What ever will we do for the next 36 weeks? Mr. White 6 th Grade Earth Science Introduction Day 2
Your Turn Each of you have been given a handout to complete. You are to answer as many of the questions as possible. If you do not know the answer, then leave it blank. You have 5 minutes to complete this form. At the end of class today, you will be given a form to take home and be told when it is due at that time. All forms must be returned in order for the class to receive a reward.
Grades A = 90-100 B = 80-89 C = 70-79 D = 60-69 (Not Considered Passing) F = 59 and Below – Not Passing
Grading Policy No excuses, due dates are due dates. You should make every effort to hand work in on time. If you turn in work late the following shall apply: 1. 1 Day Late – 1 Letter Grade Deduction, therefore A quality would receive a B. 2. 2 Days Late – 2 Letter Grade Deduction, A quality would receive a C. 3. 3 Days or More Late – Maximum grade you can get is a 50%. The only exception is if you are absent and an assignment is due, you have the number of days you are absent to turn in make up work.
Grading Policy It is your responsibility to request, complete, and turn in make up work. I will not remind you. All assignments for homework should be written down in your agenda with due dates. You and your parents can check your grades online, make sure that both of you have your login information. Parents may contact me at my school e-mail address: email@example.com firstname.lastname@example.org
Project Based Learning You will be responsible for a great deal of the knowledge that you acquire, I will show you how and where to find it…but the rest is up to you! Each unit we cover will have an overarching theme and at the end of the unit, you will turn in a project related to this theme. You will be given instructions, a rubric, and a due date. Group projects will be graded as a group, and each member will be given a participation grade by each of their fellow group members. You will have choices in most projects about how to complete them, what the finished project should look like, and how it should be presented.
School Polices and Expectations The first 15 minutes and last 15 minutes of every class are dead time, no one may leave class during these times. At the end of the day, you may not leave class until your load is dismissed. The bell does not dismiss you at the end of class, I do. Horseplay is prohibited. Keep your hands to yourself. During restroom breaks you will remain in line, and silent. Breaks will be timed. We will leave for lunch at our assigned time and return at our assigned time.
School Polices and Expectations During lunch, you may talk but you will keep the noise level down. You will not be allowed to use the restroom during the time we are in the café. You will get your tray and sit at your assigned table. Once you are seated, you will not get up again. If you bring your lunch, there are no microwaves for student use. You must bring food ready to eat. Also, bring your drink. Energy drinks such as Monster or Red Bull are not allowed. You will clean up after yourself in the café, and we will not leave until our table(s) is/are spotless.
School Policies and Expectations I expect you to clean up after yourself in my classroom. PAWS passes will be given to anyone that I see picking up trash in the hallway or elsewhere. PAWS Program – What are the passes for? If you are assigned ISS you are to report to ISS immediately after breakfast. Bring notes after every absence, unexcused absences mean no make up work. Do your best, behave your best, and we will give you our best!
