This is a slideshow about how we are going to excel together in class this year.
1) Something I’m good at is…
2) I wish I could learn about _________ in school.
My anger triggers: taking a joke too far, verbal attacks, sarcasm, bullying.
Are these anger triggers fair to others?
Some of them, no….
But that’s true of anyone’s triggers!
4) What are your anger triggers?
On the board you will find:
Your job is to get settled and begin your bell work when class starts. Lunch time is the time for catching up with your friends
Pencils are in the cup at the front of the room. I will try to keep them sharpened ahead of time.
Help yourself when I am not giving instruction.
6) By the time I graduate, I want to be able to…
Don’t block the aisles
Binders/folders on blue shelf
Do not wander around during direct instruction. I will try to provide short stretch breaks so you won’t rot away or freak out.
If we’re going to the media center or something, wait for my dismissal, and stick to the right hand wall in the hallways. We travel as one. You must be within 15 feet of me always.
8) Life after high school seems ______ because ______
1) put your materials away and return borrowed pencils
2) trash in the trash can
3) Bring your point sheet to my desk to be signed
4) Wait quietly away from the door. No mobs.
At the back of the room, there are three metal trays.
You are responsible for getting your work into the correct tray on time.
Do not hand me your work. I may lose it.
You are responsible for collecting your work and asking questions about it.
“The number of days allowed to complete make-up work will be equal to the number of school days the student was absent plus one additional day.” (Code of Conduct, pg. 9)
Do not let a partial credit opportunity become a “0”
As per the student handbook, “Notes must be turned in within 5 days of absence in order to be counted.” (pg. 5)
If you miss class, excused or unexcused,
you will fall behind. I know. I’ve done it.
Try not to do it.
Aunt Bert says: “Even if you’re tired, come to school, and your life will be easier in the long run.”
10) My favorite thing to read about is (technology, animals, etc.)
11) My favorite genre is (fiction, newspaper, etc.)
There are lots of different kinds of learners in this room, but none are “smarter” than others.
Force yourself to ask questions!!!!
This has nothing to do with personality or intelligence; it is a strategy that anyone can use and improve
In high school and college, I made myself ask questions when I was stuck or unsure.
It felt silly at the time, but I often noticed that people were writing down the teacher’s answer….
What do you think that means?
I never remember the lessons I taught.
I remember what students said and did!
Without your participation, this is just an empty shell.
If you sit like a bump on a log, classes will probably not be interesting, and you won’t be able to pass the class.
If you say to yourself, “how can I strive to learn something today and help others do the same?” then we’ll have a great time.
Pair up with your shoulder partner and learn 3 cool facts about him/her, then introduce to the class. (60 seconds apiece, then 30 seconds per introduction)
If time: 4 truths and a lie
There are right and wrong ways to use them. The wrong ways are wrong because they are unsafe for us and for the tools.
Proper use of tools is about being employable, and is about dignity and respect.
Your use of tools will be reflected in your daily process points as well as performance based scoring rubrics in the gradebook. I will provide these rubrics to you.
