Welcome to the Magical Realm of United States History
I would like to welcome you and your child to my class. In order for your child to reach their full potential, it is necessary for not only the student, but the parent, to be fully informed of all expectations. Eighth grade U.S. History and Pre-AP U.S. History is focused on listening, speaking, reading, and writing skills. I have very high expectations for my students and I expect the students to have the same for themselves. To create a positive classroom learning environment, I have one statement that encompasses all:
EVERYONE has the right to learn. NO ONE has the right to interfere with the learning and safety of others.
➢ Be Courteous!
✓ I expect you to treat one another and me with respect.
✓ Put downs will not be allowed.
✓ One person speaks at a time.
➢ Be Prepared!
✓ Bring all necessary materials to class daily.
✓ This includes:
▪ agenda book
▪ Your Interactive Notebook (3-ring binder with 5 dividers)
▪ pens and pencils
▪ colored pencils
▪ index cards
▪ any practice/assignments
➢ Be On Time!
✓ Be in your seat and prepared to work each day.
➢ STANDARDS-BASED GRADING SYSTEM IS USED
