Academic Expectations
I expect students to come to class prepared to learn and give their best effort at the material we are studying.  I expect students to complete homework assignments in a timely manner and pay attention to the lesson being taught.  Students are asked to think critically and express their thoughts in written assignments often, through the use of daily responses.  Students are expected to study for quizzes and exams, and they are quizzed often on the reading homework.  Students are encouraged to participate in class through a variety of opportunities and to take notes during class, however these are not required.  I expect students to emulate the PCSS core values of fairness, compassion, honesty, responsibility, respect, and courtesy.

Grading Policy
Students are graded based on the following assignment categories.  The Social Studies Department scoring categories are as follows:
                                                   Summative Assessment:  70%  (Tests, Projects, Essays, Debates)
                                                    Formative Assessment:  30%   (Classwork, Quizzes)
