9 Required Materials Students are required to bring the following materials to class on a daily basis: an organized Critical-Reading three-ring binder notebook and a writing utensil, plus any other specified materials. The three-ring binder notebook will be extremely important in this class and will, therefore, be graded periodically and randomly as quiz grades. For consistently excellent scores on these notebook quizzes, all handouts and notes from class must be organized in chronological order—not stuck in the pockets in the front or back of the notebook.

10 General Class Rules Class time is extremely important in Critical Reading. Students are expected to be in their seats BY THE TIME THE BELL RINGS, because I will already be teaching by that time. (In accordance with the student handbook, any student who is tardy for any reason must bring a tardy slip from the office.) If a student has forgotten materials and needs to return to his locker, he must obtain a tardy slip before returning to class. Class time is extremely important in Critical Reading.

If a student has forgotten materials and needs to return to his locker, he must obtain a tardy slip before returning to class. A student who has missed class the previous day must bring his absence excuse with him to class. If a student must leave class to obtain one or is late to class because he is obtaining one, he must also bring a tardy excuse from the office. A student who has missed class the previous day must bring his absence excuse with him to class. If a student must leave class to obtain one or is late to class because he is obtaining one, he must also bring a tardy excuse from the office. A student who has an excused absence (according to the handbook) is given one day per excused absence to make up any work. This includes tests, quizzes, homework assignments, and any projects. If a student does not ask for his make-up work the day after he was absent, he will NOT be allowed to make up the work. This is very important for students to remember: It is THEIR responsibility to ask for make-up work.
