Class Objective- The purpose of the class is to teach effective study techniques and strategies that will help the students meet the requirements and responsibilities in their regular classes.

Class Grades- The bulk of the class grade will be determined by class participation. However, there will be units of study such as learning styles, goal setting, study strategies, test-taking strategies, etc. that are important to student success in the classroom.

1/3 quarter grades will be worth 40%

 2/4 quarter grades will be worth 40%.

 Final Exam worth 20%.

Supplies- 1’ Binder w/ paper inside / Daily Planner (given at school)

Attendance- Attendance is extremely important for academic success. I will be following the MPS policies regarding absences and tardies. If a student is late more than ten minutes to class, they will be marked absent. After 10 absences, whether they are excused or unexcused, students may no longer receive credit for the course.
