughly and on time. Write the notes in class before a test, and listen during class. And finally, you need to read the books and pieces of literature.

The second quarter was more difficult than the first for me. I felt as if there were more assignments and more tests. The winter break although long, did not benefit me any because when I got back, I did not feel like getting back to my studies. I am looking forward to next quarter for a fresh start. To improve my grades next quarter, I will have to crack down on the homework and studies right after school because I tend to procrastinate. This tecnique for me will help me the most.

I think i didn't do as well as I did the first quarter. This is mostly because I think I gave more attention to reading than I did in the second.

KarlGreen said...

i actually did the worst i have ever done at saint joe and i am very upset with myself. I know that if i dont procratinate on my homework and need to do my work on time and up to par.

bmore10123 said...

I think i did ok in this quarter just like i did ok in the first quarter. If i just put a little more time into this class i could easily have an a instead of settling with a b. My advice to anyone reading this in to turn in hw on time and to study for quizzes/tests.

I thought I did ok this quarter. This quater was a lot harder because of all the short stroies. I have trouble remembering things that happen in short stories. First quarter i felt had easier reads and less homework.

10jenglehart said...

I did really bad this quarter and thats because I slacked off on studying and doing the homework and the way i can do better next quarter is by studying alot for tests and turn in homework on time. The material was a little confusing at first but after we discussed it, its really clear to me.

Bennett Wolfe said...

The second quarter was not all that bad I didn’t dislike anything. But my grade was not that great because I didn’t do my homework. If I did my homework then my grade would be fine. This quarter I still have the same problem but I’m working on it.
