Classroom Policies & Procedures
Transcript of Classroom Policies & Procedures
* Just remember you only have a short period of time for Daily Understandings
We will learn a lot about science and how our physical, chemical & biological world works. We will have fun and learn to enjoy science class.
Remember you will only be as successful as you let yourself to be. I will guide you and teach you. It’s up to you to…
Drills & Adults in the Classroom
Fire and Tornado Drills:
* Fire: Proceed to the side of the classroom and exit through the designated emergency door.
* Tornado: Proceed to room D120
Adults in the Classroom:
* Whomever the adults in the room are, they are in charge!
Dismissing from Class
* The last part of class belongs to everyone.
* During this time we might:
* Review items from class
* Complete a homework problem
* The bell is not your signal to leave the room. The signal will come from me
Entering the Classroom
* We start class immediately
* The first part of class belongs to everyone.
Bell Work & Passes
Bell Work - AKA: Daily Understandings
* On most days you will have some form of
bellwork. It might be questions, a paragraph, note review. You will have about 3-5 minutes of class time at the begin to complete bellwork. no exceptions.
* If you want to leave the classroom you must have your agenda book. No Exceptions!
Determining Your Grade:
* Tests and Quizzes = 40%
* Assignments = 20%
* Labwork = 30%
* Daily Understandings = 10%
*Telling someone the answer is rarely helpful - it shows a lack of concern for your friend and it does not allow that person to learn the information to apply it to new situations or problems in the future.
* How should you help?
** Ask questions that will lead your friend to the correct solution
** Give hints
** Create an example to illustrate a particular concept.
** Let your partner do the writing
** Let your friend verbalize his or her confusion
* Be a guide and a leader - not a purveyor of answers
Guidelines for Helping
* We know our team members’ names
* We know what our instructions are and follow them
* If calculations are required, we work separately and then share
* We respect other people's ideas and efforts
* We respect the property of our group and the school
* We take responsibility for our actions
* Each of us participates in the discussion or activity
* We listen to each other’s ideas and help each other
* We complete all tasks to the best or our abilities
* We clean up after the activity
* We listen without interrupting
* We help to involve every member in the group
* We stay focused on the topic
* We are willing to have our own ideas questioned
Collaboration or Partner Expectations
I will always work, think, and behave in the best way I know how, and I will do whatever it takes for my fellow students and me to learn.
This also means that I will complete all my homework when assigned, I will call, email, or talk with Mr. Finck if I have a problem with the homework , and I will raise my hand and ask questions in class if I do not understand something.
What I can expect from you.
In Science you can expect the unexpected! But, the expectations are HIGH!
* If you need to sharpen your pencil, hold up your pencil.
* If I nod or say yes, go to the sharpener.
* At the sharpener, even though it is tempting, do not talk.
* Quickly & quietly go back to your seat. It is not a social tour.
Finishing Early & Attention
* There are times you will finish your work early. During these times, you may read your library book or any other quiet activity.
When I Need Your Attention:
* I will say EYES UP!!
Desktop Code & Passing in Papers
* Necessary supplies
* All other items are OFF your work space
* Chrome book
Passing in Papers:
* Place completed assignments in your class hours box prior to sitting down for Daily Understanding. If it’s not in the box when the bell rings its late.
**When turning in a paper
I am responsible for my own behavior, and I will follow the teacher's directions. If I make a mistake, this means I will tell the truth to my teachers and accept responsibility for my actions.
What I can expect from you.
I will always behave to protect the safety, interests, and rights of all individuals in the classroom. This also means that I will always listen to all my Science Teammates and give everyone my respect.
What I can expect from you.
I will always teach in the best way I know how and do whatever it takes for my students to learn.
I will always make myself available to students and parents, and address any concerns they might have (emails, phone calls, conferences).
I will always protect the safety, interests, and rights of all individuals in the classroom.
What you can expect from me.
You can expect to:
* Work Alone
* Work in Pairs
* Work in Teams
* Teach Others
* Be Self-Paced
* Be Personally Responsible
* Work on Organization
* Work on Time Management
* Keep the Room in Good Operating Conditions
* Take Care of Equipment
* Learn A LOT of Science
* During lecture time and lab time your cell phone needs to be put away. If it is out and I see it the school’s cell phone policy will be enforced
* If you have a C or better in class you can use your cell phone to listen to music during times of independent work.
* If you are asking me a question BOTH ear buds must be out.
Every Friday (except if there is a test) you will be given 15 minutes of free time. You can talk, listen to music, or what ever you want with in reason. The noise level needs to stay at a minimum and reasonable.
Here's the kicker: I get to determine if Funday Friday occurs!!
Late Work - There is none! You don't turn in an assignment the resulting grade is a 0.
Absent Work - You have 2 school days to turn in the assignment or make up the work or it will result in a 0.
