Ms. Huang's Class Rules and Attendance Policy

 

你好!(Ni Hao, Hello in Chinese)

I am so excited that you are here!  We will have a fun, educational, and overall fantastic school year here at South Broward High School.  I will do everything I can to ensure a successful year of learning Mandarin Chinese.

Guidelines for Success:

A successful foreign language experience requires a lot of classroom participation. Students are expected to work cooperatively in groups or with a partner, sharing their thinking, as well as listening respectfully to the ideas of others.

Home works and all classroom assignments should be done neatly and turn in on time. The make-ups and Homework tutoring is available from 2:40 – 3:40 pm Monday through Friday in my classroom.

If you are ABSENT, it is your responsibility to find out what you missed and get the assignment completed. Students have two class days to make up the work for each excused absence, after returning to school. Work that was assigned prior to an absence is due upon return to class. “Z’s” will be entered in pinnacle for missing work until it is turned in.

Grading Policy:

  1. Homework 15%
  2. Classwork 15%
  3. Quizzes 15%
  4. Unit Tests/Projects  40%
  5. Participations 15% ( if you are unexcused absent , daily paticipation grade will be 0 )

Grading Scale: 90-100% - A 80-86% - B 87-89% - B+ 70-76% - C 77-79% - C+ 60-66-D 67-69-D+
