1. Do I have to have a three ringed binder for U.S. History?

I want each student to be prepared with the proper materials for learning every day. You are expected to bring your binder, textbook, pen, pencil, highlighter, and a positive attitude to class each day.

2. Is chewing gum and/or food allowed in class?

In accordance with the Newport News Public Schools policy, you are not to bring any beverage or eat food of any type in class. However, bottled water is allowed.

3. How often can I expect homework and when is it due?

You should expect a homework assignment every night in United States History and it is due on my desk upon your entrance into the classroom. I will greet students at the door each day and I expect you to enter the classroom, put your homework assignment in the box on my desk, take your seat and begin the DO NOW activity posted on the board/overhead.

IB History of the Americas II students will have homework 90% of the time (see syllabus) and can expect a Reading Quiz, Test, or Socratic Seminar everyday in class.

4. Since you frequently provide class notes, am I expected to take notes?

The class notes serve as a guide, particularly in the event that you are absent from class. However, they are not intended to replace good note taking on your part, and should not be abused as such. You are expected to record blackboard and PowerPoint notes in your notebook. I will collect your notebooks and assign a test grade for notebooks prior to your 9 weeks grading periods.

5. Will I have access to my child's grades?

Each student will be assigned a secure ID, different from their student ID, which can be used to access their grades from this site. Students, and their parents will only have access to their grades, and students are strictly prohibited from sharing their secure ID with other students. Grades will be posted for review on the second and fourth Friday of each month.
