Things You Should Know
If you aren’t here, there isn’t much I can do for you. Make-up work will be available to you when you miss a day, but a lot goes on in class. Please plan to spend a little extra time with me outside of class after you are absent. It is your responsibility to check the website and complete all missed assignments and copy all missed notes. It is all available under the English III tab.
Have your stuff
Be prepared every day.
Here is what you will need to have:
Pen or Pencils
If you need help, ask for it. It’s kinda my job. I am available every morning before school for quick questions and every day after school for bigger problems. Please let me know during class if you are planning to stay after for tutoring.
It is never too late to ask for help.
Nope. I will give you plenty of time in class and out of class to get your work done. If you chose not to do it, I’m not going to give you more time and more work.
However.........There will occasionally be interesting extra-credit opportunities available on my website. Completed extra-credit assignment grades can replace missing assignment grades. Be sure to check it often.
There is a fine line between being awesome and being a disruption. Do your best to stay on the awesome side. If what you are doing is distracting the students around you or is distracting me, stop doing it. Here are some tips for being awesome:
Respect your classmates.
Know what is going on.
Ask questions when it is appropriate.
Don’t chat during the lesson.
Stay off your phone.
