Classroom Materials Requested:
Google Classroom is a free and secure learning network for teachers, students, and schools. It provides a safe way for us to connect, share content, access homework, participate in discussions and receive class information. It is a free service and most students already have an account. It is important that students check Google Classroom every day to keep track of due dates and missing assignments. Students can also access their accounts from any mobile device outside of class.

As a supplement to Google Classroom, my classes also have access to the classroom website. This will substitute the use of a textbook and all content information can be found here. Students may use this to study for exams, gain extra practice, and access resources. Follow this link to access the ful site. https://bit.ly/2Lwtlmi
Absent/ Late Work Policy
Any work assigned is due by the due date. Late work receives a 10 point deduction on the first day it is late. On the second day, the assignment is considered a 0 in the gradebook. If you are absent, check Edmodo to see if you have missed any assignments. You have one day (per day absent) to turn the assignment in. Although almost all work will be completed in class, it is the student’s responsibility to receive extra help on their own time or complete assignments at home. If a test was announced before a student’s absence, the test will be made up when the student returns to class.
