ty Buddhis Daoism Other fun things Projects Simulations Learning menu Kahoot Film clips & movies End of unit potlucks Understanding the Grade Book

Assessments & Projects = 100% Assignments = 0% (Yes, they are still required work!) Non-academic grades = 0% (Yes, they still matter!) Work habits Initiative Collaboration Citizenship Students will also be reflecting on their own work and behavior. Retake Opportunities The grade book is designed to show what students have learned. There will be a test for

each chapter. There will be a unit assessment at the end of each unit. If students meet standard (85%) on the chapter test, they do not have to take that portion of the unit assessment. If students do not meet standard on the chapter test, they will be strongly encouraged to retake that chapter on the end-of-unit assessment.

Students must have completed the following before they can retake an assessment: - all assignments must be completed - they need to show continued work in the area of concern - meet with me Assignments Sometimes we will work through a chapter together. Sometimes students will be given a menu of assignments to choose from. Sometimes students will review & grade their work with a

peer. Students will have the opportunity to revise & make corrections to their work to support their learning. Most assignments will have a turn-in window, meaning students will have a period of time to turn in an assignment. There will be an end due date, however. Late work will not be accepted after the unit test. Assignments will be marked missing and/or late if they are not turned in before or on the due date. Bring your supplies to class Composition notebook (NB)

Pencil(s) Correcting pen Sticky notes Students are expected to come to class prepared each day. They will not be allowed to go back to their locker for supplies. Extra credit is not an option. It is important that students do their best work and take advantage of retake & redo opportunities. Cell Phones

Cell phones are NOT allowed in class. I do not want to see them, hear them, or know that they exist UNLESS: they have permission to use them on a class assignment or activity. If students know they are going to be gone, they can let me know and I will do my best to let them know what they will be missing in class. It is the students responsibility to get the work they missed and/or schedule a time to ask

questions and make up missing work. Students have one extra day for each day they were excused to make up missing work. Communit y We are a community. Students are expected to be respectful. This means not interrupting my teaching or the learning of others. Students are expected to be kind. Students are expected to be involved in their own learning. Learning is full of challenge and fun.

I look forward to coming to work each day and being a part of your childs learning process. WAYS TO SUPPORT YOUR STUDENT

Have discussions with your kids about what they are learning in the classroom. Make sure students have a homework routine for after school. Read about people, places, and events with your student. Listen to historical fiction and nonfiction audio books or podcasts together. Watch documentaries. Visit museums. Go on local road trips and learn about the geography and people. Ask questions about what you see in the world and about history. Check Family Access often with your student. Check teacher websites regularly. Communicate with teachers about concerns.

THANK YOU FOR BEING HERE THIS EVENING. I look forward to knowing and working with your student.
