Flipgrid assignment update -This assignment was originally set to be ungraded. We may use this as a platform in the future, so you will have to show you know how to use it. Therefore a grade of 10 points has been assigned to the assignment. (easy “A”) Google Classroom is linked to the grade book now, so once you record and post your “flip” you need to hit turn in so I can give you a grade. You do not need to attach the video in GC – I can see them on “the grid.”
