    Class Rules and Procedures:

    Class Expectations


    Entering Class:  Come into the classroom quietly.  Begin the opening warm-up activity.  You will have only five minutes to complete this task before we move on.  Bring all supplies needed each day.  I respect you enough to come prepared every day for our time together, and I expect the same from you.


    Attendance:  You need to be in class every day so that you do not miss any important information; however, if you are absent for any reason, it is your responsibility to come to me regarding make-up work.


    Tardies:  When the tardy bell rings, you should be in your seat for roll check.  Excessive tardies will result in enforcement of school policy on tardies.


    Behavior: You will follow campus rules and those specific to my classroom.  Inappropriate behavior will result in consequences ranging from warnings or removal of privileges to parent contact or office referral depending on the frequency and nature of the offense.  REMEMBER RESPECT GOES BOTH WAYS!


    Tutoring:  If you need to see me for extra help, you must make contact with me prior to ensure I will be here.  I will be here most mornings by 7:30 and will stay in the afternoons until 4:30.


    Weight of Grades:  50% (minor grade) of your grade is based on class work/ homework, worksheets, discussions, or warm-up activities.  50% (major grade) of your grade is based on tests, projects, or essays.  



    Extra Information


            *Daily work can be done in pen (blue or black ink) or pencil.  Some work, such as final copies of essays or projects must be done in pen.


            *Late work is accepted on a case by case basis; do not make a habit of it – an assignment is due when it is due – period.


            Plagiarism and cheating are not tolerated, ever, and if proven will result in a ZERO for that assignment, whether a minor or major grade.  “Plagiarism” means taking and using (ideas, passages, quotes, etc.) another’s work while representing it as your own.








    Grading Procedures:  We have bell work everyday that is turned in at the end of the week for a grade.  Due to the amount of material we must get through, we will average a chapter a week.  Reviews will be handed out Thursday and in some instances on Friday depending on the length of the chapter. Test will be given on Friday or Monday.

    Grade breakdown is as follows:     Daily        50%

                                                           Projects   0%
