Course Description: Welcome to a new and exciting year at PCHS! The Interior Design class is designed to help you learn more about buying and decorating a house. We will be having a great year – discussing everything from flooring to wall treatments to furniture styles. Bring a positive attitude and lots of questions to class every day. These two things are important components to learning. As instructors, we will do our part to make our classroom comfortable and safe.

The units of study for Interior Design will be thematic. Topics will include: elements/principles of design, color theory, developing a floor plan, housing/furniture styles, creating a piece of furniture, floor covering, and window/wall treatment. lighting, and designing layouts/scale drawings.

Evaluation:
At the end of the marking period, Mrs. Tucker will calculate students’ grades from  quizzes, projects, and class asssignments.  Letter grades will be assigned by the scale below.  

Student scores that result in .05 or higher should be rounded up.  The following percentage scale applies.
 
100 - 91.5  = A
91.4 - 89.5 = A-
89.4 - 87.5 = B+
87.4 - 81.5 = B
81.4 - 79.5 = B-
79.4 - 77.5 = C+
77.4 - 71.5 = C 
71.4 - 69.5 = C-
69.4 - 67.5 = D+
67.4 - 61.5 = D
61.4 - 59.5 = D-
59.4 - 0      = E
 
Grades will be rounded up only to the tenth place during this calculation.  Students will only earn a passing grade for a marking period if they achieve at or above 59.45%, which rounds to 59.5%.

TO CALCULATE FINAL SEMESTER GRADE
The final semester grade is based on a composite of two nine-weeks’ grades and the final examination/culminating assessment/project.  Each nine weeks is worth approximately 43%, and the semester exam/project or District Culminating Activity assessment is worth approximately 14%.
