Drama 1

HELPFUL INFORMATION for 7th GRADERS:

NAMES: Be sure to put your LAST name on all papers that you turn in. There MANY different people with similar names in Jr. High, and many kids in the Drama room every day. Help me to know whose paper it is.
 
GRADES: If a score shows as a BLANK on the computer, that means it has not been counted in your grade. We use blanks to show assignments that are either excused or not entered yet. A BLANK does not affect your grade.
 
If you see the word "Missing" or the letter "M" this means that I don't have your assignment. 
CHECK the NO-NAME box! Come talk to me if you think you turned it in and we can figure out where it went.



All students will need to bring a notebook specifically for this class every day. This does not need to be a large notebook;
 a 1 subject book, or a section of paper in a binder will be fine.

Drama 1 is taught 1st, 2nd & 7th Periods.

All Drama 1 classes will be working on the same units of study.
