Homework

Homework is an extension of the activities done in class. It may
also be a preparation activity for the next day's lesson. I try
to provide students with the opportunity to manage their own time and
responsibilities, therefore I post work for the week to accomplish this 
goal. 
However, I may make changes as we go depending on how we were able to 
carry out the objectives and goals for each day.

At the beginning of EVERY class, students need to check the Homework wall 
in class and enter any changes to their Pride Planner for that day. 
Students 
that are asked to do work over or who do not finish classwork will have to 
enter that specific work in their planner. It won't be entered on this 
page.

Reading every night for 30 minutes is expected and it is recommended that 
students read their AR books.
AR policy: Required points are 20 per trimester and by the end of the 
final 
grading at the end of the year, students should have 60. I require 10 per 
grading period (EVERY SIX WEEKS.)
The level students choose to read is based on their test score and it is 
up 
to them to find those books and have their parent approve. This is a 
quiz/project grade and it is very important. 

AR Due Dates (for my class): 
Sept. 12
Oct. 24
Dec. 08
Feb. 09
April 6
May 18
They should have a total of 10 points by each date.


NO NAME papers will be considered missing, please remember your PROPER 
HEADING on 
every assignment.

Late Pass Policy:  Students may 
turn in a late work with Parent signature only. 
IMPORTANT:
If students have completed a late assignment on STUDYSYNC, then they must 
submit it online and ALSO print it out and have it signed by a parent. 

Parents may want to establish what they feel is an appropriate 
limit for late work. I believe we need 
to teach students to become quality citizens and raised with the awareness 
of being 
accountable for their choices. That said, students should be in the good 
habit of 
turning in work on time. Therefore, the consequence for untimely work is a 
lower grade and lower citizenship marks.

UPCOMING Tests, quizzes, or projects:  

LA: Study Sync Unit 1 Turning Points Unit Assessment TBA, Extended Writing 
Project tent. 10-24
SS:  grammar days tba and chapter 2 test 10-18
TEST/QUIZ CORRECTION POLICY: All tests and quizzes can be corrected for up 
to 
70%. Students must attach their original test to their complete answers, 
(Incorrect questions are written out on a separate paper and answered 
completely.) If there is a book, they will need the page and paragraph 
number of the location of the answer.

MY RECOMMENDATIONS FOR COMPLETING HOMEWORK AND GENERAL STUDY:
Studies have shown that students who review and reflect on all class 
lectures retain at 
least 30% more of the information.

STUDY SYNC: Any written assignments should be done on a Google Doc so that 
data 
might be transferred to the StudySync site as needed. Unless requested, do 
all Access 
4 pages on loose paper or on a printed out copy of the page downloaded and 
printed 
from your home computer.

VOCABULARY: Complete 2 or 3 words on the template guide each night with a 
review 
of the previous night's words. By Thursday, have all words done on 
templates and then 
have your parents give you a quiz on them. Relearn any missed words. 

GRAMMAR: Daily Grams are intended to work on during Homeroom class. 
However, 
you may choose to work on them on your own time, with the work done by 
Social 
Studies class each day. If you have specific questions, Google/YouTube 
concepts until 
we review them in class. There will be quizzes at various times. 

SOCIAL STUDIES: Always reread the section and make notes based off of 
topics 
covered in class. Putting the page numbers next to the answers will help 
you study for 
the quizzes and tests. Review the vocabulary words and concepts for each 
section.
