    Parents and students: Please read the syllabus for your class and sign the Syllabus Agreement that was distributed (or print it from the attached document if it has been misplaced). 

     

     

    Please be aware that some of our units include films such as The Freedom Writers, Romeo + Juliet, Dead Poets Society, The Most Dangerous Game, and The Chocolate War (Honors)I will send home an "Opt-out" form for movies that are rated R, and students will be given an alternate assignment. Please contact me with questions. 

     

    Classroom Policies  

    All devices, including phones, earbuds, and headphones must be put away before entering the room.

    Specific instructions will be given when it is permissible to use devices.

    Students earn points towards their Citizenship grades by being prepared, respectful, on-task, and contributing to an overall positive learning environment.

    Points are deducted when those expectations are not met.

    Students may earn bonus points on their Citizenship grades for exemplary behavior and attitudes.

    Discipline

    In the event that a student has disrupted the learning process, he/she may be asked to leave the classroom and report to the office. Detentions will also be assigned for disruptive or disrespectful behavior. 

     

    Assignments and Deadlines

    Check Google Classroom regularly for material, assignments, deadlines, and the Google Calendar.

    In the event that a paper handout is provided, only one copy will be distributed. Additional copies must be printed by the student from the PDF provided on Google Classroom.

    Final deadlines will be enforced throughout the second semester; assignments may not be submitted for credit once the final deadline has passed.
