“The 5 Ps”
Prompt: Be on time, enter the classroom quietly, turn in homework, and immediately go to your assigned seat.
Prepared: Bring all materials, necessary work, and proper uniform every day. Materials include charged iPad, notebook, and school supplies. Please note that late assignments received the next day will receive half credit for the first quarter. No late assignments accepted after the first quarter.
Productive: Maximize learning time by staying on task, following directions, and remaining seated unless you’ve been given permission to get up. Grades will be based on the point system. More information about the point system can be found on the BTCS website.
Polite: Be nice to everyone. Respect yourself, your classmates, your teacher, and your classroom. Keep your hands, feet, and object to yourself.
Patient: Wait respectfully and calmly for your turn. Listen when someone is talking.
The grading system for this class is called the Total Points System. It requires a simple understanding of addition and division and does not involve weighted assignments or category percentages.
Each assignment or assessment is assigned a total number of points. The student’s overall grade is calculated dividing the total points earned by the total possible points. To assure that homework and quizzes are not valued the same as tests and major assignments, their respective point values are adjusted to coincide with the amount of content covered.
