******** Important Classroom Procedures! *******
Students in this class will need to bring the following supplies to school each day: pencils, highlighters, and binders. Occasionally we will use calculators, so please be sure to have these handy. We only use pencils to write with in this class. No work in pen or marker will be graded.
All work, including bellwork (notes), homework, and any other handouts will be typed up and hole-punched. All work is graded for correctness, and is required to be kept in some type of binder. Bellwork will be graded usually after # 10 is completed. A checklist will be given to students to check off all bellwork before handing in, and ample time is given to put together and complete any missing or incomplete work. Tutorial for completing missing work, review for tests, as well as extra help on any assignment is offered during 2nd and 8th period electives. Students are encouraged to take advantage of this tutorial opportunity.
Homework assignments are always typed up and labeled as "homework." A due date is always written on the top of the assignment. Students usually have a week to complete these assignments. This allows time for students to come to tutorial if help is needed with homework before it is turned in.
A deduction of a letter grade per day will be taken from any assignment that is turned in past its due date. Students will not receive a zero for homework or any other assignment unless it is not turned in within an appropriate amount of time after the due date. For example, a grade of zero will given for a homework assignment to any student who has not turned in a homework assignment by the time it has been graded and passed back to the class. Zeros at this point may NOT be made up, due to the length of time given, as well as the availability of tutorial help.
Please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions or comments. I am looking forward to a wonderful 2013-2014 year with your students!
