Participation and engagement with daily activities is essential for content acquisition. It is my expectation that all students participate in an active manner whether we are working in groups or in whole class activities. I am not the teacher who will only call on students who raise their hand. If you are in my class you can expect to be called on.
All science students need to have a signed copy of the laboratory safety contract on file with Mr. LaLonde prior to being allowed to participate in laboratory exercises. This is to help ensure all student's safety during all labs. This document will be sent home with all science students during the first week of school.
In my class we will respect everyone's feelings, property, and ideas. We will create an environment where all students feel comfortable talking and participating every day.
