DO NOT wait for me to begin class. You will only have a short time to complete the class starter so dont waste time.Tardy means not in your seat. It doesn't mean one foot in the room.I prefer not to raise my voice to get your attention. Your assignments are written on the board each day. Please come in, read the board, and begin working on the days assignments.

  • Procedures for ending class:DO NOT begin putting away your materials until you are told to do so.Make sure everything around you is picked up.When the bell rings wait for me to dismiss you, the bell is a reminder for me that class is ending.QUIETLY leave class in an orderly manner.

  • Class procedures:Participate in class discussions and activities in a courteous manner. Everyone has valuable ideas to share and should have the opportunity to express himself/herself.During class discussions RAISE YOUR HAND, and wait to be recognized.Feel free to ask sincere questions which relate to the class work. Remain quiet when others are asking or answering questions. This is an important way to learn from each other.When completing individual work, you should work quietly without talking to others. During group work or partner work, you should talk quietly with each other but not to members of other groups. Group talk should be restricted to the assignment until the assignment is completed

  • Class procedures continued:We have many objectives to complete. This is not the time for doing work for other classes.ALL activities stop during intercom announcements (quietly remain seated and listen).Stay in your seat when the bell rings. I will dismiss you.Clean your area before leaving.
