Welcome to Healing Herbology!!
This is a One Term class in which you will be studying Herbology from a Healer's perspective, and you will be learning the deepest secrets of different kind of plants, herbs, fruits, vegetables, flowers, and more! That way, at the end of the class you will be graduating as a Herbology Healer! Aren't you excited?
This will be our class forum, where some discussions and/or extra credit will be held. Please treat your classmates, teacher, and class assistant nicely and respectfully. That way we won't have any problems and we will enjoy our time here much more!
Some important information you have to remember:
This class gives you the opportunity to earn up to 300 points the following way:
4 Assignments (30 points each) = 120 points
4 Extra Credits (30 points each) = 120 points
Final Exam = 30 points
Class Project = 30 points
Total = 300 points
However, to pass this class and earn a Quill you only need to earn 150 points, and some portion of those points should come from the Final Exam, which means that the exam is a MUST. Extra Credit and Special Project are not mandatory.
Homework is due at the end of each month, but if for some reason you need an extension, it will be granted to you if you ask for it at least 3 days before the due date.
Please, send your Assignments and Extra Credits SEPARATELY. The subject of your e-mail should include: Number of Assignment/Extra Credit â€“ HOL ID â€“ House. Example: If I were turning the first assignment, the subject of my e-mail should look like this: â€œAssignment 1 â€“ pr_gus â€“ Ravenclawâ€�, or â€œEC1 â€“ pr_gus â€“ Ravenclawâ€�. Also, please include at the top of your e-mail your HOL Name.
Class e-mail: healing.herbology[at]gmail.com
Just replace the [at] with the @ symbol. All of your homework should be sent to that address.
Healing Herbology also gives you the opportunity to earn up to 4 special awards!!! However it is your job to find out how to earn them! I can only tell you that if you work hard and remain active in the class, by the end of term you will surely find more than one added to your Treasures!
Finally, if you have any question, petition, suggestion or anything else, I ask you to post it in our class forum or send it to me through a HOL message (My HOL ID is pr_gus). Please do not send it to the class e-mail because chances are I won't see it on time. I only check the class e-mail in a weekly basis so if it is something urgent it will probably be too late by the time I see it.
I believe this is all for now! Thanks for your attention and for choosing this class!
Wishing you a terrific term!!
