PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This product was updated on 7/24/16 and is a course syllabus/classroom expectation page that I place on students' desks before they enter the room on the first day of school. This has been effectively used for 6th, 7th, and 8th grade students.

Although there are a lot of multiple page long course document sheets available for purchase, the reality is that they are not written on a student or parent friendly-level. Thus, when you attend meetings to address your expectations, students and parents alike often state that they do not understand the wordiness of those multi-page documents. In addition, most parents are overwhelmed trying to read through multi-page documents from six or seven different teachers the first week of school and ignore the important aspects of your personal expectations.

There are now TWO versions--both print beautifully in black and white: Please make sure you have both of the required programs, Microsoft Word and PowerPoint to use each version.

Version 1: Editable in Microsoft Word--Traditional without clipart.
This one page front side only sheet has received praise from both students and parents, is FULLY EDITABLE, and covers the following topics:
Your Name's 2016-2017 Classroom Expectations, Your Course Name, Your E-mail, Your Phone Number, Your Website, Course Description, Required Materials, Grading, Grading Scale, Homework Policies, Make-Up Work, Help Sessions, Citizenship Expectations, Classroom Procedures, Remind
Parent/Student Signatures with Date (for accountability purposes)

Version 2: Editable in PowerPoint--Visually appealing with clipart.
This one page front and back side sheet along with student accountability piece (2 pages--the front and back syllabus and the student accountability piece) is BRAND NEW and was just uploaded on 7/24/2016 and covers the following topics:

Course Name, Your Name 2016-2017, Your Website, Methods of Contact Including 1) E-Mail and 2) Telephone, Course Description, Course Materials, Grading, Grading Scale, Homework Policies, Make-Up Work, Citizenship Expectations, Sign-Up for Remind AND Student Expectations written as I will statements along with Parent and Student Signatures with Date (for accountability purposes).

What's Editable? Due to the clip artists used you CANNOT drag/move clipart or borders, they are locked to respect the work of the artists.
YOU CAN: Edit the headings as well as the entire text for each field. There are additional pages included if you do not like the bumble bee clipart (the graphic selected has a purpose for the student expectations).

How do you edit this? Just highlight each field, then type your information over mine. Delete any extra text boxes that you do not want or need, it's that simple!

You may be asking...
If your previous document worked so well, why the change?
As we are becoming a more visual society, I find myself explaining more concepts to students in ways they and their parents can visualize. If you liked my old syllabus style--keep using it! If you want to use the new style--go for it! They will both work effectively.

After 10 years of teaching, I sat throughout most of June and July and reflected on what I needed for the upcoming school year. This included a separate student expectations accountability piece with student intials written as "I will"... statements as well as the student's and parent's signatures to make sure new teachers and veterans alike place the responsibility of learning back on the student and not on themselves. The student expectations accountability piece is 100% editable, use my wording or create your own!

Feel free to e-mail me at iluv2educate@gmail.com if you have any questions on the topics listed. :)
