Students participated in a chapter test last Thursday; overall, great news!

 On Thursday, October 11th, Mr. Schin's students will pursue an excerpt of the writings of Thomas Paine, entitled Common Sense. The students will work with a partner and paraphrase Paine's writing. Expanded command of vocabulary probably unknown for most students is one of Mr. Schin's lesson intentions.

The faculty at NCMS are continually attempting to equip students to improve their written communication skills.

Having pointed this out, please be aware that homework will be handled in the following manner:

1. Answers to homework questions will be required to be submitted in the form of a complete sentence.

2. Students must restate some of the question as a part of the answer.

3. Students who do not adhere to the first two points may not receive full credit for an answer.

Homework completely answered and on time will receive 100%; homework completely answered but turned in a day late will receive 50%...not turned in by the second day, will receive 0% credit.

Students need to have the following items when they come back to school for the 2010-2011 school year:

Pencils (NOT mechanical, please) ... at least 1

Pen ... 1

 

A notebook folder ... 1 (Mr. Schin will show students during the first week; this can be with or without metal tabs for holed paper, but it MUST have pockets to be used to hold items [just two pockets, one on either side of the fold]). The notebook pages MUST BE NUMBERED sequentially, each item having the number written on it in the upper right corner; each item needs to be dated and titled, as well.

Students will be required to cover the text book assigned to them, unless specifically told otherwise. Some of the books' bindings are failing and covering them with the new book socks is more detrimental to the condition of the book than not having a cover.

Mr. Schin's grading method uses a points system. The grades are pointed as follows:

Tests and Quizzes..............................................100 points

Class work..........................................................25 points

Homework..........................................................10 points

Projects..............................................................30 points

Participation and preparation...................................5 points
