 Students will investigate questions using scientific methods and tools, revise their personal understanding to accommodate knowledge, and communicate these understandings to others.

 Students  will demonstrate an understanding of the characteristics and structures of living things, the processes of life, and how living things interact with one another and their environment.

Students will  use a variety of geographic representations, such as political, physical, and topographic maps, a globe, aerial photographs, and satellite images, to gather and compare information about a place

Students will use an atlas to estimate distance, calculate scale, identify dominant patterns of climate and land use, and compute population density

Classroom Rules and Procedures/Expectations

Welcome to Mrs. Schroeder's Classroom!

Because I care about you and your right to learn, the following rules and policies will be enforced in this room. At first it may seem that I expect a lot from you, but I do this only because I know you can do it.

Classroom Rules

I have three general classroom rules. I expect that your behavior, statements, and actions will meet these three criteria at all times. As you consider your actions, simply ask yourself these three questions:

  1. ­ Is it safe?
  2. ­ Is it courteous?
  3. ­ Is it my best?

Mission Statement

My goal is to educate students who will:

  • ­ think critically,
  • ­ communicate effectively,
  • ­ value and demonstrate high ethical conduct,
  • ­ contribute to the community, and
  • ­ excel among people throughout the world.

 

Grading Scale:

A 93-100      A- 90-92      B+ 88-89      B 83-87      B- 80-82 C+ 78-79     C 73-77     C- 70-72       D+ 68-69     D 63-67       D-60-62     F 59&Below

*Google Classroom


Other Procedures and Expectations

  • ­ Bring all necessary materials with you every day---textbook, notebook, folder, pencils, pens—black and red

 

  • ­ You are responsible for getting missed work and notes due to an excused absence.

 

  •  You have two class periods to submit missed work. See my web page for updated       assignments.

 

  • ­ If you wish to pre-arrange an absence, get all worksheets and assignments before your absence. Be prepared for the next class: all assignments are due and all tests must be taken as scheduled. If you have questions, see me before the start of the next class.

 

  • ­ Extra credit does not exist. The grade you receive is the grade you earn.

 

*A student may receive an extension on an assignment if unusual circumstances arise.  This must be done prior to the due date—once the due date arrives, it is too late to request an extended deadline.

 

  • ­ I expect high quality work from you.

 

  • ­ It is each student’s job to avoid the appearance as well as the act of cheating. Cheating will result in two things: a failure of that assignment and an office referral.

 

  • If you need assistance or have a concern that you wish to discuss, do not hesitate to talk to me. I can be reached before school, during my prep period, or after school.

 

Let’s have a positive and productive learning experience! 


Any questions or concerns please contact me anytime!

Available for phone conversations--10:22-11:15  and after school 3:21-4:00
