- If your Cohort is remote you must be in your SFP Polo and have your Lanyard on, you must also be on screen at all times and be at a desk or table.. you also must also have headphone or airpods on.. this will help you concentrate on the class and ensure that only you will be listening to the class.. there is no eating while on the google meets and please make sure to use the bathroom while you are waiting to start class (while you are not logged in to the meet)

Homework / Grading Policies:
Your Grade is based on Total Points
“The measure of a great AP class isn’t your grade at the end of it, but rather your knowledge and interest in the material in which it was meant to provide.”
~ Craig M. Grimm
Readings / Homework:
In order to be successful in this college-level course, you must complete all readings and assignments prior to class discussions. Course readings are substantial and essential to your success in the class, as they will figure prominently in quizzes and examinations. In my mind this is your most important class!!!
NO LATE HW WILL BE ACCEPTED
Term quizzes and pop up quizzes will be given through out the quarter. Unit outlines that are handed in on the day of a Unit test are counted as quizzes.
Tests are given at the end of a Unit and are comprised of Multiple Choice and an FRQ. Tests are worth
All Multiple Choice and FRQ's will be completed on Socrative and will be done within the class period.
Term/Vocabulary/Identification Assignments are due for each Unit the day before the test
All assignments/projects etc are expected to be handed in on time.
Assignments will be due by 8:25am on the due date.
Any assignment uploaded after this date and time will not be accepted.
Be sure to complete and upload the assignments in a timely manner.
If you are absent the day of a test or quiz you must be prepared to take the test/quiz the day you return.
If there is a serious reason why you are unable to hand in an assignment or take a test you MUST see me before class to discuss.
“Absences do not excuse classwork, assignments or exams. In case of absence, it is your responsibility to make up all classwork/exams/quizzes and submit all assignments that are due in the appropriate time frame discussed by the teacher. Until assignments/exams are completed, a zero will be placed into PowerSchool. There are no exceptions.”
If you fall behind in this class please do not hesitate to contact me to set up an appointment or see me after class for any questions/concerns you may have.
The teacher has the right to revise the syllabus at any time. If a revision takes place, the teacher will notify all students in writing.
