About this class:
Our Social Studies class will focus the following major topics:
- United States History & Government/Civics
- The Holocaust and Human Behavior/Tolerance
Class work and Participation: 20%
(CW: 15%, Class Participation: 5%)
Basic Format and Procedure:
Upon entering class, students are required to be seated in their assigned seats when the bell rings. Students are to take out the assigned homework (if applicable) and have it ready on their desks to be checked or collected. Students are required to copy the homework in his/her student planners. Students are to date and number a page in his/her notebook and copy/complete the “Do Now” that will be on the board. (If there is not an assignment on the board, students are to wait for instruction from the teacher.) Notebook checks will be conducted and count as a project grade. Notebooks will be left in class. (see separate instructions about the Interactive Notebook)
Students must write and complete any “Do Nows”, notes, class work, journal writing, “Exit Slips/Tickets”, etc.
Late to Class: Students entering late to class without a signed pass from a faculty member must take a “Late to Class Form” and complete each item on the slip. You are then to turn in the “Late to Class Form” in the appropriate envelope located by the entrance/exit.

There are many opportunities to earn rewards throughout the school year in class. If students are following the classroom expectations (see above), they will be rewarded a Knight Token. Students can then use those tokens at the School Store or for items offered by the teacher. We may play a game in class to review for a test or quiz where the winning team will be rewarded a prize.
I may offer a class contest where good behavior will be rewarded with free time.
Prizes/Rewards may include but are not limited to:
- Homework Pass
- Positive Report Phone Call Home
