About Me

I am a veteran of the U.S. Army with 10 years of service. I have been in the Clarksville area since 2001 but lived a short time in Anchorage, Alaska from 2010-2012. I hold a Master of Arts in Teaching from Austin Peay State University and am currently teaching World History/Geography and U.S. History. I am the lead teacher for the Computer and Game Programming Academy and teach the social studies curriculum for the academy. I am looking forward to a positive and productive year with the great students at NEHS.


US History and Geography

2016-17

Course Syllabus



Welcome to Mrs. Outlaw’s US History and Geography! The standards, objectives, and curriculum have been specifically designed to challenge students as they learn about the world around them. During this school year, our class will be covering 9 units and over 100 standards. A comprehensive description of the curriculum can be found on the school system website: www.cmcss.net.

Classroom Rules

During the first week of school, students will propose guidelines, and as a class we will vote on a set of classroom rules. The rules will be posted in the classroom for reminders throughout the year. Students that do not adhere to the classroom and school rules will receive the following consequences:

1st offense: Warning

2nd offense: Parent contact

3rd offense: Write-up/Referral



Classroom Procedures

We will begin each lesson with housekeeping and a Bell Ringer question. You are responsible for sharpening pencils, retrieving composition books and accomplishing other personal tasks before class begins. You are expected to be respectful, on time and prepared each day. Do not pack up belongings until instructed to do so and NEVER line up at the door, we teach bell-to-bell. If you miss a day of class you are responsible for checking Google Classroom for your notes and missed assignment.



Grading

I use the point system so my grades are NOT weighted. I do allow two make-up assignments per nine weeks. If a student is missing more than two assignments they will have to come after school during my tutoring hours to complete the remaining assignments. Per school policy parents will be notified before the end of each nine weeks if their child is in danger of failing. The grading scale is as follows:

93-100 A 70-74 D

85-92 B 69 and below F

75-84 C

Classroom supplies

Pencil

Composition Notebook

Spiral notebook/lined paper

Colored pencils

Markers



I am looking forward to a wonderful, productive year filled with successful learners. I use Google Classroom to inform students of assignments, powerpoints, websites and videos used in class. Please feel free to contact me at Stefi.outlaw@cmcss.net or (931) 648-5640 if you have any questions or concerns.



I have read the syllabus and agree to its terms.
