Then you will turn to look at meThen I will say what I need to sayThen I will say…GO!!!Then you go back to work!It’s fun! You MUST FREEZE in the position you are in!!!
21 Rules =) These rules are to help the class community…I will explain WHY we have these rules…if I forget, please remind me…thank you!
22 Respect Respect yourself Respect each other Respect your teacher This is our home for the year and this is our family. Treat each other like one. Trust each other, help each other, respect each other, and TAKE CARE OF EACH OTHER.When you go to college, you are an adult and no one is there to take care of you. You must learn self respect, respect for others, and respect for your teachers early on, or else you won’t have a positive experience in college.
23 SAFE This classroom is a safe zone I want you to walk in here and feel safeTreat it like your homeNo bullyingNo littering
24 Some things that will not make our class feel safe… CurseDo not say RETARDED. FAG. GAY. HOMO. LOSER. Etc…(why? It hurts people’s feelings…be respectful) (accidental cursing I can understand but not on a regular basis)Back talkDo not talk back to a teacher or your peers (why? It hurts peoples feelings and create negative conversations…be respectful)FightingPushing, shoving, hitting, scratching, throwing, verbal, etc. (why? ITS DANGEROUS!!!!!)Walking around for funSeriously…its distracting (why? Seriously…its distracting..be respectful)
25 Students will not: Bully Groom Have side conversations Physically, verbally, mentally, emotionally, electronicallyGroomMake up, nail polish, lotion,Have side conversationsDuring teacher lecture, student presentation, group discussion, group work
26 Basically Be respectful of each other I want you to like coming to my classI want you to like talking and being with your classmatesThe best way to do this is if everyone feels safe and respected
27 Consequences First offense: Second offense: Third offense: Informal verbal warningSecond offense:Formal verbal warningThird offense:You will have detention and worksheetFourth offense:I will call your parents on the spot in classFifth offense:You go say Hello to Principal Fountain
28 iPod/ iPhone/ iPad Don’t have them out. Ever. EVER!!! Keep it in your backpackKeep it silentIf I see you using it…WHY? Because its disrespectful and THEY DO NOT ALLOW THIS IN COLLEGE…GET USE TO IT EARLY ON…its really hard I know =( but you have to try and learn. In college, THEY MAKE YOU TURN YOUR PHONES OFF AND PUT THEM AWAY…im NOT making this up
29 Consequences As as school rule If I see your phone or any electronic device out, I will take it away and give it to the office.If you do it AGAIN, you will have detention and a worksheet.If you do it AGAIN, I will call your parents.If you do it AGAIN, you will get a referral.
30 Bathroom You get 2 bathroom passes per semester Use them wisely You will get another 2 the next semesterThere are no “roll over” passes
31 Walking aroundIf I catch you leave my room or walking around the halls during bathroom passI WILL FIND YOU AND I WILL GROUND YOUYou will receive ZERO NONE NO WARNINGS if you leave my room without permission or if I catch you walking around the halls during bathroom passYou WILL DETENTION AND I WILL CALL YOUR PARENTSYou do it one more time and you go say hello to Principal FountainWHY? What if there was an emergency? Earthquake? And I can’t find you…what do I do then? I would not be able to live with myself if I lost you so please don’t do that to me!
32 CHEATING Don’t do it…Just don’t I follow Burton Tech rules on cheating If you didn’t study for the test or if you didn’t do the homework or if you didn’t understand something justBE HONEST AND TELL MEI WILL NOT GET MAD I WILL HELP YOUI am here for help and support =)
33 Late homework I do not accept late homework Why? In college you get one deadline…that’s it. If you don’t turn it in, too bad. I’m teaching you to get use to that mentality so you have a positive college experience.Any tests in class work/test/quiz you miss that day because you were absent…again…I need that note and you can make it up by the end of the following weekIf no note…then no make work.
34 HomeworkWrite your name!!! It’s YOUR HARD WORK…be proud of it! PLUS someone else could steal it and write THEIR name on it Think of writing your name down on your assignments as copyrighting So no one else can steal your awesomeness =D
35 Computers We will use computers a lot in this class When we use them there will be no:HARMING THE COMPUTERS (no downloading things, no taking off keys, no defacing, no throwing, no dropping, etc)No inappropriate sitesSTAY ON TASKIf I catch you…I will tell you to stop…then verbal warning…then detention with worksheet…call parents…then you say hello to Principal FountainWHY? WE NEED THE COMPUTERS TO LAST!!!!!!!
