After instruction, make sure you understand the concept. If not, ask questions by mentioning which part you didn’t understand.
WHILE YOU ARE WORKING Make sure you read or listen to the directions about your work and understand them. If you didn’t understand, ask help from other students sitting around you. If they also don’t understand, ask to the teacher to explain it. If you are asked to help, be polite and kind and offer your best. Talking to each other should be no louder than a whisper. The person sitting on the other side of the room should not be interrupted by your noise. Respect each other and be friendly. Use your time wisely. Put forth your best effort to finish your work on time.
KEEPING YOUR NOTEBOOKS You should have a regular notebook (Spiral), a composition notebook and a workbook(will be provided) Use pen or pencil to write in your notebooks and workbook. The first page should be the title page. Write your full name, period, and school name on it. Each day, put the date first. Always write the title (Bellwork, number of the activity or page). Keep your notebooks and workbook clean and organized. Your composition notebook will be collected and checked from time to time. Turn it in on time when you are asked. Take good care of your notebooks and workbook. Do not lose them.
IF THE TEACHER RAISES HIS HAND Stop whatever you are doing at that moment. Face the teacher and wait silently. Notify any classmates who haven’t noticed that the teacher has raised his hand. No talking or whispering. All of your attention should be given to the teacher.
AFTER YOU ARE DONE Check your work and the directions one more time to see if you missed anything or did something incorrectly. If the assignment is to be turned in, do so.
DISMISSAL Clean your work area and take all garbage to the trash can. Wait for Mr. Rodriguez to dismiss you. The ring of the bell does not dismiss you.
