World Cultures Syllabus

WORLD CULTURES SYLLABUS

INSTRUCTOR:  MRS. TUBBS

TEXT :  WORLD HISTORY SPIELVOGEL

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}, AND CLASS ACTIVITIES TO DETERMINE YOUR GRADE.

MAKEUP POLICY:  IF YOU ARE ABSENT THE DAY A TEST IS 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 MAKE UP MISSED WORK.  IF IT IS NOT MADE UP ON TIME IT BECOMES A ZERO.

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 an assignment if you have done the work.

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 see Mr. Jioio.

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