Here is how to put a complete heading on your assignments... Name (First and Last) Date
The late work and make-up work policy is explained in the student handbook. 1 day after due date = 75% of grade 2 days after due date = ZERO
Check the absent tray hanging beside the white board. Daily assignments will be in the top tray, pick them up, complete and turn in the following day. Do not work on these during the class period unless given permission by Mrs. Warren. Do not take tests with you. You will need to schedule a time to come in and take the test that you missed. Your name and the date will be on the assignment in the tray.
Quizzes/Major Exams/Projects25% Laboratory Assignments/Participation25% Daily Work50% Although I will not check your notebook on a regular basis, it is important that you keep your work organized in your notebook and ready to use to answer test questions and complete projects. You will also have daily assignments that will be checked periodically and these should be found easily in your notebook.
Quizzes and Exams We will have a quiz after we complete each section. Test information = notes, textbook, handouts and worksheets, labs and DISCUSSION! If you miss a test, it is your responsibility to see me and arrange a time for you to take the test. You have one week to make arrangements.
Classroom Procedures All work should be turned in to the appropriate basket labeled with the class name—PFD--7 You may leave your notebooks in the classroom on the shelves in the back. You will keep these shelves neat or your supplies will be taken to your locker. My room will be left clean daily. If you use supplies for various projects, you will not be dismissed from class until everything is returned to its proper storage place. All discipline will be handled quickly and fairly and will be appropriate for the misbehavior.
The Lab aka The Kitchen There are several rules to follow while working in the kitchen. All rules and procedures will be reviewed before working in the kitchen. You are not allowed in the kitchen for any reason without permission from Mrs. Warren. If you use something in the kitchen, it is your responsibility to clean up after yourself.
Final Thoughts... You get out of this class what you put into this class. Your positive attitude and enthusiasm about learning skills that are essential to living are the keys to the success of this class.
