Tips for Student Success
Learning Adobe software can be very frustrating and challenging. I am always here to assist, but the majority of the learning happens when the user solves the problems on their own. Most professionals attribute their learning to amount of “seat time” they have spent at the computer. The longer the student is exposed to the software interfaces, the more familiar the solutions become. Patience is the key when learning a software program. PERSEVERANCE is very important in this class.
Academic Support at BHHS
• An Extended School Day bus will be available to all students each Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday after school, starting the third week of school, so that students will be able to get extra help from teachers or form study groups on those days. The bus(es) will leave at 4:30 pm.
• Below, list the names of two or three students in this class who will agree to help you if you have questions, or who might be interested in forming a study group for Tuesdays/Thursdays
Classroom Behavior Expectations and Consequences
In accordance with BHHS school-wide expectations, students in this class will exhibit behaviors of Bruin PRIDE:
In my classroom, this means that student will:
•not bring food or beverages into the computer lab
•come prepared to work hard
•refrain from playing games or using social media on the computers
•keep phones in a backpack or bag unless called-for in an assignment
Cell phones are totally disruptive to learning. In this class, ALL students are required to silence their phones and put them away in their backpacks. Unless I give express permission for you to use your phone, and I see your cell phone, I will not take your phone, but I will give you a paper bag. By signing this syllabus, you agree to put your phone in the paper bag (which will then be stapled) and put the phone on your desk to remain there until the end of the class.
If a student does not understand my expectations, I will re-teach them so that the student understands. If the student is actively choosing not to meet basic classroom expectations, the following consequences will apply:
1st consequence = reteach my expectations / conference after class
2nd consequence = parent contact
3rd conswequence = assign student to stay after school in my classroom on Tues. or Thurs. Student will take the Extended School Day bus home
4th consequence = administrative referral / consequence to be determined by administration
