General information and expectations for each class 
Please come to class on time and be prepared to participate and learn.  
You will need your spiral notebook or binder everyday. If you have an electronic 
device such as a cell phone, tablet, or any other device, I encourage to bring one to class.  
The devices are NOT to be used for personal entertainment. I will incorporate technology often and will tell you when and how  to use your device in class.
Some of  the tech tools we use in class are SNAPchat, Twitter, Nearpod, Remind, Quizlet, Quia, Google classroom, I Pads with Apps like Adobe Spark, IMovie, Aurasma, Vocaroo,Kahoot,  Duolingo and many more.
