TRANSITION, ENGLISH, ALGEBRA, BIOLOGY, & U.S. HISTORY II
Students will be graded on their classwork, homework, quizzes, tests, projects and participation. Students are graded on effort and ability. Accommodations and modifications will be implemented when necessary. Students are expected to participate and provide their input when appropriate. The teacher will also prepare the students for a test with a study guide and an extensive review in class.
Throughout each class, I try to use movement as much as possible and I give the students a "brain break." This is basically a 5 minute activity that is not related to the lesson, but it gives the students a few minutes to relax and move around the classroom before beginning the next activity.
