EXPECTATIONS

ON TIME MEANS:

  • YOU ARE IN THE CLASSROOM, IN YOUR SEAT “PREPARED FOR CLASS”, AND WORKING INDEPENDENTLY ON THE DO NOW/BELL RINGER WHEN THE TARDY BELL RINGS.

           “PREPARED FOR CLASS” MEANS:

  • YOU HAVE BROUGHT ALL THE MATERIALS REQUIRED FOR THIS CLASS AS WELL AS YOUR TEXTBOOK (WHICH YOU ARE FINANCIALLY RESPONSIBLE FOR).  YOU MAY NOT LEAVE YOUR MATERIALS OR TEXTBOOK IN CLASS.
  • THIS ALSO MEANS YOU HAVE TENDED TO YOUR RESTROOM NEEDS.

 

DON’T TALK WHILE I’M TALKING MEANS:

THIS IS CHEMISTRY NOT ROCKET SCIENCE.  THIS MEANS EXACTLY WHAT IT SAYS.  I HAVE MUCH INFORMATION TO GIVE YOU AND A SHORT AMOUNT OF TIME TO DO IT.  IF YOU ARE TALKING WHILE I AM TALKING THEN YOU (OR YOUR CLASSMATES) ARE GOING TO MISS VALUABLE CONTENT OR INSTRUCTIONS NEEDED TO PASS THIS COURSE AND BE READY FOR COLLEGE.  THIS PREVENTS LEARNING AND IS DISRUPTIVE TO THE CLASSROOM THEREFORE IF IT IS A PROBLEM YOU MAY BE REMOVED.

 ALSO, TALKING WHEN SOMEONE ELSE IS TALKING IS RUDE.JUST DON’T.

RAISE YOUR HAND IF YOU HAVE A QUESTION

RAISE YOUR HAND IF YOU WISH TO ANSWER

 

RESPECT ONE ANOTHER MEANS:

THIS ONE RULE SUMS UP ANYTHING YOU CAN POSSIBLY THINK OF IN ONE WORD.

RESPECTING YOUR TEACHER MEANS YOU COME TO CLASS PREPARED AND READY TO LEARN BECAUSE THEY ARE HERE TO DELIVIER INFORMATION TO YOUR BRAIN NOT BABYSIT YOU AND KEEP YOU OUT OF TROUBLE. RESPECTING YOUR CLASSMATES MEANS YOU WILL NOT INHIBIT THEIR LEARNING BY BEING DISRUPTIVE.

RESPECTING THE SCHOOL MEANS YOU ARENT EATING IN THE CLASSROOM AND MAKING A MESS WRITING ON WALLS, DESKS, ETC. 

 

I EXPECT YOU TO ACT LIKE THE YOUNG ADULTS THAT YOU ARE BECOMING!

I EXPECT YOU TO PARTICIPATE, ASK QUESTIONS, AND HAVE FUN!

I EXPECT YOU TO TEACH ME!  NO ONE KNOWS EVERYTHING! I EXPECT YOU TO RESEARCH AND BRING NEW AND RELATED TOPICS TO DISCUSS/PRESENT IN CLASS.

 

 

TARDY IS NOT BEING ON TIME AS DEFINED ABOVE. 

3 TARDIES=LUNCH DETENTION

5 TARDIES=1 DAY OF IN SCHOOL DETENTION

7 TARDIES=3 DAYS OF ISS

THERE ARE FEW EXCEPTIONS TO THIS RULE (IE IF A STUDENT WERE INJURED AND ON CRUTCHES)

A NOTE FROM ANOTHER TEACHER WILL NOT BE COUNTED AS EXCUSED.

 

 

 

THE BELL DOES NOT DISMISS YOU.  I DISMISS YOU.

A MINUTE OR TWO BEFORE THE BELL, I WILL ALLOW YOU TO PUT AWAY YOUR THINGS, PICK UP ANY TRASH THAT MAY HAVE MADE ITS WAY ONTO THE FLOOR, STRAIGHTEN UP YOUR DESKS AND ASK ANY QUESTIONS YOU MAY HAVE.

WHEN YOU GO INTO THE HALLWAY TO GO TO YOUR NEXT CLASS, REALIZE YOU ARE STILL INSIDE A SCHOOL BUILDING AND YOU DO NOT “HOOP AND HOLLER”.

YOU HAVE 5 MINUTES TO GO TO YOU LOCKER, GET YOUR MATERIALS, USE THE RESTROOM, AND “BE ON TIME” FOR YOU NEXT CLASS.

·         YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE TO COME TO ME, SOMETIME OTHER THAN INSTRUCTION TIME, TO INQUIRE ABOUT MAKE UP WORK. 

·         THERE WILL BE A MAKE UP BINDER WITH HANDOUTS YOU MIGHT HAVE MISSED. 

·         YOU MUST GET THE NOTES FROM ONE OF YOUR CLASSMATES.

·         YOU MAY EMAIL ME OR COME BY MY CLASS AT THE VERY END OF THE DAY AFTER THE END OF THE DAY BELL RINGS NOT AT THE END OF 7TH PERIOD WHILE I’M TEACHING A CLASS

·         WITH AN EXCUSED ABSENCE YOU HAVE 3 DAYS TO TURN IN ASSIGNMENT AFTER THAT IT WILL NOT BE ACCEPTED.

 

 

  • WHEN GRADED WORK IS HANDED BACK USUALLY AT THE BEGINNING OF CLASS, YOU SHOULD PLACE IT IN THE APPROPRIATE SECTION OF YOUR BINDER FOR NOTEBOOK CHECKS!                       
  • DO NOT THROW IT AWAY!     

 

 

  • THE BINDERS WILL BE CHECKED AND GRADED RANDOMLY.
  • IF YOU COME TO CLASS WITHOUT YOUR BINDER ON A BINDER CHECK DAY, YOU WILL RECEIVE A ZERO.
  • YOUR “DO NOWS” ARE TO HAVE THE DATE.  IF YOU ARE ABSENT JUST MARK ABSENT BY THAT DAY.  IT IS PART OF A DAILY PARTICIPATION GRADE THAT CANNOT BE MADE UP. 
  • DO NOT COPY ANOTHER STUDENT’S DO NOW OR ALLOW ANOTHER STUDENT TO COPY YOUR DO NOW OR YOU WILL BOTH RECEIVE A ZERO                         
  • THE SECTIONS OF YOUR BINDER ARE TO BE LABELED: Hand-outs, Do Now, Notes, Graded assignments, Lab reports
