CLASSROOM PROCEDURES Mrs. Thomas Mrs. Begley Mrs. Pallaria ACHS English 10
FOREWORD Welcome to English 10. I am here to teach; you are here to learn. I will do my job; you will do yours, and we will together use this year wisely and beneficially. Positive attitude is the key of success. Let’s keep it all the time.
WHY DO WE HAVE PROCEDURES? A procedure is the way that we do things. To do things right, we have to follow some simple procedures, for example: To open your locker, you have to select your combination as directed by the lock manufacturer. To place a call on your phone, you need to enter the number in the right order. So, to be successful in learning, you need to follow some simple procedures.
ENTRANCE Make sure you have all necessary materials for the class. Enter the classroom quietly. Go directly to your assigned seat. Get ready for your work.
RIGHT AFTER THE BELL RINGS Immediately start the WARM UP that will be written on the board. Do the warm up in your notebook. It will be graded. When you finish, wait quietly for the next direction.
DURING INSTRUCTION Listen to the teacher with full attention. No pencil sharpening, talking, or whispering. Don’t write anything during instruction. You will be given time for taking notes. Ask permission to speak by raising your hand. Ask questions related to the subject. Other questions which are not related to the subject can be asked after instruction. 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 NOTEBOOK LOOKING SHARP Use pen or pencil to write in your journal. Using two different colors, one for the title and a different one for the body of the text, will make your journal look better and more organized. The first page should be the title page. Write your full name, section, and school name on it. Number the pages in the right bottom corner. Always write the title with capital letters. Each day, put the date first. Keep your journal clean and organized. Your journal will be collected and checked from time to time. Turn it in on time when you are asked. Take good care of your journal. Do not lose it.
IF THE TEACHER RAISES A 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. Work on your incomplete work. This is English, you may read or write silently when you have completed ALL work.
DISMISSAL Clean your work area and take all garbage to the trash can. Wait for a teacher to dismiss you. The ring of the bell does not dismiss you.; After you get permission to leave, push in your chair and leave quietly. If it is the last period of the day, tidy up the room silently while the afternoon announcements are heard. Thank You. Thank You.
WHEN YOU ARE TARDY Sign the tardy notebook. Put your pass in the Tardy Basket. Go to your seat silently. You will not be excused from any work you missed. Get the assignment from a classmate and do it at home.
WHEN YOU ARE ABSENT Get the assignments from your classmates and the worksheet from the Make Up Work Shelf. Do the work at home. If you missed a test because of your excused absence, inform a teacherand arrange a time to make up the test after school.
CLASSROOM RULES Bring all necessary materials to class No gum, food, or drink allowed Always act and speak in an appropriate way Respect the rules, procedures, and each person in this class Sit in your assigned seat Do not sit at the teacher’s desk or in her chair If you’re not sure – Ask!
