6 Our Classroom Community Geology 12

7 Class Rules Our classroom is a community. In our community, we have rules to help us get along with each other.Our classroom is a community. In our community, we have rules to help us get along with each other. Our class rules are based on RESPECTOur class rules are based on RESPECT Remember Everyone Should Promote Equality Courtesy Teamwork Respect: – –a feeling or attitude of admiration and deference toward somebody or something – –consideration or thoughtfulness

8 Tardiness Classes start at:Classes start at: –9:15 a.m. –10:40 a.m. –12:45 p.m. –2:10 p.m. If you aren’t in the classroom following the second bell, please wait outside the door until I let you in.If you aren’t in the classroom following the second bell, please wait outside the door until I let you in. When you enter, you must sign. This ensures that I change attendance to reflect your arrival.When you enter, you must sign. This ensures that I change attendance to reflect your arrival. If you are tardy four times, this counts as 1 unexcused absent.If you are tardy four times, this counts as 1 unexcused absent.

9 Absents If you miss a class you are responsible to get the work or notes you missed.If you miss a class you are responsible to get the work or notes you missed. –You can me before or after the class to receive any electronic worksheets or handouts If you are absent on the day of a test you must have an excused absent to make up the test on your first class back. If you have an unexcused absence you will receive a 0 for the test.If you are absent on the day of a test you must have an excused absent to make up the test on your first class back. If you have an unexcused absence you will receive a 0 for the test. If you have 1 unexcused or 6 excused absences you will not be eligible for an exam exemption.If you have 1 unexcused or 6 excused absences you will not be eligible for an exam exemption.

10 Washroom and other Breaks from class In order to control the amount of traffic leaving my classroom a maximum of 6 people may leave during a period. You may leave, with permission only if: – –The class is working on individual seatwork

11 Lockview’s Social Responsibilities

12 Instructional Areas Take a few minutes to go through each of the 4 categories and discuss what they mean and what it looks like in practice. In small groups (3-4) you will then share your ideas. Your group will then create 4 rules, 1 for each category.

13 Consequences Everything we do in life has consequences. Consequences are the things that happen to you when you choose not to follow a rule. This is what will happen if you choose to violate one of the classroom rules: – –1 st time – Warning – –2 nd time – Move seat – –3 rd time – Detention on X at lunch – –4 th time – Call home – –5 th time – Office referral

14 Tracking Your Behaviour In order to help you make responsible decisions. I will use a chart to track your behaviour. You start a clean slate every week. Consequences will be enforced only for the repeated violations committed during that week. If you reach the 4 th step two weeks in a row you will be referred to administration automatically. I will recognise students who choose responsible behaviour, by having no violations for two consecutive weeks.

15 Fire Drills My fence number is: When the fire alarm sounds the following must occur: – –1 person will be asked to close both windows and blinds – –1 person will be asked to turn off the LCD projector – –1 person will be asked to lead everyone out to the fence – –1 person will be asked to turn off the lights and shut the door At the fence everyone in this class must gather together I will do a roll call 1 person will then be asked to run quickly to Ms O’Reilly in the grass area of the round about to report our class attendance
