American History I Syllabus

AMERICAN HISTORY I SYLLABUS

INSTRUCTOR: MRS. TUBBS

MATERIALS NEEDED: THREE RING BINDER

GRADING:  I USE A POINT SYSTEM.  ALL WORK IS GIVEN A POINT VALUE.  YOU EARN POINTS, THEN AT THE END OF THE GRADING PERIOD YOU GET THE PERCENTAGE GRADE BASED ON THE POINTS YOU EARNED.

I USE TESTS, QUIZZES, PAPERS, PROJECTS {BOTH INDIVIDUAL AND GROUP}, ATTENDANCE, AND CLASS ACTIVITIES TO DETERMINE YOUR GRADE.

MAKEUP POLICY:  IF YOU ARE ABSENT THE DAY A TEST IN GIVEN, YOU MUST MAKEUP THE TEST WHEN YOU RETURN TO SCHOOL.  IF YOU ARE

OUT FOR SEVERAL DAYS, WE WILL ARRANGE THE MAKEUP TIME TOGETHER.  IF YOU KNOW AHEAD OF TIME THAT YOU WILL BE OUT OF SCHOOL, PLEASE DISCUSS IT WITH ME AHEAD OF TIME. 

*IT IS YOUR RESPONSIBILITY TO MAKEUP MISSED WORK.  IF IT IS NOT MADE UP ON TIME IT BECOMES A ZERO.

I DO NOT ACCEPT ANY LATE WORK.  IF YOUR WORK IN NOT IN YOUR NOTEBOOK WHEN I CHECK IT, THE ONLY WAY YOU CAN GET CREDIT FOR DOING IT IS TO STAY NINTH PERIOD AND DO IT THEN.

I feel that cheating is disrespectful, and it will not be tolerated.  If I catch you I will follow the school policy.  First time you receive a zero and your parents are notified.  Second time you are given a misconduct and will fail the class for that marking period.  You will only receive credit for the work you have done.

I will expect you to follow the dress code in the handbook.  However, this is my classroom, and if I have a problem with the way you are dressed you may be asked to leave the room to change or go to the office.

IF YOU NEED HELP: I AM AVAILABLE NINTH PERIODS.  LET ME KNOW IF YOU ARE STAYING BECAUSE I SOMETIMES HAVE MEETINGS NINTH.
