Homework Quizzes: these are the same as in-class quizzes--this means no help from anyone or anything--do your own work! Most of these will be online research or video/audio comprehension activities through my website.

Website: Find and use my site through the District page to check homework assignments, project, quiz, and composition dates, discussion posts (as quizzes), and general information about the course.

Website French 2 students: French 2 students will create a www.edmodo.com student account. This will be used for homework, writing quizzes, and for study alerts.

On-line Translators: you are not permitted to use an online translator for compositions, homework, projects, or any other work that calls for you to compose sentences. If caught using a translator, you will be written up as having breached the school’s Academic Integrity Policy. You may, however, use a print or on-line dictionary to check spelling and to find new vocabulary, or to verify the meanings of words.

Cell phones, mp3 players, Cameras, etc.: absolutely no use of electronic devices in the class. Turn them off and put them away. Do not leave them on your desktop or cradle them in your hand or I will bite you!
Never ever videotape, record the voice of or photograph anyone in the classroom (teacher or student) without their written or witnessed verbal consent.
There can be sever consequences for invading one's privacy in the classroom!

Eating:
generally against school policy. Please ask before indulging.

Respect: each person deserves it and each person will give it. The practice of respect is also allied to your participation grade.

Participation (see rubric on documents page): do not be bashful—this is worth 10% of each marking period grade. Please look over the rubric and understand that there are four different categories of participation, each worth ¼ of total grade.

Late work (homework, projects, compositions, etc.): generally, I do not accept late work. I will, however, seriously entertain your reasons for asking to hand in delinquent work. Check my site and pay attention in class to know when assignments are due. An absence is not always an acceptable reason for late work. Never forget that making up late work because of an absence is ALWAYS the student's responsibility. I will not track down a student to make sure all course work has been completed before grades are recorded for the marking period.

Tardiness: I will mark you late if you enter after the bell rings.

Bathroom: Just go to the nearest one, but quickly. Do not interrupt class to ask if you can go to the bathroom.

Extra-help: If you think you need it, just want it, or I suggest it, we need to sit down and discuss options. Often, an upper-classmate can be found to spend time with you during school hours or after school. If you do not understand what we are doing in class, do not wait, see me immediately.

Studying: I do not assign formal (written) homework assignments every night—but you have a standing order to study what we are doing in class every night. Do not put off studying for the night before a quiz—this is a terrible way to approach language learning.

Extra credit: None is given. Please do not ask. Grades are not "bumped." You have a year's worth of assessments of many different types to achieve the grade you desire. No exceptions!

Grading (excluding Midterm and Final assessments): each marking period grade is weighted accordingly--
assessments 80%
homework 10%
participation 10%
