classroom expectations
Classroom Expectations
  • Economics is a challenging course

class preparation
Class Preparation
  • Come to class everyday!!!
  • Be on time to class
    • In your assigned seat and working on warm-up by the tardy bell
  • Bring your dedicated Economics 3-ring notebook, paper, pencils and pen to class each day.
  • Be PREPARED TO WORK
class activities
Class Activities
  • Economics class is mostly guided, interactive, lecture and guided practice.
  • Keep good notes!!! This is most important
  • There will be class discussions and problem practice; it is important that you participate at all times
class behavior
Class Behavior
  • Only one person talking at a time. Raise your hand if you wish to ask questions or share your thoughts, you will be recognized.
  • NO SLEEPING OR PUTTING HEAD ON YOUR DESK—you will be asked to stand at the back of the room. If you are sick I will send you to the nurse.
  • NO FOOD, DRINK, CANDY, etc. Is allowed in my room. I already have enough pets and I don’t want any more.
cell phones electronic devices
Cell Phones, Electronic Devices
  • TURNED OFF AND PUT AWAY IN POCKET OR PURSE
  • If you choose to bring it out or SNEAK it in anyway I will ask for it to be returned only to parent at the end of the day.
  • If you refuse to surrender a cell phone or other electronic device I will submit a discipline referral for “Failure to Follow Instructions”
bags and purses
BAGS and PURSES
  • Place all bags and purses under your desk
  • The only material on your desk should be your economics notebook and textbook
  • Working on other class materials in not allowed
  • Bags and books are used as screens for prohibited classroom activity—AGAIN, PUT THEM UNDER YOUR DESK
  • I do and will walk the aisles so any bags or purses are a hazard…PUT THEM UNDER YOUR DESK
behavior toward others
Behavior Toward Others
  • Profanity, rude, condescending, racial, or derogatory remarks are NEVER appropriate even if “just kidding.” These remarks WILL NOT be tolerated.
  • If you disagree with a statement someone makes during an economic class discussions then you better back up your own statements with FACTS.
notebook
NOTEBOOK
  • You must keep an Economics NOTEBOOK in a 3-ring binder.
  • Your notebook MUST have 5 tab dividers—one for each unit.
  • Organize all papers, handouts, notes, EQ’s and Warm-ups, quizzes, etc. by UNIT
  • This NOTEBOOK counts as on-half of your final exam grade.
attendance and tardy
Attendance and Tardy
  • If you are not in your assigned seat when the tardy bell rings then you are tardy—3 tardies will receive a verbal warning. After 3 tardies after school detention will be assigned.
  • I will contact home for the first 3 absences you incur in this class. If you come in after half the class you are absent for the entire class. After 3 absences I will refer you the the attendance committee.
  • If you are passing and have 10 or more unexcused absences you will receive a NC (no credit) for the course.
make up work
Make-up Work
  • If you have one EXCUSED ABSENCE you have 2 days to make up any missed assignments.
  • If you have miss 2 or more days in a row due that is EXCUSABLE you have 5 school days to make up any missed assignments.
  • Assignments not made up in the allowed time will receive a zero (0) for the assignment.
  • Make-up tests will be ESSAY and Short Answer only.
late work
Late Work
  • Late work is generally NOT ACCEPTED.
  • Each situation of late worked will be judged on a case by case basis, but must have a compelling reason to be accepted.
  • Acceptance of LATE WORK is ALWAYS at the teachers discretion.
  • ALL accepted late work will have 10 percent (one letter grade) deducted for each day late.
assigned seats
Assigned Seats
  • You must always use your assigned seat unless directed to move someplace else by the teacher.
class dismissal
Class Dismissal
  • Class dismissal is not by the BELL
  • I will dismiss class after the bell has rung, and ONLY if EVERYONE IS IN THEIR OWN ASSIGNED SEAT.
  • Failure to follow dismissal instructions will result in the class being held after the bell.

  • Essential Questions will be posted daily. Write these into the EQ paper provided and answer them at the end of the lesson.
  • Beginning on Friday of next week—January, 18th you will turn in you Warm-ups and EQ’s for that week and this week. These will be collected each Friday for a weekly grade.
unit tests
Unit Tests
  • Each economics unit will have a unit test. These vary in length, but will normally be 40 to 50 multiple choice questions over material covered in class.
  • The dates for each unit test are posted in your syllabus.
  • The questions on the unit test are of the same type and level of difficulty as found on the EOCT.
failing a unit test
Failing a Unit Test
  • If you fail a unit test you may retake the test for a higher grade.
  • To retake the test you must meet with the teacher after school to go over you tested deficiencies before retaking the test.
  • Retakes must be done AFTER SCHOOL and BEFORE the NEXT UNIT TEST DATE
  • Students will earn the higher grade of either the retake or the original score.
extra credit work
EXTRA CREDIT WORK
  • There is NO EXTRA CREDIT WORK for this class.
  • The grade you have is the grade you earned.
unit sequence
Unit Sequence
  • Each unit in Economics is matched to a domain in the EOCT
  • Each domain in the EOCT counts 20 percent of that grade.
  • If you are having difficulty understanding the concepts in a particular unit you will likely have trouble with that portion of the EOCT as well.
  • In other words—PLEASE ASK FOR HELP IF YOU NEED IT; I WANT TO HELP YOU SUCCEED
work ethic
