Materials and Expectations:
Students will be required to take notes, participate in labs, complete and turn-in assignments and demonstrate mastery in multiple levels of assessment. To be successful in all of these areas, students will need to bring the following to class everyday:
4. Free Reading Book
Lab Practicals - essentially lab tests that students take in the lab over information they have learned during daily laboratory sessions.
Long-Term Projects - projects that require students to apply what they have learned, usually at the end of a quarter or semester. Long-term projects span the course of a month and may require students to work at home.
Short-Term Projects - projects that require students to apply what they have learned, usually at the end of a unit. Short-term projects span the course of a couple of days to a week and may require students to work at home.
Twenty-Minute Tuesdays (7th and 8th grade only) - every Tuesday students will be given a review assignment that can cover anything we have gone over throughout the year. It should take about 20 minutes to complete (give or take). Most Twenty Minute Tuesdays will be completed online.
Points are not deducted for late assignments. You are, however, required to complete every assignment. Refer to the student handbook for the school ICU policy and consequence for late assignments.
If you know in advance you will be absent, you may get your assignment in advance, and it will be due on the normal date. If you are absent from class for a reason other than a school activity, you will get extra time to complete the assignment. The standard policy is one day absent, two days to make it up.
