STUDENT RESPONSIBILITIES

MRS. PECORA – ENGLISH I and II

2010-2011

COURSE MATERIALS:

(3)Grammar, (4)Writing. 

 

GRADING:

 

PREPAREDNESS:

Always come to class prepared and ready to begin work.  Homework assignments must be complete and ready to be reviewed or discussed.  Always bring your journal, English notebook/folders and your laptop to class.  If you need to bring your textbook or novel to class you will be told in advance.  You may not need to bring your text every day.  Your laptop should be fully charged from the night before, but be prepared to plug in if needed (you will need your charger.)  Always have your notebook and a pen with you as sometimes it is preferable to take notes in written format.  You will NOT be permitted to return to your locker once class has started.

 

ASSIGNMENTS:

You are responsible for all work, assignments, tests and material covered in class regardless of whether or not you are present.  Where there is a will, there is a way!  Email a responsible friend, check my webpage or refer to your agenda.  A zero received for missing work seriously affects your grade-point average.

EXTRA HELP:

An extra help session or student-teacher conference can be scheduled after school Monday-Thursday.  This is done on a “first-come, first-serve” basis.  See me before leaving class to sign up.  Asking for help is always welcomed!  Remember:  it is your responsibility to seek the help needed in a timely manner.  You can also schedule help from an IHA Honor Society student through the guidance department.

 

RESPECT and HONESTY:

I insist upon a classroom environment that fosters mutual respect.  Courtesy, honesty and a tolerance of ideas are expected at all times.  Cheating in any form will not be tolerated and plagiarism is a serious offense.  All incidents of academic dishonesty will be reported to the Dean of Students.
