Setting up Google Classroom

  1. Using this link, go to the tab that says “Google” and log into your school issued g-mail account. The username should be the same as your computer login – the graduation year, first three letters of your first name, and your last name. Your password should be the same as well – your lunch number twice. Make sure when you type in your username, you have “” at the end.
  2. Once you have logged on correctly, click this link to Google Classroom. Click “I am a Student”.
  3. You will need to follow the instructions and join my class with your class period’s special code:  3rd period (uzfi6f), 4th period (mzffl8), 5th period (bia9osw), 6th period (ifxh2u4).
  4. when you have joined the correct class, you should see an assignment that says “Learning Style Survey”. Click it and follow the directions. Once you have completed it, submit the form and you may log off the computer.

Binder Setup

Notebook checks help us make sure students are staying on task and keeping up with their work. We will be doing notebook checks throughout the year. Here’s what your student needs:

  • 3 Ring Binder: 1 1/2″ works best.
  • 5 Dividers:
    • Tab 1: Grammar Grabber
    • Tab 2: Grammar Notes
    • Tab 3: Vocabulary
    • Tab 4: Literature
    • Tab 5: Writing

Here’s how they will be graded:

100%: Notebook is complete and has all required entries. Notebook is neat; effort in work is evident in all entries.
90%: Notebook is close to being complete, only missing 1 entry. Notebook is neat; effort in work is evident in all completed entries.
80%: Notebook is nearly complete, only missing up to 2 entries. Notebook is neat; effort in work is evident most of the time.
70%: Notebook is quite complete, may be missing up to 3 entries. Notebook is not very neat. Effort in work is evident in few entries.
60%: Notebook is not completed, missing up to 4 entries. Notebook is difficult to read due to sloppiness. Effort in work is not very evident.
50%: Notebook is very incomplete, missing more than 5 entries. Notebook is very difficult to read due to disorganization and sloppiness. Little to no color has been used, and effort in work is not at all evident.
