U. S. History Disclosure

                Welcome to U.S. History class.  In this class you will be taught the information that you are required to learn as facilitated by the Utah State Curriculum.  This ‘statement’ will help outline the expectations and your responsibilities while in this class.  Your success will depend on your willingness to learn and participate during class.

        HOW TO SUCCEED:

·         Be on time (remember tardiness can affect your grades, Bellringers/startups).

·         Don’t be afraid to ask the teacher for help when needed.

·         Check your grade at least once a week.

CLASSROOM RULES:

        GRADING SCALE:

                  69-67=D-            66-64=D               63-60=D-              59-0 = F

-GRADES WILL BE BASED ON A PERCENTAGE FROM ASSIGNMENTS (50%) AND COMMON ASSESSMENTS (50%).  STUDENTS MUST SHOW MASTERY OF MATERIAL LEARNED IN CLASS.  THIS MEANS THEY NEED TO RECEIVE 70% ON EVERY TEST.

        MAKE-UP & LATE WORK:

·         Make up work will be in accordance with the CNJJHS Policy

·         Work not turned in on the due date will be considered late.

·         All late work will have 10% of the assignments point value docked each day it is late, until the fifth day is reached, the assignment will not be accepted after this.

·         Missing assignments are the student’s responsibility; they will be given a planner they can use to help them, however they are responsible to find out what they missed and turn them in.

·         Students may see what they are missing on SIS or from me, before or after school, they are not to disrupt the learning process (during class).

TARDIES:

·         Tardy 1 & 2                          Loss of Participation points.

EXTRA CREDIT:

·         We will be having extra credit assignments throughout each quarter.

·         It will be written on the board at the front of the class at the beginning of each term.  Due date will be two weeks before the end of the term.

·         There are no extra credit assignments to allow students to raise their grades (have your student explain this last part to you).

 

I may have a Teacher’s Aide in your student’s class period.  He or she may be filing assignments into the class’ student files.  These folders are for the students, so they will be able to see how much or what work they have completed throughout the quarter.  We will be correcting a few tests and assignments as a class, this has been proven to help students learn, but there will be no grade sharing or calling out etc.  Grades and scores, however will be posted on SIS, not anywhere in the classroom, there will be no FERPA infringements.  If you want to know your/students grades please see me before or after school, not during class.

 

By signing this form I agree that I have read and understand the attached Classroom Standards.  If I have any special needs, accommodations, or concerns that need to be taken into consideration, I will let Mr. Jensen know.
