5Classroom Expectations The atmosphere in this classroom will be formal and academic, but comfortable.Students will work hard, learn biology, and enjoy the process.If a visitor walked into our classroom during the day, what should they see?
6I expect students to do the following things to make sure the classroom runs smoothly: Attend class, and arrive on time.Have materials ready when the bell rings.Listen when others are speaking.Follow directions the first time they are given.Get permission before speaking.Be polite and respectful toward each other.Stay on-task and focused on biology.
