Homework/Individual Practice / Most weeks, you will have homework four nights a week (no homework on weekends). / If you have 8 th period available, use this time to complete assignments. / Homework is expected to be completed by the next day. I will record homework points each day based on performance and effort using a scale of 0 -1 / 1 = great effort and completion / ½ = mostly complete or complete, but little effort was given / 0 = incomplete or extreme lack of effort

Turning in Work / You will turn warm ups, quizzes, and tests into your class basket located in the back of the room. /If you finish an assignment or quiz early, please check over your work, then take out a book to read or work on another assignment. Be respectful to your classmates.
