Classroom Expectations:

It is expected that a student who was absent or left school with an excuse will turn in the work assigned as soon as they return to school. They will have the same number of days to complete assignments as they were excused absent.  Students who were truant, will not be allowed to make up work.

Instructional strategies will accommodate most learning styles and reinforce reading, writing and social science skills through use of the Interactive Student Notebook, quizzes, tests, research based on various historical issues learned in class, reading, writing, and other various projects as they pertain to the topic being learned while learning historical content.  Periodical school and district testing will be administered. There will be homework assignments as needed. If the student cannot finish classwork in the allotted time, it becomes homework.
