3 PROCEDURES REVIEWClassroom entry - you must do it silently or I will ask you to repeat the procedure. You know what you should be doing at this point in the semester, and we want to run like a well-oiled machine for the last quarter of the yearCell phones - three strikes and you're out. I will give you two warnings about your cell phone. On the third strike, I will ask for your cell phone. If you refuse to produce the cell phone, I will call for a hall monitor to escort you out of the classroom. Two warnings is generous and disrespect about this policy will not be tolerated.
5 POLLUTION ARTICLERead the guiding questions before you start on the article – this will give you a good idea of what you’re looking forYou will read the article independently and silently (by yourself!)You have 15 minutes to read and answer questionsThen, you will get into groups of 3-4 and decide whose answer to number 9 is the best – that is the one you will present to the class
