Hghlight2019-2020
General
Pre AP World History is designed to:.Lay a sound foundation for academic success in AP courses by fostering study, note taking, and writing skills
General
Tests, papers, assignments, and grading will, to the greatest extent possible, imitate the AP examinations themselves.
General
While in class, students will work on World history, and only history.  Work from other classes will beconfiscatedanddestroyed!.
General
Students are expected to complete each and every assignment given during a grading period!
Attendance
I take attendance at the very beginning of class from the seating chart.Daily attendance is mandatory. The gradebook is a legal document.If a student comes in tardy after I have taken attendance, there is the distinct possibility that I will not remember to mark the student tardy rather than absent.I am not going to interrupt my lesson to correct a tardy student’s attendance.
Make Up Work
Make-up work isENTIRELYthe student's responsibility!.Class notes should be obtained from anotherstudent.Assignmentsshould be obtained from another student or from me upon the student's return to class.
Make Up Work
Assignments due the day of an absence are due upon the student's return to class.If a student is in school at any time during the day when an assignment is due, the student is expected to bring the assignment by before leaving school.
Make Up Work
Tests must be made up on the day of a student's return to class,unless specific arrangements with me have been made in advance.Otherwise, the test is an "Z."
Preparation
Students are expected to have read all assignments in a timely fashion.
Preparation
All work handed in must be in blue or black ink, or typed.  Take-Home assignments must be typed.Work completed in pencil willnotbe graded at all!  This is not a whim.  Pencil is extremely difficult for me to read.
Preparation
Students who are unprepared for or inattentive in class will receive a participation grade of "F.".
Grades

Grades

Grades
Sustained, consistent improvement over the course  of the year is the basis for all decisions on teacher over-ride of a grade.  I have a strong preference for making such decisionsonlyat the end of the year.

Substitutes
Substitutes will be supported 100%  They willneverbe second-guessed. A substitute's word is law.Roll will be taken from the seating chart.  Students not in their proper seats will be marked absent.
Substitutes
All normal rules are in effect.  In addition, there are to be no passes of any kind issued.Any student mentioned unfavorably by a substitute will receive a detention from me upon my return, in addition to whatever disciplinary action the substitute may have taken
Extra Credit
Extra credit is possible provided that it is arranged ahead of time with me. It would be up to you to ask me for extra credit, and we would then agree upon an appropriate assignment.
Extra Credit
I generally allow extra credit if a student has given me good effort and has completed all required assignments.
