Questions? My email address is email@example.com
What materials are needed in class and for homework?
In class and at home: 2 two-pocket folders, college-ruled notebook paper, pens, pencils, eraser, highlighters, colored pencils, colored pens/markers, Creating America workbook.
Plus, at home: computer device with internet access, and Creating America textbook.
Is there homework?
Yes! Expect homework any day from Monday-Thursday. It may range from 10 minutes to ½ hour or so for students who stay on track and do homework regularly. I try my best to NOT give homework over the weekend, although students may have to use that time to catch up. I also try my best to NOT collect homework/projects and/or give tests on Mondays.
What kind of classwork/homework will be expected?
Anything and everything! Folder checks, worksheets/graphic organizers, note taking, vocabulary, timelines, geography (maps), discussion, reading, writing, projects, presentations, group work, debates, research, etc. We will be working on learning American history along with developing our academic and technology skills for success.
How are trimester grades determined?
Students earn points/credit through folder checks, assignments, projects, tests, and class work/participation.
And yes, ATTENDANCE and CITIZENSHIP BOTH COUNT!
How can students improve their grades?
Students MAY RETAKE TESTS for a better test grade (up to a B) and I do give extra credit from time to time.
Students may re-do some homework, but they need to request to do so.
