Mrs. Lilach Cary
Hi, I don't get the homework.
How to send an email:
Late Work
Student
: Hi, this is John A. I can't answer question number three because it is smudged. What does it say?
Mrs. Cary
: It asks for the definition of conflict. Can you see the rest or do you need me to email you a copy of the assignment?
Student
: No, the rest is good. Thank you!
Mrs. Cary
: See you tomorrow!
Student
: Hi. I don't get the homework.
Mrs. Cary
: Who is this?
Student
: John.
Mrs. Cary
: John A. or John P?
Student
: John A.
Mrs. Cary
: What didn't you understand?
Student
: Question number three.
Mrs. Cary
: Well, question number three asks for the definition of conflict. Did you look it up?
Student
: Oh, well, the ink was smudged so I couldn't read the question.
Mrs. Cary

Homework
I expect students to come to class with all of the necessary materials and to actively participate in class discussions. (Materials needed are listed on the board)
Will be assigned as necessary
within each unit. The best
way to become an expert
is to practice the necessary skills. Additionally, you will be required to spend 30 minutes a day reading a book of your choice.


Tests and Quizzes
I expect students to come to class with all of the necessary materials and to actively participate in class discussions. (Materials needed are listed on the board)
Tests will be given at the end of each unit and will be announced several days in advance.

If you are absent the day before a test, you still must take the test on the assigned day if nothing new was taught.

If you are absent on the day of a test, you must meet me the day you get back to arrange for a makeup test. If you don't take it within a week, you will get a zero.
Test will be given at the end of each unit and will be announced several days in advance. (They are listed on the board)
Must Do's
I expect students to come to class with all of the necessary materials and to actively participate in class discussions. (Materials needed are listed on the board)
At the beginning of each class period there will be an assignment for students to work on as a review or as an opening to the day’s lesson.
Taking Notes
As students begin to prepare for college, it is important to develop good note taking skills. Students will take Cornell style notes and will lose participation points if they are not making a good faith effort to take good notes. Some quizzes will be open note quizzes, so make sure you can understand your notes.
Tardy Policy

Students must be in class and in their seat on time with all of their materials.
• Students who do not have their materials and need to leave to get them will be marked tardy.


Makeup Work
• It is the student’s responsibility to make sure that an absence is cleared and to make arrangements with me to make up missed work. Students must go to the class website or email me to obtain the work from the day they miss. I will not tell students what assignments they missed unless they have already checked the website and emailed me.
If you comes to class on the day of a quiz or test after being absent, you will not be
excused from taking that quiz or test unless
you have made prior arrangements with me.
If you miss a lab, quiz, or test you must make arrangements to make up the lab within one week of returning to school.
This is a college preparatory middle school. As such, work is due when it is due. If you need more time, you must make a request at least 24 hours in advance, or else risk losing points.

Project deadlines are given in advance. If a student is absent on the day a project is due, they must arrange for the project to be submitted on time in order to receive full credit. If prior arrangements have not been made, the assignment will be considered late.

Academic Integrity:
At Allilance MIT we
emphasize academic integrity.
Any violation may result in a zero.
About Me!
TOGETHER WE WILL:
Reach 1000 Lexile Score (end of year target score)
Maintain a 3.0 GPA
Compose a 1-2 page process-paper (narrative, informative, or argumentative) in which we will integrate a minimum of three sources.

Our class goal is to

improve
our reading, writing, and critical thinking skills in both English and History. We will
explore
Ancient Civilizations beinning with the earliest humans to the rise of Rome. We will
capture
our connections findings through various forms of writing.
Be prepared
to participate in learning and
push through
challenges both individually and in groups.
