Social Studies Syllabus
Entering the room:
-Find your seat and read the daily agenda on the board. Take out any materials that are listed in the agenda.
-Begin the Bellringer assignment. Bellringer assignments will be turned-in each Friday and graded.
*Should you need to sharpen a pencil, throw something away, or otherwise leave your seat, now is the time to do it.*
If you are out of your seat when the tardy bell rings, you may receive a tardy.
-Respect the teacher/other students. For the entire class, not just during the Bellringer. :)
-Raise your hand to speak/leave your desk. You must notify me prior to leaving your seat. Please do not leave your seat during instruction.
-After the Bellringer is complete, we will review homework and I will collect your assignment.
-When using an iPad, you must remain in the app that is being used for class instruction. Although I have, and use, the ability to restrict access to only the apps needed for instruction; accessing non-instructional apps during a lesson will result in a consequence.
-Complete all of the work that is assigned in class. If you need help, always ask. I am here to help.
-The purpose of homework is to deepen your understanding of concepts that we cover during class time.
-Complete your homework in a timely manner and turn it in on the date it is due.
-Homework is posted in the room, written on our notes, and posted on the Homework Calendar of my teacher website.
If you’re absent:
-Check the Lesson Plan Page and Homework Calendar on my teacher website.
-Ask a classmate.
