10 Another note on homework: Homework assignments are checked or collected at the beginning of class each day. No working on homework during time for La Clochette. If so, you will receive a ZERO for BOTH assignments.NO LATE homework will be accepted (even if it is finished and in your locker or at home).Repeated failure to turn in homework assignments will result in a parent phone call.Copying someone else’s homework is CHEATING. You and the person whose work your copied will each earn a zero.
11 ParticipationEach time a student participates in French, he/she will receive one participation point.Speaking in English (or ANY other language) is STRICTLY PROHIBITED and will result in the loss of participation points.Every week each student’s points are added together and converted to a grade based on the class average for participation.Grades reflect the students’ frequency and ability to speak French in class.
12 Why is it so important for us to speak only French in class? When you were a baby and first learned English, did your parents speak to you in Japanese?Your brain naturally follows the path of least resistance and will not hear French if English is also floating around the classroom.Bonjour!
13 What to do if you are absent… Check my website for homework and assignments. There is 1:1 ratio for make up days. Therefore, if you missed one day, all work must be turned in one day after you return.Upon returning check your folder for any worksheets or handouts that were not available on the website.Copy any notes missed during your absence from a friend or the website.Schedule an appointment to make up any tests or quizzes within 2 days. You must take them within the appropriate time. You will receive a zero for the test or quiz that is not made up.Make up work is your PERSONAL responsibility!
