Homework is an extension of what we learn in class and what we will be learning..

Homework is necessary to be able to participate in classroom activities and discussions.  

You should expect to have homework Monday- Thursday night.

Daily homework will be posted on Schoology.

Long- term and team assignments will be posted on the Schoology Calendar.

Homework will either be turned in on Schoology or handed in in class.

You will start off each marking period with 25 Homework Points.  Each time you miss an assignment, you will sign the homework Log and loose 1 point.

Some homework assignments will be graded and worth more than 1 point.

If you miss a homework assignment, be sure to check the site for posted homework and turn it in one day after returning to school.


Extra Help:

I am always here to clarify content and answer any questions!  I will be available for extra help Tuesday- Thursday in the morning by appointment, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday after school.  You can also always email me with any questions or concerns @


Classroom Preparation:

You should show up to class every day with your social studies binder and any materials needed for that day.

Your binder should be divided into 3 sections, labeled as follows: 

       1.  Classwork and Notes- include looseleaf paper here

       2.  Graded Work-  anything returned to you should be kept in your binder

       3.  Current Events- keep NY Times Upfront here

*You may routinely clean out your binder at the end of each unit.  



Your grade in social studies is based on the following:

 Homework Log Grade (25 points per marking period, loss of 1 point for every missing assignment)

 Graded homework assignments (can be between 5-20 points each)

 Test and Quizzes    

 Written Assignments

 Projects (Individual and Group) * A rubric will be provided with every project we complete
