Turning in Papers: - If the board says or if it is a late assignment, put it in the “turn it in” bin on the front counter. • If I collect work, pass it to the front. I will collect it as I walk by. • Heading must be on all work you turn in.
Classroom Discussion: • Please participate. • I want to hear what you have to say. • Raise your hand and wait to be called on. • Make all questions and comments relevant to the current discussion. • If your question is off topic, write it down and ask it later.
Moving Around the Room: - You must ask permission by raising your hand before getting out of your seat. - Do not ask to get up during a classroom discussion or while taking notes. - Get the supplies you need (paper, tissues, pencil sharpener, hand sanitizer…) as you walk in to class.
