    Notebook:

                A notebook is required for this class.  A three ring binder is the preferred notebook in order to keep notes and handouts in order.    All of the material you will need for tests and quizzes can be found in your notebook so it is important to stay organized so you can study.  The notebook sections can include: notes/handouts, homework, quizzes and unit tests, and current events.  Make sure you name and date everything.

    Class Participation:

                Class participation is an important part of health class.  If you are not in class, or if you are in class but not participating, then you are not benefiting from the learning experiences that are taking place.  You are an important part of the class and in order for the class to be interesting, fun, and a learning experience, we need everyone to join in.  You may gain or lose class participation points which are based on: being involved in group and individual activities, being on time for class, and being prepared for class every day.

     

    Homework:

             All homework is due at the beginning of class on the due date. Each homework is a maximum of 10pts. For every day that the homework is late (calendar day, excluding weekends, not class day) you will lose 2 points.
