    Classroom Expectations:

    All school rules set forth by the Greater Egg Harbor Regional High School District are in effect in my classroom.  In addition to the rules set forth by the board of education, you are expected to:


    -Be positive and respectful:  if you wish to address the teacher, or the class, first raise your hand.  Respect other people’s opinions. You may not agree with them, but that does not mean they are wrong.

    -Be prepared:  this means bringing your textbook, notebook, pens/pencils every day.

    -Be punctual:  be seated, materials ready to go, working on “Warm Up” when the bell rings.  This counts as a daily assignment and will affect your grade.

    -Be polite:  no disruptions to the learning process of any kind will be tolerated.  Do not interrupt the learning by speaking out of turn, or while the teacher is talking.  Please raise your hand to speak or engage the class. Remain in your seat unless otherwise instructed and do not engage in any disruptive behavior.


    Grades:  Grades will be based on a total point system.  This means that every assignment is worth a certain amount of points and your score will be a percentage of those points.  For example, if you score a 15/20 on an assignment that is worth 20 total points, your score is 75%. Each assignment, whether classwork, homework, test, quiz, or project, has an assigned point value.  Simply, your grade is what you earned divided by the total possible points.


    Absence from class:  If you are absent from class, it is YOUR responsibility to find out what you missed from either the teacher or another student.  You will have as much time as you were absent to make up the work, otherwise it is a zero. A zero will greatly change your grade.

    Student Work:  Late work will not be accepted, unless an exception is granted by the teacher.  Student work must be completed in blue or black ink, or typed (typing is encouraged because it is faster and neater, but not required).  NO PENCIL. Pencils will be used on Scan-Tron/Zipgrade tests. Students must also use correct heading on every assignment. This includes full name, date, period, and assignment name.  Points will be deducted if any or all of these are left out of the work.

    Cheating:  The History Department is in full support of the school’s policy on cheating.  Cheating of any kind will not be tolerated, and will result in a ZERO and other consequences to be determined by the teacher and school administration.
