Ms. Steiner's Classroom Norms and Procedures
What does it look like to be RESPONSIBLE?
Coming into Class
Head to your assigned seat and get out your notebook and begin working on the warm up question on the board or following any instructions Voice level 0 while I take attendance Tardy Policy: 3 tardies - Lunch DT with me 6 tardies - Admin Referral 9 tardies - Admin Consequence
True or False: You will receive one warning to put any phones away before I take them
Phones must be put away for the entire class period No warnings to put them away, I will keep any phones I see on my desk for the remainder of the period Refusal to give up phone will result in an office referral Headphones may be used ONLY IF they are connected to your laptop
Laptop usage is a key part of this class, but you must be on task Bringing a charged laptop is crucial! It is your responsibility to make up any work if you do not bring one to class No games or other websites while working on online assignments You will be asked to close any extra tabs if off task
What does it look like to be RESPECTFUL?
It is NOT okay to be hurtful towards anyone in the room It is NOT okay to be disrespectful You may have bad days, but that is not an excuse for disrespect It is NOT okay to walk out of class If you need a break, communicate with me It is NOT okay to be disruptive This will result in conversations with me, emails home, lunch detentions, and office referrals
E Hall Pass
Only one student out at a time to either the bathroom or nurse No passes during the first or last 5 minutes Fill out an E Hall pass, raise your hand to ask, then take the lanyard with you I will almost always say yes if it is an appropriate time. When I am giving directions or telling you crucial information is when I am going to say no, so wait for a good time!
Turning in Work
Paper assignments will be turned in to your class period's tray located on the back cabinet This is also where missing work will be located Online assignments will be turned in on Google Classroom All work is due by the end of the hexter!
Getting your Attention
Voices off in 3...2.....1..... This will give you enough time to finish any conversations Make sure you are level 0 voice unless directed otherwise
Let's Practice: Think, Pair, Share
Your question: You can have an unlimited supply of one thing for the rest of your life, what is it? Turn to your shoulder partner and whoever has the shortest hair will share first Discuss until you hear my quiet signal!
Do NOT pack up your materials until I give permission I promise to give you enough time! Push in your chairs Throw away any trash Do NOT line up at the door You may talk with your friends around the room when your area is clean, just not right at the door
One word to describe how you are feeling about this year!
