Class Expectations

Class Expectations

1. Respect yourself, the teacher & others

· Show respect for the teacher, yourself and others at all times.

· Respect others’ property. Avoid touching or writing on anything that does not belong to you (including desks, textbooks, teacher’s belongings, walls, chalkboard, etc.). Don't expect that others will clean-up your messes. Please pick-up after yourself.

· Respect yourself and the rest of us by using appropriate language and wearing appropriate clothing.

· Be a kind person.

2. Put forth your best effort at all times

· Always do your own best work.

· Put learning ahead of getting good grades.

· Put quality ahead of just getting it done.

3. Be prepared for class each day

· Come prepared with all materials necessary:

§ An organized class binder containing all necessary materials and handouts

§ Looseleaf paper, and pencils, post it notes

§ A red or purple pen for grading in class or underlining important elements in note taking

§ Highlighters for emphasizing important text

§ A planner to help keep you organized - the most successful students are organized.

4. Follow directions when given

· When directions are given, do your best to follow them the first time. If you are confused or have questions, ask. I would rather have you stop class to clarify than be off task while everyone else is working.

5. Pay attention, participate and ask questions

· Engage in what is going on in the classroom.Be an active participant in your education! If you have a question, ask it! Otherwise, I might not know until the test that you didn’t understand something. There are no stupid questions, and chances are, if you are wondering about it, someone else in the class is too. Be proactive about your learning and don’t be afraid to ask for help. If you feel most comfortable waiting until after class, that is okay, too, but do keep communication open between us.

6. Preserve a positive learning environment

· Student actions that interfere with teaching or learning in the classroom will NOT be tolerated.

· Use class time to learn Language Arts. Please do not spend your time grooming, sleeping, talking, writing notes, playing cards, listening to your Ipod, text-messaging friends, or doing work for other classes.

· Minimize classroom interruptions by arriving to class on time and not leaving the classroom during the hour.

7. Take responsibility for your actions

· If you are confronted about a rule infraction, own up to it. Don’t deny it, lie about it, or blame someone else.

· Take responsibility for missed assignments.

· All handbook rules will be enforced. Please read your handbook.
