    Expectations


    EACH STUDENT IS EXPECTED TO ATTEND CLASS DAILY AND PARTICIPATE IN ALL CLASSROOM ASSIGNMENTS AND ACTIVITIES.  STUDENTS ARE TO COME TO CLASS PREPARED AND READY TO DISCUSS THE DAY’S TOPIC.  ALL STUDENTS ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR CONTRIBUTING TO THE LEARNING PROCESS AND TO SEEK ADDITIONAL HELP AS NEEDED.  TUTORIAL SESSIONS MAY BE SCHEDULED BEFORE SCHOOL, DURING FLEX B OR AFTER SCHOOL.  PLEASE SEE ME TO SET UP A CONVIENIENT TIME SHOULD YOU NEED ANY ADDITIONAL HELP.

    You are expected to be an active learner! 

     


    Ability+Effort=Success 

     
    Grading


    GRADES WILL BE BASED ON A POINT SYSTEM THAT WILL BE CONVERTED INTO PERCENTAGES.  THE FOLLOWING CATAGORIES REPRESENT HOW MUCH EMPHASIS IS PLACED ON SPECIFIC TYPES OF EVALUATIONS:

                    TESTS/QUIZZES- 60% OF OVERALL GRADE

                    HOMEWORK/PROJECTS- 20% OF OVERALL GRADE

                    IN-CLASS ACTIVITIES- 20% OF OVERALL GRADE

     
                    EXAMPLE:

                    TEST AVERAGE: 275/300 = 92%

                    HW/PROJECT AVERAGE: 180/200 = 90%

                    CLASS ACTIVITY AVERAGE 187/190 = 98%

                    OVERALL AVERAGE = 93%

     

    EACH STUDENT IS REQUIRED TO COMPLETE ALL PROJECTS, TESTS AND ASSIGNMENTS.  FAILURE TO DO SO WILL AFFECT THE STUDENT’S OVERALL GRADE.

     

    BASED ON OUR MISSION OF GIVING EVERY STUDENT A CHANCE TO REACH HIS/HER FULLEST POTENTIAL, STUDENTS WILL BE GIVEN MULTIPLE LEARNING OPPORTUNITIES THROUGHOUT THE COURSE.  ALTHOUGH SOME OF THESE OPPORTUNITIES ARE NOT MANDATORY, YOU ARE HIGHLY ENCOURAGED TO UTILIZE THESE OPPORTUNITES TO PERSONALIZE AND REFINE YOUR LEARNING.
