Finish Class work Early What do I do next?
Finish Class Work Early Activities • Work on any assignments that you need to finish. • Write down some ideas for school commercials or PSAs in your composition notebook. • Review Media Terminology or notes in your composition notebook. • Help other people out. You never know when you might need them!
Scheduled Checkout • (Going home early for any reason) • Please let me know as you enter the classroom. I will be at the door. • Quietly raise your hand to get my attention. • Pack your materials and leave at the scheduled time. • If it is an emergency, quickly get my attention and I will assist you. • I do this because we do many projects outside of the room. I do not want to get a call from the attendance office telling me you are going home, and we can’t find you.
Turning in Papers • Class work will be put in your composition notebook or emailed to me. • It will be graded in class and then discussed. • I will take up your composition notebooks periodically to see if you are doing the assignments. • Any (Paper) project will be turned into me personally.
Classroom Discussions • Please participate, but raise your hand!! • I WANT to hear what you have to say. • Make all questions and comments relevant to the current discussion. • If your question is off topic, write it down and ask later or use Today’s Meet. • If we are in a lab setting working on projects, please use the green question mark to get my attention.
Moving around the room • You must ask permission. • DO NOT ask during a classroom discussion unless it is an emergency.
Class Dismissal • The teacher dismisses you, not the bell; Do not start packing up prior to the bell • You will work until you hear the duck alarm on my phone. This is a one minute warning to you so you can save anything you have and to clean up your area. • Wait until the teacher finishes and officially dismisses you. Please do not line up at the door.
Production Voices • There is a concept called “Production Voices”. It basically means that a crew’s voice level should be so low, that you can tell they’re talking, but can’t make out what they say between crews. • If voices get out of control, I will say “Quiet on the set!” • The reason for this rule is that I don’t want your great idea to influence or change someone else's. • Trust me it has happened.
Cell Phones • By district policy, you are allowed to have a cell phone on you for an emergency. • You are NOT allowed to use it during school time, unless it is in our lesson. • Please do not ask to charge your phone. Do that at home. If you aren’t texting in class, it won’t go dead. • If I see a phone, I will take it up and we will follow the new cell phone policy.
Fire Drill • The fire drill route is posted on the wall next to the front door. • We will line up at the door and travel in a single file line out to the softball fields. • The last person out the door will turn off the lights and close the door. • A volunteer (I’ll assign) will grab the flags and the attendance book. • I will take attendance outside. If you are not in line & do not respond, you will be counted missing and receive a consequence from the principal’s office.
Working Together • In the “Real World” you have to work together. You don’t always have to like the person you are with, but you have to be courteous and fair with each other. • I encourage you to work with other people besides your friends. Some of the best films come from groups of people who have different ideas.
Outside Filming Projects • Students will follow all Handbook Rules. • ALL students must have a valid picture ID & a Stampede Studios ID badge at all times. First one free; lost one $5 • You will address ALL adults with respect. • You will be mindful of the time and return when you are finished. No excuses. No Tardy Passes. • We do this because we have to make sure the equipment is returned and in working order.
Equipment Room • The equipment room is very different & has some new toys in it. We will discuss & play with them later. • We must checkout all equipment using the scanner. No one is allowed in the room unless you are assigned to work it. • You will trained on how to use this properly & each of you will be assigned a 2-week period in the room.
