Course Expectations for 2016-2017
The following requirements are written on the back of each student‚Äôs lock card. The first week of class each student is given a lock card and lock and must sign the back of the card.
Physical Education Requirements
New York State requires all students to be enrolled in Physical Education during each semester of attendance in grades 9-12. Two credits must be earned during a student's four years of high school. Auburn High School Physical Education is offered on a semester basis. A student earns 1/4 credit for each successful completion of a semester of Physical Education. The Auburn attendance policy for Physical Education allows for no more than 11 absences for non-attendance or for being unprepared for class in each semester to earn PE credit. All makeups for PE must be completed before the end of January for first semester to earn PE credit and the end of June for the second semester credit. Failure of the first semester could result in doubling up PE either in the second semester or during the next school year. Senior who fail the first semester are jeopardizing graduation. A student will receive a 50 for the marking period if s/he has had 4 or more absences/unprepareds. A student will not receive credit for the course if s/he has had 12 or more absences/unprepareds for the semester.
Percentages for Grading-Final Grade
Each unit will finish with a final written test on-line. Students who do not have a Moodle Account need to see Mrs. O'Neil in the 3rd floor computer lab. Review sheets can be found on my website. Each marking period will have an out of class assignment. Each semester students will have one homework assignment due. Homework can be found on the navigation sidebar to the left.
Rubric for Participation-40%
Rubric for Personal and Social Responsibility-20%
Students are encourage to make up any time that is missed. Students are graded each day on their participatioin and if they are not present they can not receive the grade.
Students are also graded on Levels of Personal and Social Responsibility (NYSS #2). These five levels define what responsibility means and what they are able to take responsibility for. The levels are explained below 5-0. Students are graded appropriately everyday.
Level 5: Caring
Students at level 5 in addition to respecting others, participating and being self-directed are motivated to extend their sense of responsibility beyond themselves by cooperating, giving support, showing concern and helping.
Level 4: Self-Direction
Students at level 4 not only show respect and participation they are also able to work without direct supervision. They can identify their own needs and begin to plan and carry out their physical education programs.
Level 3: Participation
Students at level 3 show at least minimal respect for others but also willingly play, accept challenges, practice motor skills, and train for fitness under the teacher‚Äôs supervision.
Level 2: Respect
Students at level 2 may not participate in a day‚Äôs activities or show much mastery or improvement, but they are able to control their behavior enough so that they don‚Äôt interfere with other students‚Äô right to learn or the teacher‚Äôs right to teach. They do this without much prompting by the teacher and without constant supervision.
Level 1: Irresponsibility
Students who operate at level 1 make excuses for their behavior and deny personal responsibility for what they do or fail to do.
