Mr. David Gopee BA, BED, MED email@example.com 506-778-6078 (James M. Hill) Welcome to Mr. Gopee’s classroom. It is my goal this year that all my students become involved in an engaging learning experience. You will notice that we will be innovative in the class. In the room there are several creative tools. Recording equipment, 3D printing, Art supplies and other learning materials. I am also happy to inform you that we have also put in a wifi hotspot into the classroom in order to use readily available equipment for learning, such as cell phones and laptop computers. In order for us to accomplish our goal this year there are several things you should know about the procedures of this classroom. Mr. Gopee’s 5 “Ps” of success · Be PREPARED- Be ready for class- Bring all materials and be on time. Students will not be permitted to leave class during the first 15 minutes of class. · Be POLITE to each other- Respect is key to a healthy classroom environment and every student and teacher will respect the opinions of others. · PARTCIPATE in class- students will be expected to guide the learning through discussion. They will participate in presentations, group work, projects and other learning activities. · Be PROMPT- Pass in materials on due dates- Teacher will give enough time for each student to finish their work. If a student is unable to hand in assignments on the due date, they must talk with their teacher to receive an extension. (Extensions will not be given if student has not used the allotted time in a productive way.) Late work will be deducted 10% per day for 5 days. · Be PRODUCTIVE- Stay on task to maximize learning time. Cell phones and other distractions will not be tolerated in the classroom. The teacher may use these personal devices for learning activities because they are tools that help students. However when they are not engaged in a learning activity, cell phones should be put away. Staying on task is a valuable key to success.
