 Without it, both your written and oral responses will lack detail and your ability to make connections among concepts taught will be limited.

* PAY ATTENTION.

Content is cumulative and a final exam will be given at the end of each unit. All activities and discussions are designed to help you master and retain content throughout the year.

* STAY ORGANIZED.

Learning science occurs when students interact with the information contained in their scientific notebook. Your notebook will be graded often.

* TRACK AND REMAIN AWARE OF YOUR GRADE/PROGRESS.

Mid-term deficiencies are sent for 1s and 0s only. Grades often fluctuate before and after midterms, so students are expected to keep parents informed of current grades via their notebook or through online grades.

!!!!!!ONLY IF YOU CONSISTENTLY ADHERE TO THE ABOVE EXPECTATIONS WILL YOU EARN THE GRADE YOU DESIRE!!!!!!
