ELECTRONIC EQUIPMENT:IPODS, IPADS, Cell phones, MP3 players, etc.may NOT be used AT All during class, as per school policy will be confiscated. This will result in a lower participation grade. GRADING POLICY The teacher does not “give” grades. She keeps score, like in a ball game. Good grades don’t just happen, but result from positive classroom behavior, and good study skills. It is YOUR responsibility as a student to work hard and make enough points to earn a good grade. Grading Breakdown: Formal Assessment: (not limited to tests, quizzes, projects) 70% Informal Assessment: (not limited to homework, participation, writing) 30% Attitude about the Class: This class requires attention and hard work. You must be patient and continue to try, even if at times you feel lost and confused. Giving up is NOT an option! I am available after school to answer questions and help you with anything you might have a problem with. Tutoring will be available on Tuesdays and Thursdays. I am not a mind reader. If you don’t understand, you must let me know immediately. Absences:YOU are responsible for finding out what went on, turning in assignments, and arranging with the teacher to make up any tests you have missed. Tests must be made up within 3 days of coming back to school. If you missed the day of the test, you will be expected to take the test upon returning. You are not exempt from the test if you missed the day before. Tests are usually announced 3-4 days in advance. Homework must be made up within 3 days as well, and turned in. I look forward to a great semester!
