    Class Participation:

     

                Class participation includes attending class, being prepared for class, completing homework assignments, completing class work assignments and contributing positively to the classroom environment.

                Each student will begin the quarter with 100 class participation points.  Points will be deducted for inappropriate behavior and being unprepared for class.   Students will lose 1 point for each time they are late to class,  5 points for sleeping during class, and 5 points for having out or using a cell phone.  Points can be earned when a student goes above and beyond what is asked of him or her.

                Students that have 8 or more unexcused absences will receive a zero, 0, in class participation. 
                If a cell phone is taken from a student it will turned into the student's grade level office.

                 

    Homework/Class work:

     

                There will be a considerable amount of homework and class work.  There will be time in class to begin assignments.  However, the student should be completing the assignment at home.  It is necessary that the assignment is completed when the assignment is given.  This will ensure understanding of the material. All assignments will be given a point value.  Each homework will be worth 5 points unless stated otherwise. A student can receive 5 points for completing the assignment, 2.5 points for completing half the assignment or 0 points for not completing the assignment.
     
           Please Do Nows
                Each student will receive a spiral notebook for this class only.  This book will not leave the classroom.  Students will complete Please Do Now problems prior to the start of class.  These  notebooks will be graded on completeness throughout the semester. All PDN's missed from absences must be made up before the end of each quarter.

     

    Quizzes/Tests:

     

                Quizzes and tests will be announced beforehand.  Students are expected to prepare and attend all quizzes and tests.  Quizzes and tests can be made up after an absence as long as the absence was excused by the school. If a student is absent the day of the review, then they will take the test on the originally scheduled day.

     

    Make-up Work:

     

                The student is responsible for obtaining the notes and assignments missed during his/her absence.  The students will have the opportunity to make up missed work as long as the absence was excused by the school. All missed work should be submitted one day after the excused absence.

     

    Availability:

     

                I am available to stay before or after school to tutor, prepare for tests or quizzes, or assist students in completing any assignments.  Please give 1 day notice so I can make the necessary arrangements.
