Introduction to CatholicismExpectations, Rules, and Grading Policy
As always, all school policies are enforced in this class. The following
rules are intended to insure the best quality of teaching/learning that can occur. The
student is expected to be clear and familiar with these class rules and expectations.
Come ready to think and stretch your mind. This is essential. Intelligent questions are encouraged. You are not expected to agree with everything I say but you are expected to understand
what I am talking about.
Always bring: 1) textbook, 2) workbook, 3) notebook and folder, 4) laptop
You can have either a ring binder or spiral
notebook. Make sure you have a large folder to collect and save articles, tests,
assignments, and other handouts. These will be essential for the exams.
By the time the late bell rings, you should
already be at your desk with homework out or handed in and engaged with the assignment on the board. Backpack should be under desk and out of the aisle.
Always be on time.
Be quiet and orderly during class.
Always demonstrate respect towards your peers
and the teacher and you will receive the same.
Stay focused on the task at hand: follow directions,
take clear, accurate notes, ask questions.
If you arrive late to class you will be told
to go to Mr. Corollo’s office. He is the one who will decide whether you
receive a detention or late pass.
Should you disregard a class rule, expect
to be warned once by the teacher to get back on task
Should you need to be corrected twice in one
class, a detention will be received.
Corrected three times by the teacher results
in being sent to Mr. Corollo’s office
Recurring negative, disruptive behavior or
failure to give adequate effort in class will result in a call to your parents
PLEASE NOTE: Each class will begin with a prayer. Students
are expected to observe silence prior to the prayer, and to participate appropriately.
The teacher’s quiet presence in the front of the class is your cue to attend to the teacher in silence and await
the sign of the cross.
A total point score will be assigned for each
homework, test, independent project, or in-class assignment. Each student will
be able to calculate his own grade by dividing points accumulated by the number of total points for the marking period to
reach a percentage grade.
be posted on the website by Sunday night before the week starts and posted in the room.
Homework will not always be graded (reading assignments for example). Homework
will be worth 10 points each. There will be approximately one graded homework per week. All homeworks are to be typed. If a homework is not handed in during class, it is considered late. Half the points will be taken off (5pts.). Students have one
school day to hand in work. After that a zero is given for the assignments
Expect at least two 100 point tests and five
10 point quizzes.
are tabulated by adding the total number of points received by the student and
dividing it by the total number of possible points: e.g., 400 pts (earned)/ 450=88.
