What is a Sketch Project?Sketch projects are usually given on Mondays and due on Fridays.Sketch projects will be written on the board and stay on the board for the duration of the assignment. The due date, description and examples will also be shown on the board.Sketch projects are for students to complete in class when they have extra time. If they get done with a project early, they can work on their sketch project. If they do not have extra time in class during that week, they will need to complete the sketch project at home.It is due on the due date - NO EXCEPTIONS!
All sketch projects are worth 20 points.
