1 It’s a New Day in English 12! Classroom Expectations for the Project Design Unit

2 What’s different?  You are in charge of your own time.  You seek out what you need.  You manage yourself.  You plan what should be happening during class time (use your calendar).  You understand that your behavior and performance are being constantly evaluated.  More than ever, you are expected to act as an adult and professional.  No one will be telling you what to do—you are responsible for your own success.

3 Conditional Freedom  Ideally, I would like to give you as much freedom as possible to travel to different parts of the building if you have a real need to gain access to resources. This is, of course, conditional. The staff is aware of your project design task, and has been encouraged to help you *if* you are acting and communicating as an adult professional. They have also been encouraged to report you/deny resources if they feel that you are not acting appropriately.  Don’t embarrass us! Make us proud!

4 What does it mean to act as an adult professional?

5 OK  Talking productively— asking questions, for ideas and feedback.  Every-once-in-a-while sidetracks.  Asking instructor for feedback.  Bringing things in or asking permission to go elsewhere with a good reason.  Good-natured humor.  Working and getting stuff done.  Rowdiness  Gossiping/trash talking  Wasting time  Doing nothing or doing work for a different class/organization  Being so dependent on an instructor or friend that you’re not actually doing any work.  Abusing the privilege of freedom.  Distracting others.  Disrespect.  Loud laughing, shrieking, talking, etc. NOT OK

6 What can I do during class work time?

7 How about…  Write  Read  Design  Draw  Record  Get feedback/advice  Contact people  Make lists/plans  Obtain materials  Update/develop Google site  Test  Distribute  Get support

8 Get out your calendars—apply and finalize your plan. Then, get to work!
