The following classroom procedures apply to my Sophomore Scripture classes as well as my World Religion Classes.
For a Syllabus for each class, please consult the individual webpage.
You, the student, are responsible for all class work (notes, homework, quizzes, tests, etc.) whether you are present or not. If you should miss a class for whatever reason, it is expected that you will come to the next class aware of what went on in your absence and be prepared to fully participate in that class. It is recommended that you know the phone number or email address of a reliable classmate so that you can find out what you missed. You are expected to come to class each day with appropriate text(s) and a notebook and be actively engaged in the classroom experience.
IF YOU ARE ABSENT:
If you are absent on the day of a quiz, test or homework check and it is an excused absence, you have 2 days to make up that work. For example, if you are absent on Tuesday, then the work must be made up by Thursday afternoon. . Cycled out days count as a day! Special arrangements will be made if you are absent for a prolonged period. Quizzes and tests are not to be made up during class time. Since quizzes and tests are usually announced several days in advance, being absent the day before a quiz or test does not absolve you from taking the quiz or test on the announced day. While unannounced quizzes are not the general rule, they are nevertheless a possibility. It is assumed that part of each night's homework is a review of the day's notes, key names, terms and themes.
Homework may be checked daily or weekly depending on the assignment. If homework is undone or incomplete the day it is checked, you may pass it one day late for half credit. Homework passed in more than a day late will receive no credit at all.
A point system will be used. Points will be given for homework, quizzes, tests, reports, class presentations, etc. All points have equal value. At the end of the grading period, your percentage of the total possible points will determine your grade. Class participation is expected. Above average class participation could help a borderline grade. For example, a student with 79% of the total number of points could be given a B- if he has been an active contributor to class discussions. Poor class participation could have the opposite effect. When absent, it is your responsibility to pass in homework to receive appropriate points.
ACADEMIC HONESTY AND INTEGRITY:
School policy will be followed. Please consult the Student/Parent handbook.
