Grade 8 Expectations

Expectations for Français 8

 Madame Cambrola 2019-2020

Bienvenue à la classe de français!  I am looking forward to an exciting and challenging year with you.  This year we will be continuing to work  on developing the four skills of speaking, listening, reading, and writing.  By learning French you will be able to get to know and communicate with people who use French every day.  You will also develop a better understanding of how your own language works, and by exploring cultural similarities and differences you will learn to better appreciate your own culture and value other cultures.


Classroom Expectations

·         Respectful and courteous behavior is expected at all times

·         Be in your seat with your binder, pen/pencil, and homework before the bell rings

·         Follow directions the first time they are given

·         Raise your hand and wait to be called on before answering


Homework Policy

Homework is a valuable tool in helping students become successful academically.  I assign homework because it reinforces what has been learned in class, prepares students for what will be taught in upcoming lessons, teaches responsibility, and helps students develop positive study habits.  Homework will be assigned on a regular basis and assignments should take no longer than thirty minutes to complete, excluding project work or studying for quizzes and tests.  Students should ideally spend five to ten minutes each evening reviewing new vocabulary or verb conjugations. 

Students are responsible for copying down homework from the homework board each day.   All assignments must be completed and turned in when due.  Homework not turned in when it is due will receive a “0”.  Students are responsible for making up homework assignments when they are absent.  Assignments should be made up according to handbook policies.

Please make homework a top priority.  Encourage your child to ask questions in class to clarify an assignment.  This should eliminate any confusion at home.  Please provide a quiet environment for doing homework.  Establish mandatory homework time.  Praise and support your child!  And please contact me if you have any questions or if there is a problem.  My e-mail address is: jmcambrola@ashland.k12.ma.us.  Thank you!
