For this class, students will need:
- A 3 ring binder stocked with plenty of lined paper. This may be a section in a larger binder.
- During the year, important handouts will have a star placed on them in the upper right-hand corner. These papers should be saved all year.
- At least one highlighter (any color)
- Post-it notes (at least 3"x3"/any color)
On Friday, students reviewed brainstorming skills when they started designing their shelfies. To reinforce the idea of coming up with MANY ideas, every student wrote down at least one possible rule for our class.
After going through all their ideas, I narrowed them down to the following rules:
1. Rspect ourselves, peers, teachers, students, and materials.
2. Be positive.
3. Always do your best.
2. Teacher Detention
3. Office Referral
* Parent phone call/e-mail at any time
Before the bell rings, take care of anything unrelated to class, such as getting a drink, using the bathroom, sharpening your pencil, etc.
When the bell rings, you should be in your seat working on the Do Now. (You will need a pass from your previous class if you’re late). The Do Now will be written on the board when you enter, and we will discuss it as a class shortly after the bell rings. The Do Now will be collected and graded at least once a week, so you need to make sure you always complete your work.
If you need to leave the class at any time, raise your hand to ask permission first and then sign out on the yellow sheet at the front of the room.
At the end of the period, you will be directed to pack up your materials and stay in your seat until dismissed.
Homework will be given, checked, and graded on a regular basis. It will serve to emphasize important concepts we’ve learned in class as well as prepare for upcoming material. Since homework will be important, it is expected that it will be done. If it is not handed in on the day it is due, it could have a negative effect on the students' ability to follow along in class and progress toward full understanding of a skill.
It will be your responsibility to make up missed work when you are absent. Check the Homework Portal, e-mail me, ask in class, and check the “Absent?” folders to get anything you missed. You will have the number of days you were absent to make up missed work, and it is your responsibility to turn it in.
