Earth Science:
Mr. Babicz

WHAT ARE WE LEARNING ABOUT?
Our Classroom
Conclusion
About Mr. Babicz
Me
My wife, Kim
My son, David
My Hobbies
My Classroom Philosophy
Create a safe and nurturing learning environment for all students.
Our classroom is a community of learners and we all work as a team to promote success.
Advances are gained when we learn from our shortcomings. Mistakes are a part of the educational process.
What are some ideas you have when you think of a safe and nurturing classroom?
What guidelines would you like to have in this class to ensure you feel comfortable?
Procedures and Routines
F.A.Q.'s:
What materials do I need?
You will need your three ring binder, your ESRT, a writing instrument and your sense of humor :) If there are handouts they will be placed on the black wire rack. Extras will be placed in the metal shelves by the windows.
Homework, tests, and quizzes:
Will be posted on the white board at the back of the classroom. Look for your section to see what is due. Place all completed work in the black plastic filing cabinet. I cannot ensure the safety of your documents if it is placed anywhere else!
If an action is potentially unsafe...
DO NOT DO IT
If you have nothing nice to say...
DO NOT SAY ANYTHING AT ALL

New York State Regents
All course work is cumulative
Students must complete a minimum of 1200 lab minutes (~30 labs) for the year. If the work planned is not finished you will have a difficult time passing. If you do not complete your lab minutes you will not sit for the Regents.
The exam is composed of a lab practical and a written exam.
The Regents exam is worth 20% of your overall grade. Think of it as a 5th marking period.
Late assignments will not be accepted.

Please manage your time so you can hand in assignments on time. The Highlands Earth Science Department does not offer extra credit, so keeping deadlines are a crucial element if you wish to earn a high average in this class.
Do you assign homework on the weekends?
I rarely give weekend assignments, and will always give adequate time to complete assignments.
Bathroom?
Always sign in and out of the room and fill out a pass every time you leave the classroom.
How is my grade determined?
Labs: 25%
Tests/Quizzes/Projects: 60%
Homework: 15%
Whether you think you can or you can't,
you're right!
Intermediate Level Science Exam
Assessment of science knowledge from grades 5 through 8
