    Music Policy:
    **Cheating of any kind is not acceptable and will be dealt with harshly.  The first offense will lead to a zero for all students involved and a warning.  Any subsequent offense will be dealt with by the office.

     

    You may never listen to music during lectures and group work.  If you are caught listening even in just one ear during those times, your head phones will be taken until the end of the period without warning.  If it becomes a habitual problem, I will keep them until the end of the day.  The only time that you may listen to music is if I have assigned individual practice problems or when there is a test or quiz.          

     

    Late/Make-up Work Policy:

    Late work may always be completed if you have an excused absence.  When you return, it is your responsibility to find out what you have missed.  Learning about and completing late work is your responsibility, not mine.  Late work must be completed before the end of the unit.  All tests and quizzes can be made up any time within the semester.  This cannot be done during class time; you may make up tests and quizzes before or after school.

     

    Assistance and Communication:

    I am in my room, 5115, before school every day and will be more than happy to help you (unless I am attending a meeting).  If you have any questions or need to collect make up work, this would be the time to do so.  If you need to come at a different time, talk to me ahead so that we can schedule a time.  If you need to contact me outside of school, my email address is Jennifer.Yaeger@sausdlearns.net.  I should usually be able to reply within twenty-four hours.  If you need additional assistance please contact me as soon as possible.  You all are capable of passing this class if you put in the effort.

     
     

    Course Description: 

    In this course, students apply knowledge gained in previous years of study to pursue a deeper understanding of the institutions of American Government. In addition, they draw on their studies of world, American history, geography, and other societies to compare differences and similarities in world governmental systems today. This course is the culmination of history/social sciences classes to prepare students to solve society’s problems, to understand and to participate in the governmental process, and to be a responsible citizen of the United States and the world.
