Class Rules

No games.  You are here to learn. You will be in front of the computer often, but you are not to play any games unless the assignment is to play a game.  And yes, we will play some educational games!

Food and drinks at tables only.  Nothing near computers!  No gum, no seeds, no drinks, no candy, nothing.  Ants come and litterbugs leave wrappers all over.

No put downs or rudeness.  My classes are happy, comfortable, and relaxed places for everyone.  If you need to spread negativity you will be dealt with according to the SLUSD discipline policy.  If you don't feel happy and welcome here, let me know and I'll fix it.

Tardiness is a bad idea.  Most of the teaching and what you are going to do in this class comes in the first 5 to 10 minutes of class.  If you miss any of this, you will be lost and not know what to do.  I'll still help you, but I have 30 students to help and they were here on time.

Keep your computer and area clean.  I always have paper and spray to clean your area and computer.  Use it.  We will clean the computers and tables once a week as a class but you don't know what that kids was doing in his nose last period.  Clean yours well and keep your wires arranged, not tied in knots.

Headphones on for music.

Yes, you may listen to music while working, but I don't want to hear it.  Keep your headphones on your ears, not on your neck or the top of your head while the music is blasting.  I shouldn't hear it and your neighbor shouldn't be annoyed by it either.  And don't spend 10 minutes setting up your playlist.

Good grades come to those who think and put effort into their work.  Getting it done is not enough.  You will get a D for just going through the motions and getting it done.  Put some thought and creativity into you work and your grade will be higher.  Don't cheat!  Copiers and cheaters will be given a zero on their assignment and once I know you're a cheater, I'm looking at everything you do very closely.
