REQUIRED MATERIALS: Be prepared for every class! It is important that you arrive to each class with the following items: - workbook (cahier d’exercices) - 3-ring binder - blue/black & red pens - pencils, erasers, rulers - loose leaf paper - French/English – English/French dictionary (can be purchased from any bookstore) Each student is required to bring to every class a binder that is to be used only for French.

CLASS RULES Class will begin promptly every day at 10:45 am. When you arrive to class, sit down and ready yourself to begin working. Refrain from talking, leaving your seat, or taking washroom breaks. If these are however necessary, please ask permission beforehand. If for some legitimate reason you cannot be there at that time, then you must have an admit slip. Please knock before entering. EN FRANÇAIS! Students are expected to make a concentrated effort to speak only in French during French class. ASSIGNMENTS If an assignment is not submitted at the beginning of the period that it is due, 5% of the assignment’s total value will be deducted immediately and a subsequent 5% will be deducted for each day that it is late up to a maximum of 10%. Please refer to the second pages 19-22 of the Student Handbook. TESTS AND EVALUATIONS Students will be given different evaluations: language knowledge, oral, listening, and reading. Students will be informed ahead of time in order to study and prepare for these tests. Students are expected to be in attendance for all tests and oral presentations on the assigned date. If absent for a test, it is to be written the day of your return. Please refer to the Student Handbook (page 20) for more details. HOMEWORK: Students should expect homework for every class. Students will be given time in class to begin the homework. This allows the student to consult with the teacher regarding the assignment. If no homework is assigned, the student is expected to review material previously covered. Marks will be deducted if your work is incomplete, you are late, you have forgotten materials, you are caught with gum, or if you are out of uniform (KEEP SHIRTS TUCKED IN!). Please note that completed homework means that ALL questions have been attempted. This sends a clear message to the teacher that the student is experiencing difficulties but put for the best effort possible. Homework will be checked regularly. In the event that the student is absent from class due to illness or a school-related activity, it will be the student’s responsibility to find out what homework assignment was missed. You are expected to complete the homework for the day you return. In order to facilitate this, each student is required to have three student contacts from the class. Although student contacts are not responsible for completing the homework, they are asked to relay information as accurately and completely as possible.

If you wait too long a minor problem can become a MAJOR one, so do not hesitate to ask! PLAGIARISM Please refer to pages 31-32 & the second page 23 of the Student Handbook.
