French 1

NOTE ON CONJUGUEMOS!!!   Madame will not  ‘look into’ any individual Conjuguemos scores entered in the Gradebook if you approach her with “I think I did it… Will you check it out?”
If you ‘think you did it’, double check the assignment via the website AND the Conjuguemos site for…
1) …If you did, indeed, do it.  (Make sure you are looking at the right assignment!)
2) Did you do the required time?
3) Did you get the minimum percentage?
If any of the above criteria were not met, that’s why you didn’t get credit for it.
…If you are 100% sure that ALL the above requirements have been met and are 100% sure the grade entered was incorrect, then Madame will look into it. If not, you have just had a great opportunity to learn how to better approach it next time!  🙂
