French 4


1.     All students are expected to be respectful to each-other at all times.  This includes:

a.     No talking while I, or another student is speaking.

b.     Raising hands to ask a question.

c.     Treat others as you would want to be treated.

d.     Foul language, rudeness, or general disrespect for others will NOT be tolerated.

2.     For this class, you will have access to a computer and the internet.  As a result, you are required to accept the terms of the district's Acceptable Use Policy.  If your parent denies your use of the internet, paper resources will be available.

3.     Since most of the work for this class will be completed independently, you are expected to be 100% responsible and respectful while you are working in the library.  If I hear one less than perfect report, you will lose your access to technology, and return to the classroom.

4.     If students are absent, it is up to them to collect their work, and catch-up with the rest of the class.  I will provide all make-up work without hesitating, but I will not ‘hound’ students to turn it in.  Each student will have as many days to make up their work as days of class that were missed.  (however, exceptions can be made)  Please let me know as far in advance as possible if you are planning on being absent!

5.     If a student chooses to break a school or classroom rule in my class, the disciplinary actions will follow those listed in the Student Handbook.

6.     Homework is to be completed on-pace with the assigned material.  Each Friday, you will leave your workbook with me so that I can grade your work.  

7.     Even though this class will largely be an independent study, you will still receive a weekly conversation grade.  We will choose a date to meet in Advisory to speak in French.  This grade will be 15 points per week, and will depend on your fluency, effort, and participation in the discussion.

8.     The amount of homework points included in a grading period will vary, there will always be 15 points per week for conversation, and there will also be various projects or tests/quizzes throughout the grading period.  The tests/quizzes will also vary in points, but will surely be worth more than the homework grades.  In this class, we will also have a larger focus on the assessment grades.  The grading scale is listed in the Student Handbook.

9.     For this class, you are responsible for your own organization.  At the very least, you should come to class each day with a French-only binder, notebook paper, workbook, and a writing utensil. 

10. If you need extra help with the material, please do not hesitate to ask me.  I will have struggling students meet with me during Advisory Period, but if you need additional help we can set up a tutoring schedule.  Also, if you have any questions or comments about class, please do not hesitate to contact me!

11. Throughout the year, we will be using Edmodo to communicate in French.  This will give you more opportunities to practice your use of the language.  Each week I will post a discussion question, and you will be required to respond to the question appropriately.  You will also be required to respond to at least 2 postings made by your classmates, as well as create 2 original postings per week.

12. There is also a possibility that we will be conducting French lessons at the preschool throughout the year.  If this is the case, you will be given a grade for each day that we go to the preschool.  If you are absent, you will miss out on your daily grade.
