CURRICULUM: Students will be exposed to the historical geographic, political, economic, and sociological events, which influence the progression of Florida, including but not limited to, the evolution of Florida's diverse heritage through Spanish, French, British and American occupations, all the way to modern day Florida's successes and challenges, and the projection of Florida's future development.

 

Due to the curriculum and content of this course, aspects of new, non-traditional, or unfamiliar cultural practices and norms will be presented to students as a part of the class. The purpose of allowing students to observe various types of behaviors, clothing, and values is to offer a global perspective on many cultures, so that they may gain an appreciation and understanding for the influence of culture on beliefs and actions of specific groups of people.   

 

Students will be regularly assessed (tested) on material learned using these standards.  This course has a semester, teacher-generated exam.    

      

Students will complete assignments on a daily basis.  Class work automatically becomes homework if not completed by the end of the period.  All work is due the following day. (Exceptions are absent students, ESE, ELL, or 504 students with extended time).  

   

GRADING POLICY:   My policy is that 70% of the grade will be based on quizzes and tests, 30% on classwork/homework.  Students who have an excused absence from school will have 5 school days to make up their work. A “Z” or zero will be placed in the grade book for missing work and will remain until the absence is excused and the work is made up. It is the responsibility of the student to get any missed work due to an absence, complete it, and turn it in for a grade.    

 

PHONE:   833-3614. If I am teaching, your call will be forwarded to my voicemail.  Just leave a message.  I will return your call during my planning period or at the end of the day. 

 

EMAIL:   Choctaw’s web page will give you a link where you will be able to send me an email message.  I will respond during my planning period or at the end of the day. My email address is gaineys@okaloosaschools.com. NOTE - STUDENTS SHOULD ACCESS THEIR SCHOOL EMAIL REGULARLY.

 

OTHER COMMUNICATION:   On Choctaw’s web page, you will find the following links to me (1) my teacher webpage, (2) my teacher online assignment folder, and (3) and/or Google Classroom through Class link.  

 

CONFERENCE:   All parent/teacher conferences are scheduled through the Guidance  office at 833-3614. It is my suggestion that the student attend the conference.

 

 DISCIPLINE:   The students will be receiving and reviewing the school district’s Code of Conduct and Choctaw High School’s Discipline Action plan (in the agenda/planner book).  In addition, my class will review specific Class Rules and Procedures. My plan, based on the infractions are as follows: 

1)Verbal warning 

2)Private consult. 

3)Parent contacted 

4)Office referral 

 

SUPPLIES:  Students will need a folder/binder or notebook, paper, and pencils.     

 

HOMEWORK HELP:   Students who may be experiencing difficulty understanding the subject matter (classwork, homework, or studying for a quiz/test) may request help by simply asking.  Tutoring is Tuesdays through Thursdays from 2:00-3:00. Students should consult with their parent/guardian regarding the day they choose to stay after school for assistance. 

 

EXTRA CREDIT:  There will be many opportunities for extra credit each quarter.  Students will be informed of each opportunity. 

 

ABC OF SUCCESS 

 

A—attendance matters.  If You’re not IN SCHOOL, you're NOT learning. 

B—Behavior matters.  If you are misbehaving (and get sent out of class), you’re not learning. 

C—Completing all ASSIGNMENTS LEADS to LEARNING WHICH LEADS TO good grades WHICH LEADS TO PASSING THIS CLASS!!!
