1 Two Word Summary of Mr. P’s Rules:

2 What does “Behave Decently” mean? What does “Behave Decently” mean?  Follow all school rules such as uniforms, ID’s, etc.  CELL PHONES – I see it, I take it. Includes texting. Suspicious hand motions under the desk attract my attention.  Be courteous in dealing wit h others – e.g., do not interrupt when someone else is speaking and they will not interrupt when YOU are speaking.  Follow all school rules such as uniforms, ID’s, etc.  CELL PHONES – I see it, I take it.

3 RESPECT, find out what it means to me… RESPECT, find out what it means to me… I will treat you with respect even if I have never met you before, but it is your responsibility to live up to the respect I show you. To get respect, EARN respect. Treat others with the same respect you want from them. (If you can’t say something nice, don’t say anything at all.) No insults, even as a joke. I will never insult or make fun of any of my students, nor will I allow them to insult or make fun of each other.

4 What else?  Laptops, Ipads, etc. – may only be used in class with permission of principal.  Do not distract class by walking around at inappropriate times.  Eating/drinking only by permission.  Bathroom first and last 20 minutes of class.  NO GUM allowed. My pet gripe – people stick it on the bottoms of the desks. Shows disrespect for the facility, and for me.  Laptops, Ipads, etc. – may only be used in class with permission of principal.  Do not distract class by walking around at inappropriate times.  Eating/drinking only by permission.  Bathroom first and last 20 minutes of class.  NO GUM allowed.

5 Anything else? Take pride in OUR school - place trash in cans, not on floor or desk. (Litter in India vs. none in Sri Lanka – a matter of national pride.)

6 None of you are babies. I would like to treat you as adults. I expect you to act that way. You are only a year or two away from college. I should not have to call your parents for discipline issues! If you have a problem in my class, I expect you to show me enough respect to see me first, NOT the dean, principal, etc. I would like to treat you as adults. I expect you to act that way.

8 ACADEMICS School policies regarding grading. $25.00 lab fee if taking only one science class. (Mrs. Coogler will collect all fees.) My syllabus coming next time. My main means of communication is through my school WIKI page ( wiki/mr-prentices-wiki/ ). Also has a link to my JPPSS address.

9 SCIENCE PROJECT Unless you are doing a science project for another class (e.g., AP science classes or college class), you must do a science project. Due date will be in April. All rules come from the International Science and Engineering Fair (ISEF) and the Greater New Orleans Science and Engineering Fair (GNOSEF). Details will be in the course syllabus and on my WIKI page. Unless you are doing a science project for another class (e.g., AP science classes or college class), you must do a science project.

11 WHAT IS THE MOST IMPORTANT THING IN LIFE? WHAT IS THE MOST IMPORTANT THING IN LIFE?

12 So far, I have been in 30 countries and taught in fourteen.

13 Cambodia I want to focus on one country: Cambodia.

14 In 2009 my travels included a 4 day trip to Cambodia. What a spiritual vacuum! My host Nick Haydon in his “tuk-tuk.” A more typical tuk-tuk. 30 years ago, Pol Pot came to power after the U.S. withdrew from neighboring Vietnam. He proceeded to kill one fourth of his country’s population – every handicapped or educated person -- whom he felt were useless.

15 In the capitol city of Phnom Penh is a memorial to the “Killing Fields” where so many millions were murdered. They would be locked in small sheds, knowing that the next time they came out would be to die. Most would be beaten to death or suffocated, while loud music played to drown out their screams.

16 At least 20,000 bodies were buried at this site, later turned into a memorial for the Killing Fields. Children playing next door have no idea what happened just across the fence.

17 WHAT IS THE MOST IMPORTANT THING IN LIFE? The ONLY things that could comfort them would be: (1)Their relationship with their concept of God (a higher power), and (2) Knowing that their life had a purpose. The ONLY things that could comfort them would be: (1)Their relationship with their concept of God (a higher power), and (2) Knowing that their life had a purpose. What are you doing to find YOUR purpose in life? Those waiting in the sheds to die in a few minutes could not take any comfort in their education or wealth.

18 When you come to your last day on earth, will you be sure that your life counted for something? When you come to your last day on earth, will you be sure that your life counted for something?

19 Though education is not THE most important thing in life, it is important. (Besides, I am a professional educator who gets paid to teach science!) Let’s start thinking about science.
