Monday, July 20th Day 1 Science Starters Sheet 1. Please have these Items on your desk. AR Book 2- Science Starter: “What was your favorite part of this past summer break?” Agenda Write on September 28
“8 th Grade Science” Part 1 Your work and behavior in this classroom is expected to be of high quality. The definition for “Quality” in this class is work and behavior that “meets the stated requirements with a high degree of excellence”. Below are guidelines that will help you understand what the requirements are in this class. Be Prepared for Class- It is important that you are on time and have your materials with you every day. Required items include pencils, a red pen, highlighter, colored pencils, scissors, tape, flash drive your “Interactive Notebook”, “Student Agenda”, and an AR book. A calculator is not required but is recommended. GRIT Points - You will receive a “GRIT Points” 50 points each quarter for how well you are prepared, behavior, etc. Points may be deducted from your grade (5 points) for gum chewing, being tardy, taking extra bathroom breaks, or for behavior that disrupts our learning environment. L.O.G. slips will be given for lack of grit, which you will sign and complete. Behavior- Your behavior should be considerate and not interfere with the education of other students. You will be expected to know and follow all classroom rules, procedures, and safety guidelines. Inappropriate behavior may result in a brief conference, removal from an activity or class, Loss of “GRIT” points, parent contact, assignment of an after school detention, and/or administration contact. Grading Policy- All assigned work, whether done in class or at home, must be completely finished to be accepted for credit. Incomplete or illegible work will not be accepted. Copying from another student’s work or plagiarism will result in loss of credit for all parties involved and parent notification. Daily assignments turned in after the due date will lose 50% of the original value. Late work will only be accepted up until designated due dates. 10% per day will be taken on projects. “Extra Credit” is rarely offered, you should take advantage of it whenever it is available. Lab privileges may be revoked because of behavior or low grades (D or F by the third week of the quarter) and the lab will be completed with Mrs. Goodman or an alternative assignment given. Grading scale is as follows: Your grade is based on the percentage of points that you have earned for all class activities and assignments. A = 90-100%; B = 80-89%; C = 70-79; D = 60-69%; F = 0-59%. Grades are posted online using the “Infinite Campus: Student Information System” (or SIS) website. The website is located at: (firstname.lastname@example.org).email@example.com Class syllabus
“8 th Grade Integrated Science” Part 2 Absences- If you are absent, the information and hand-outs will be put in the corresponding (by date) folder in the absent crate. The warm-up for each day will be in the binder in the front portion of the crate. You will have one day for each day absent to complete make-up work. It is your responsibility to complete and turn in make-up work within the time allotted. “Ready Desk”- At the start of class each day, students must have their agenda, warm-up sheet, and AR book on their desk. Students will add information to their agendas and begin working on the warm-up in a timely manner. Students will receive a daily stamp on their warm-up sheet for following this routine. The stamped warm-ups will be turned in for a grade every two weeks. Interactive Notebook- Your interactive notebook is the most important resource that you will have in science this year. It will contain the information you need to study and to complete assignments. At the end of each unit, your notebook will be graded. Cell Phones- While in our classroom, keep your electronics in your backpack in a zipper compartment that is not open, unless it is being used for an educational purpose. How to Get Help- If you need help, tutoring is offered for science after school on Thursdays. Mrs. Goodman is often available on other days, too, so please talk with her to set up a time to come in for help. Bathroom Passes- You will be given two bathroom passes per quarter. Once you use those up or if you do not bring them to class, then you will not be able to use the restroom for that class period (unless medically necessary). In the case of an emergency, GRIT points will be deducted. Cheating Policy- My definition of cheating is not doing the work yourself. You should be able to rephrase what you read/wrote and explain it to me! Consequences for cheating on homework will be a grade of zero, parent contact and a referral. Test/quiz cheating will result in a retake of the assessment for the opportunity to receive a grade no higher than 59%. Mrs. Goodman also maintains a web page that has copies of worksheets and links to helpful websites. You can get to the page by going to the Bogle Junior High website (www.mychandlerschools.org/bogle) and then selecting her name from the “staff” page. Save this site to your “favorites” for easy access.www.mychandlerschools.org/bogle
Music Sometimes when we do quiet work or group work, we will listen to music. The music can be provided by you. It must be a separate play list on your phone titled “Science Playlist” All music must be school appropriate.
