What is a Section Summary?? For every chapter/unit we cover this year there will be an assigned reading and section summary from the text book. The section summary is a specific part of the assigned reading. Re-read that specific section and then you must write a 30 word summaryof the section. It must be 30 words or less! After you write the section summary, count your words and write the total at the end. Your section summaries will be completed in your composition book (same place Bellwork goes). You do not have to start a new page (unless you want to), just label it "Section Summary _________ __________" (fill in the topic, for example "Designing an Experiment").
If you bring a cell phone to class it MUST be placed in "Phone Jail". Phone Jail is a plastic box, with lid, at your table. Phones remain in 'phone jail' the entire class period. If you remove your phone from phone jail, your phone will be held by the teacher and you will receive an after school detention.
With that said, there are many times in class when we do use our cell phones. When instructed, students can open the phone jail to use their phones. Examples of this are class games, research, activities that require a cell phone, etc. But as soon as the activity is over, phones must be returned to 'phone jail'. If you are not comfortable placing your phone in the plastic container--don't bring a phone to class. We have tablets available for you so you can still participate in the activities that require a phone.
