Expectations of Students:

class time will be made up on student's time (after school or during lunch). After two late
entries, a referral will be written.
2. Be respectful of yourself and of others.
3. Lavatory passes will be given for emergencies, so use your time wisely between classes.
4. Homework is to be completed on time. Late work will result in a lower grade.
5. When you are absent, you need to see me the day you return. This way you can catch up on
your missed assignments and tests. (The more you miss, the harder it is to catch up).

If you know you will be absent for a number of days, please have parent/guardian
contact your counselor or me (through email) so work can be collected for you, or sent
to you via email.
6. If you need help after school, please let me know before the end of the day. I will be happy to
stay with you, unless I have a scheduled appointment or meeting.
7.
Tests must be made up within 5 days of your return from an absence.
Unexcused
(skipping of class) absences for tests/quizzes/presentations will result in a ZERO (O).
8. When you have completed your homework assignments in class, it is expected that you find
something quiet to work on. (Homework, late assignments, ECT.)
HOMEWORK POLICY:
1.
Homework is assigned every night. Students are required to turn homework in the day after
they receive the assignment.
HOMEWORK INCLUDES:
a) Studying of Class Notes There will be quizzes given based on this assignment, as a way to
monitor students’ studying habits.

Global II is a great course, but it is filled with a great deal of information. If we
work together to achieve our goals and meet our expectations, this year should run
very smoothly. Please feel free to contact me at anytime: (email is the quickest
way). [email protected]
Students will take the New York State Regents Exam in June, which will consist of
both Global I and Global II material. It is important that students are preparing
outside of class as much as they are inside class.
Thank you,

Global II Film Permission Slip:
Throughout the course Global II, we will be watching parts of or whole films; some of them are
rated R due to violence of war and/or historical situations and/or powerful language use.
While some of the violence may be graphic and some of the language is of a more adult nature,
the relevance of these films to the study of history makes them valuable despite their R ratings.
Examples of the films that may be shown are Saving Private Ryan, Gandhi, and Hotel
Rwanda.
Your signature on this form shows your consent of your son or daughter viewing these films.
Thank you,
Ms. Carroll-Edwards
