Welcome to 6B Social Studies with Mr. Robinson!
I am truly excited to be working with your child this year! Sixth grade is the time when your child learns independence and responsibility. Please understand that parent-teacher communication will continue to be a major part of your child’s education. Please feel free to contact me regarding any questions or concerns that you may have throughout the school year. I am here to help. It is always best to keep the lines of communication open. You can reach me by phone at 440-285-4062 or through email at firstname.lastname@example.org.

- 20% of your grade will be based on Formative Assessments. These are assessments for learning that gives feedback and information during the instructional process. Types of formative assessments include in-class practice, homework, quizzes, entrance and exit tickets, observations, and questioning.
- 80% of your will be based on Summative Assessments. These are assessments of learning that are used to determine if the students have met the learning targets. They are cumulative in nature and occur after instruction. Types of summative assessments include tests, presentations, essays, common assessments, research, projects, and performances.
- The purpose of homework is to practice skills and prepare for class. Homework will be assigned as needed. All homework will be posted on the board and www.cmsteam6b.weebly.com. You are expected to record all work in assignment notebook.
- Homework needs to be with you and completed before class on the due date for full credit.
- You will also see homework for my class within your google classroom site.

Late Assignments and Missing Work
- All late and missing assignments are required to be completed.
- Assignments will be accepted until the summative assessment is given.
- Because most assignments are discussed in class, three missing assignments will result in a strike.
- If you are absent, it is your responsibility to get missed work. You are expected to check the team website at www.cmsteam6b.weebly.com or your google classroom site for what you missed and any assigned work. When you return, check the daily folders for missed work before you see me.
- If you are absent on a day that an assignment is due, it is expected the day you return.
- You will be given the same amount of days you were absent to make up short-term work assigned while out.
- Absence is not an acceptable excuse for late long-term assignments. They will be due on pre-set date.
- Cheating, copying, and plagiarizing will not be tolerated. If a student is caught, he/she will receive a zero for the work, an office referral, and parents will be contacted.
- Team 6B Behavioral Plan will be followed.
- You will receive a warning before a recorded strike.
- When strikes are accumulated, action will be taken following the set team consequences.
- Detentions will be given as needed as outlined in the Chardon Middle School Handbook. Mr. Robinson and the team will assign lunch or after school detentions/work sessions if deemed necessary.
- Good behavior will get positive rewards! If you do your best, it will pay off.
- Please check assignment notebook daily and the team website at www.cmsteam6b.weebly.com. I will post homework and links to class assignments.
- Check online grade book weekly.
- Promote good study habits.
- Look over both graded and un-graded assignments with your student.
- Support academic and disciplinary efforts of teacher.
