HOW TO ORGANIZE YOUR PORTFOLIO Name:___________________________ Chemistry Period: #: Ms. Fregeau TAB #1: Label: “COURSE V.I.P.” Have each of the following very important papers in the following order: 1. How to be Successful - Course Expectations 2. THIS PAPER!!!! 3. CA Chemistry Standards Handout 4. Safety Regulations TAB #2: Label: “WARM UPS” A good pinch of notebook paper should be stored here for all warm up activities and homework assignments. This section will be graded periodically. TAB #3: Label: “LAB” This section will include all lab sheets including data and procedures. This should be kept for the SEMESTER. You will follow the format given to you by Ms. Fregeau. Labs will be collected and graded shortly after completion. TAB #4: Label: “HANDOUTS & NOTES” This section will contain all science handouts given to you in class. These include: graphs, diagrams, charts, graphic organizers, and note outlines. These can also be used on tests. Keep the WHOLE YEAR. TAB #5: Label: “HOMEWORK” This section should contain all homework stamped and not stamped. Homework stamp sheets are collected at the end of each unit on the day of the unit test. Homework should be kept for a SEMESTER. Grading Criteria: All papers should have your name, date, period and class number. It must be legible! If I cannot read your name I cannot grade it. Pen colors: blue, black, purple, and green only! All science materials should be included in the portfolio at the time of grading in some kind of order. A disorganized mess will result in a low portfolio grade. Paper is to be college-ruled, loose leaf, and kept in your portfolio. Neatness, labeled tabs, in a 1 – 2 inch binder is a must. Lab or Study Buddy: ________________________________Phone# ( ) Portfolio Check: Total 200 points DUE DATES FOR THE YEAR: st 1 Quarter nd 2 Quarter 1st Quarter Due: Oct. 28, 2003 2nd Quarter Due: 3rd Quarter Due: 4th Quarter Due: rd th 3 Quarter 4 Quarter HOMEWORK, JOURNALS, MAKE-UP & EXTRA CREDIT GUIDELINES Homework: Must be neat and legible. If I cannot read it, I cannot grade it!!! Try typing if your penmanship is less-than-legible. Must be out with stamp sheet, ready to be stamped the day that it is due. If I come around to stamp and your homework is not out, then I will not stamp it! I will not stamp it once I have reviewed the answers. Keep all homework for the unit in your portfolio until the homework stamp sheet is due on the day of the unit test. YOU MUST BE ORGANIZED! If you did not complete your homework on time and did not get a stamp, it is still worth half-credit if it is turned in complete at the time the homework stamp sheet is due. Warm - Ups: Must be neat and legible. If I cannot read it, I cannot grade it!!! Must include date, the question and the answer to receive points (stamp = 3 points). Collected each quarter for a grade. If you are absent or tardy, it is your responsibility to make up the warm-up. Warm-ups will be collected at the end of each unit for a grade. Make-Up Procedures When Absent It is YOUR responsibility to make-up any assignments that you missed while you were absent. Make-ups must be done on your time, not class time. All extra handouts from the past week are found in the Student’s Folder near the door in the classroom, organized by day. Also, check the website while you are out to keep up to date. Tests and quizzes must be made up within a week. If you have been sick or out of town for more than a week, please speak with me so we can work something out. I am available during lunch for make-ups and/or tutoring. I am also available after school by appointment. Please let me know if you need to come in. Some labs cannot be made-up. Class presentations cannot be made-up. Work missed during an unexcused absence cannot be made-up. Extra-Credit Every week you have the opportunity to tell your parents what you learned in science for extra credit. YOUR PARENTS MUST FILL OUT THE FORM (even if it is in another language). You can turn in the form every Friday for 3 extra credit points. Forms are available in the bin near the door of the classroom. Bathroom passes are also worth extra credit at the end of the semester. If you do not use them, turn them in for points (5 points each). If you do not use any of them, turn them in for double points (40 points!) Opportunities for extra credit may pop up sporadically throughout the year. Take advantage of them!! If you are failing miserably, extra credit will not help very much. It is what you do all year long that reflects your grade.
