I grew up in Northwest Ohio in a town called Perrysburg (near Toledo, Ohio) I went to Bowling Green State University and played baseball I’ve lived (and taught) in Texas for four years
Now I’d like to learn more about you! On an index card, please write down the following: NAME Birthday Extracurricular Activities and Hobbies (i.e. Football, Track, Debate Team, AP English, “I like to draw”, Bowling Team, “I play in a band”, etc. Please tell me if you have internet access and printer access at home: Anything interesting about yourself or something cool you did this summer
Now, it’s important that we meet each other! (1)Each student will get an index card with a word(s) on it (2)Find your “matching” word that another student has (3)Once you have your match, introduce yourself and then discuss one interesting thing that you did this summer or have done (4)Sit back down near your “match” (5)We will go around the room and introduce everyone Meat Potatoes
On Time To be early is to be on time, to be on time is late, and to be late is unacceptable Respect I expect you to respect me and also to respect each other Participation Participating in class is part of your grade. I expect you to be “doing what you’re supposed to be doing” and to the best of your ability This also includes DOING YOUR OWN WORK Accountability I will send YOU s before I send your parents one. You are accountable for your assignments and ultimately your success
Cell Phones Believe it or not, there was a time when people survived and learned without a cell phone/iPod/ipad/computer There will be times in class when I say “OK, you may use your cellphone” Other than that, it needs to be put completely away and turned off Verbal Warning 1 st time I take your phone until the end of the class period 2 nd time I take your phone to your house office 3+ times The cell phone policy is explained further in your student code of contact handbook and my syllabus
Restroom Breaks I have two passes in my classroom. The Red Pass is for the restroom and to get a drink of water (from the drinking fountain) The Blue Pass is for the nurse or to go to your house office. The Red Pass is for 5 minutes. The Blue Pass must be signed and returned by another faculty member. Food According to school policy, there will be NO food or drinks (except water) in the classroom. Some students have allergies and some critters love leftovers.
A single subject notebook for ONLY this class You can buy these at target at Wal-Mart right now for $.17 A 2”-3” 3 ring binder Writing Utensils Tissues
Classroom grades (30%) Quizzes (30%) Tests and Projects (40%) Every couple of weeks I look at grades and if you’re failing, you are REQUIRED to attend MANDATORY tutoring. If you don’t show up, a referral is written. You must attend MANDATORY tutoring until you’re passing again I will also post the Eligibility schedule on my website when it’s available
Journals (30%) Everyday in US History, you will have a “journal entry” In order to see the journal entry, you go to my website. The first journal is always notes and a skyward quiz. I check journals everyday to make sure that you’re staying up to date. Your first journal and skyward quiz is due by next class! Notes (30%) Everyday in US History, you will have to take notes. I create the notes and print the notes. So, I’ve done work and now I expect you to! If you ever miss a day of school, the power points and notes are all available on my website.
Quizzes (30%) There are two types of quizzes in US History. (1)Vocabulary Quizzes – You will have a vocabulary quiz once a week (either Thursday or Friday). The only time you won’t have a vocabulary quiz is if there is also a test that day. Please keep your vocabulary word list somewhere that you won’t lose it (2)Skyward Quizzes – These are the online quizzes that you will take through you skyward account as Journal Entry #1 each unit. They are automatically graded and must be completed before the proposed deadline Tests (40%) There is a test over every unit. I will create a test review each unit as well.
Are there any questions so far about the classroom procedures or grades?
