1. Respect: Be kind to each other.
ü When someone else is talking listen.
ü Think before you speak or act.
ü Keep your hands to yourself and your own stuff.
2. Food & Drinks: You make a mess, you clean it up.
ü Drinks are allowed, but you are responsible to take care of any spills.
ü Food is only allowed on special occasions and must be okay'd prior to bringing anything in.
3. Assignments: All assignments are due the date determined when assigned.
ü Work should be completed at the beginning of class not ½ way through the class period.
ü If they are not ready at the beginning of the class hour they will be considered late.
ü Late work can be turned in for ½ credit (50% of possible points) and is due 1 week prior to the end of the term.
ü If absent missed assignment(s) are due 3 days after you return to school.
ü Extra credit assignments will be provided sporadically, but all regularly assigned work needs to be completed before handing in extra credit.
4. Note Taking: Is required!
ü Exams questions are taken directly from lecture material, so yes taking notes is important.
ü At the end of each unit “Notes” notebooks will be collected and graded.
ü Notes turned in must be hand written and done by you (no typing).
5. Leaving the Classroom: A hall pass is available.
ü Only one person can be gone at a time.
ü Pass may only be used at the end of class IF we are done with lecture or activities.
ü If leaving is imperative to participating in class (need notebook, assignment, ect) you will be able to go “once,” but next time will result in a noon detention - Please come prepared!
6. Class Dismissal: The bell does not signal for you to get up and leave.
ü Three simple steps: 1- Room needs to be clean (paper off the floor, books put away, ect), 2- Everyone must be seated in a desk chair., 3- Desk must be straight and in the right rows.
ü I will give you the go ahead once steps 1-3 are done…if you want to be released right when the bell rings get these things done ahead of time.
7. In Class Correcting: Homework, quizzes, ect.
ü Desks have to be cleared except for a RED pen.
ü Be honest, not marking items wrong or giving an incorrect score is considered cheating.
8. Quizzes & Exams:
ü All materials not needed to complete the exam/quiz needs to be under your desk.
ü Blue or Black pen or a pencil may be used.
ü There is no talking during quiz/exam. To ask a question you need to raise your hand.
ü You must remain in your seat until you are ready to turn in your quiz/exam (no getting up to go to the bathroom or sharpen your pencil).
