7th Hour INSTRUCTOR: Ms. Holden
My Classroom Expectations Students will arrive at class ON time. Students will arrive prepared to work (this means you will have your book, writing utensil and paper with you). Show respect at all times. No Pop/Juice allowed in the classroom.
Cell Phones I do not want to see or hear them. If any part of it is showing I will take it and turn into the office. 1 st offense – Parents required to pick up after school. 2 nd offense – Parents required to pick it up after school, student serves 60 minute detention 3 rd offense - Parents required to pick it up after school, student serves one day suspension.
Calculators A couple of units will require them and at that time I will tell you it is ok to have them in the classroom. Otherwise I do not want to see them.
Discipline Policy 3 tardies = step 1 and 1/2 hour detention 6 tardies = step 2 and 1 hour detention 7 tardies = step 3 and I follow the policy lined out in the handbook. A removal from the classroom is an automatic step 2.
GRADE SCALE A B C D F I DO NOT round grades at all!
HOMEWORK Usually an assignment is given daily. All homework is due by end of Class on Thursday(or last day of the week we have school.) Homework will be graded, and I will collect the assignments to review the work you should be showing. Any late assignment will be graded down 50% --no excuses/no exceptions. Need to be handed into box labeled Pre-Alg homework. –Late is being here, but not turning in the assignments that are due. –Not turning in work the day it is due because of an excused absence is not late. –School sports are not an excused absence for this purpose because you know in advance you will be missing class.
Homework Corrections Any homework can be redone for full credit if attached to the original work except for late work. Corrections must have name and assignment on it. It is to be turned into box labeled Pre-Algebra after it is attached to the front of the original assignment.
TESTS Approximately given every 3 weeks. These will be at the end of each unit. A test can be retaken up until the next unit test is given conditional upon the student making arrangements with the instructor one day prior to him/her wanting to retake the test. This is also at the discretion of the instructors schedule. Retakes can only be done before/after school, during lunch or during tutorial. They will not be given during regular class time.
CLASS PARTICIPATION This is based on what the instructor sees the student doing/acting in class. Instructor will put in the grade book on the average once every two weeks.
Your Grade Your final grade is a combination of Homework, Tests and Class Participation. Homework = 35% Tests/Quizzes/Projects = 55% Class Participation = 10%
Attendance 4 bonus points will be awarded for each week of perfect attendance and added to the homework scores.
Ipod/MP3 Players etc. Both ear pieces must be out and the player turned off while teacher is instructing the entire class. Once the assignment/test is given the ear pieces can go in, and the player turned on. Must turn off player and remove ear pieces when asking a question. The sound level must be low. If the instructor can hear it, it is way to loud. Not following the above rules, will result in loss of the privilege to have music devices in class.
