Entering the Classroom
Enter the classroom
quietly and calmly, sit in your assigned seat and begin the “Do Now”
“Do Now” Work
Each day when you arrive
to this class, there will be a "Do Now” assignment on the table, the board
or the overhead projector. When you enter the classroom you should immediately get started on the assignment. The assignment
will be corrected verbally as a class. When you have completed the assignment, you should write in your journal or read. Every
day you should record the daily entry from the board into the "Do Now” section
of your notebook. This is always a part of the "Do Now” assignment.
Work is collected by
passing your papers to the person seated in front of you. Place your paper on top of your neighbor's paper and then continue
passing the papers to the front of the row. When all of the papers are received at the end of the row, the student, whose
job it is to collect papers will gather all of the papers and put them in the finished work basket.
Turning in Work
There are two baskets
in the front of the room. One basket is labeled "class work" and the other is
labeled "homework." Whatever type of assignment you have to turn in, place the
work in the appropriate basket.
ü Labeling Your Work
Make sure all assignment have your full name, period and date clearly written on the top left margin of your
ü Late Work
one day late will receive a maximum grade of 70%.
Assignments that are two days late will receive a maximum grade of 50%. Assignments three days late or later will not be accepted and a grade of 0 will be given.
ü Restroom Passes
In order to control the amount
of traffic leaving my classroom a maximum of 3 people may go to the
restroom during any given period.
You may go to the restroom only if:
a) you have finished all of
your assigned work
b) the class is working on Individual
c) you have not abused this
privilege in the past.
d) only one student may
use the restroom at a time.
You must sign out in the Lav Log and sign
back in when you return to class.
When You are Absent
All papers that are passed out during
class or any notes that need to go home will be placed in the Make-up Work basket.
When you come back to school you must pick up the work from the basket to complete. You should ask your fellow classmates
what assignments, quizzes, tests and/or notes you may have missed. You must also
check in with me the day you return from an absence to set up a make-up schedule.
If you have access to the Internet at home you may e-mail me at: firstname.lastname@example.org
and ask for missing work. Class work and homework
are posted on my website: http://mrs.primack.tripod.com/
Working in Cooperative Groups
You are responsible for your own work.
You are to ask a "support buddy" for help if you have a question.
You must help if you are asked for help.
You may ask for help from the teacher when the group agrees on the same question.
Roles are assigned for all group work. You are responsible for your assigned role.
Each student will keep a 3-ring binder or a 5-Subject notebook,
organized as specified below:
1.4Notes 2. 4Writing 3. 4Do Now 4.4Vocabulary 5. 4Journal
Saying "Thank you."
At all times, remember to say thank you
to one another. Along with "thank you," "please" should also be used at all times.
End of Class Dismissal
I dismiss the class, not the bell. Students
will wait until I dismiss them.
