Every student is different, but we are like a family. We learn from each other, so we need to listen carefully. We don’t talk when others are talking, and we use kind words when we do talkl. We do not laugh at each other, but we do have fun and work hard together. We are like a soccer team; we help each other so that we win! If you do not act like a good team player, you will have to leave the room.
is called Stand Out: Student Book 1 (2002). The authors are Stacy Lyn SABBAGH and Rob
JENKINS (Heinle and Heinle,
The bookstore at BCC sells the book. This quarter, the bookstore is in D-104.
We use the book in class and for practice at home, so you need to buy your own.
I give many papers for homework and for practice in class. You need a notebook or a folder to store your handouts and classwork. Come prepared to class with completed homework, your notebook, pens, pencils and paper.
If you bring a cell phone to class, please turn it off or turn the volume down. It is not polite to talk on the phone during class. If there is an emergency, be quiet and go outside to talk.
Some important papers stay in your folder all the time. Do not adjust the bracket in your folder. When I ask you to turn homework in, put it in your folder.
Circle your attendance each day. Write one sentence about our work or what you learned. For example: Today we played a game in groups.
You must practice at home if you want to speak English. Do your homework and put it in your folder. I will write on it:
4 or + Excellent. No mistakes.
3 or ü+ Good. 1 or 2 mistakes.
2 or ü Okay. Practice more.
1 or ü- Too many mistakes! You need to work harder.
After I mark your paper and put it in your folder, take it out and put it in your notebook.
You need to make progress to stay in class. Progress means that your English is better; you can speak more, understand more or write more English. To make progress:
1. Come to class.
2. Listen to the teacher. Listen to other students.
3. Do your work in class. Work with your group. Talk with your partner.
4. Take the tests in class.
5. Do your homework.
6. Speak English when you are not at school.
You can stay at this level for 3 quarters. No progress = No class next quarter. Tell me if you have a problem.
Be on time. Come to every class. If you miss 3 days, you cannot come back to class next quarter. Not in class 3 days = no class next quarter
When there is an emergency and you cannot come to class, call me at 206.841.8148. If you cannot come to class anymore, tell me; it is very important!
