OnLINE TEXTBOOK ACCESS
Students will be able to access their Social Studies textbook (for both 6th AND 7th grade) online at http://my.hrw.com. Their Username is their student email address and their Password is their initials (both lower case) and date of birth (MMDDYY format). Example: John Smith's birthday is July 4, 2001, so his password would be js070401. Students will find a wealth of wonderful resources here that go well beyond the basic textbook and are encouraged to utilize them.
Homework is worth 10% of each student's quarterly grade. All assigned work is due at the beginning of class on the specified due date. Work turned in after the due date will be considered late, but will still be accepted for credit up until the final unit assessment at which time work for that unit will no longer be accepted. Students are strongly encouraged to write down assignments, as well as quiz, test, and project due dates, which are posted on the board in my classroom daily, as well as in Google Classroom, in their assignment notebook (agenda).
Be sure to check your student's grade in Power School regularly (once per week is recommended). You can even set up your account so that grades are emailed directly to you as often as you like! If you have any concerns regarding your student's grade at any time, please do not hesitate to contact me at email@example.com.
