Note-taking 

An essential skill to develop now and will be utilized all through middle school, high school, college, and in life..

  • I highly suggest writing notes for better memory retention and to avoid having the responsibility of printing up notes each time you take them. 
  • Some students still request to type the notes. I will allow however heed my warning-if you type them, you will be responsible for printing them up and having them in your binder by the start of class.  No exceptions if you do not have them. Again..they MUST be printed out and in your binder when you walk into class. 
  • If you think you will forget to do this, please hand-write the notes in the traditional way and do not type them. I can tell you that you will benefit more from hand-writing notes.
  • There is no partial credit.  You take them properly, you get a hundred. If you do not complete or do not have them printed, it is a zero:(. I hate giving zeros and I want you all to do well so please finish your notes if you do not finish them with me in class. Some students write slower than others and that is okay but please finish them. 
  • It is an easy hundred, sirs and ma'ams, so please take it seriously.  Some of you aren't the best test-takers. I wasn't either as a child.  We all can demonstrate our understanding in better ways than others.  I was great with notes and organization but not always the best high stakes test taker.  The notes are an opporunity to get hundreds in the computer to bring up some of those quizzes that you did not do so well on:).

Social Studies: 7th Grade American History I

Ms. Nikki Newton, M.Ed.

 

I. My Background 

I have been in education for over 15 years and have served in the capacity of both educator and administrator during my career.  I have taught many subject areas in both public and private schools in grade levels two through twelfth grade.

Degrees/Certifications:

  • Associate degree in Business Administration

  • Bachelor degrees in Elementary Education and Special Education

  • Masters of Education in Measurement and Evaluation

  • Highly Qualified Status in Middle School Language Arts

  • Certified Orton Gillingham Instructor

Outside of education, I actively serve as a Firefighter-Emergency Medical Technician and currently pursuing Auxiliary Police. My passion for helping others has led me to these exciting careers.  

 

II. Classroom Management: Manners, Self-Control, Respect for Authority, and Self-Discipline

  • Classroom management is essential to the success of effective instruction.  Due to my outside profession, showing empathy and respect for others while maintaining self-control and holding ourselves to a high standard is expected of me to be maintained at all times and under all conditions and I want to instill that same value in my students.  

  • Manners are important - to the growth of a child, to a respect for authority as they continue to grow, to eventually developing a good work ethic - is interrelated to the developing manners, appreciation, a passion to work hard, and hold utmost respect for those around them.  Attending a Catholic school reinforces this belief in bringing back a formality to manners and etiquette as we are reminded that this is also an expectation clearly stated in the Bible.  

  • You may have noticed your children using the phrases “yes/no ma’am/sir”, “yes please”, “no thank you”, etc. to replace common slang such as “yeah”, “uh huh”, and just a lack of acknowledging adults more formally. 

  • It is expectations such as these that remind students of a reverence for God’s law and His utmost commandment of loving our neighbors as ourselves through the display of a genuine level of respect for all those around us, especially those in authority. I hope that I can instill my convictions in them and they can then enthusiastically offer that same level of respect beyond the classroom. 

 

Classroom Rules and Expectations

I want to create a classroom that welcomes students and makes them enthusiastic learners.  I love to incorporate fun activities such as shaving cream spelling, group responses, games, play-doh, and anything fun that I see on Pinterest!  In order to have the freedom to incorporate fun, hands-on activities when possible, students’ maintaining self-control and positive behavior is essential.

 Classroom Rules

1. Bring all of your materials to class daily

2. Respect yourself and others by adhering to rules and demonstrating self-control 

3. Have a positive attitude and be willing to learn

 

Classroom Procedures

  • Entering the Classroom: Students are expected to enter the room quietly, have their homework out and ready to be checked and/or collected, and begin completion of the Do Now (this can be a journal entry, worksheet, or workbook page). If completed with the Do Now before the start of the lesson, the student is to read quietly.

  • End of Class: At the end of class, students are to remain in their seat until formally dismissed. There will be times when students will be asked to complete Exit Tickets upon which they will be handed out, completed, and submitted in the box upon exiting the classroom. 

  • Listening To/Responding To Questions: Everyone has the right to be respected when they are speaking and to ensure this, students are instructed to always raise their hand to speak and to avoid speaking when someone else is. 

  • Moving Around the Room: Unless an emergency, students are required to raise their hand and not get up from their seat without permission. Students are taught simple American Sign Language to “sign” their need as to not disturb instruction but to silently communicate to me his/her need and my response will be vocal or in sign language acknowledging and approving/disapproving the request in a non-disruptive manner.

  • Leaving the Room: Students are asked to sign out on the front board and walk quietly and orderly to their destination and back again.  They are expected to return to class without causing disruption and erase their name off the board. STUDENTS ARE TAUGHT SIMPLE ASL (AMERICAN SIGN LANGUAGE) TO COMMUNICATE THE NEED TO LEAVE THE ROOM.

  • Classroom Language: Appropriate language is always required in the classroom. They are instructed to not use negative words but speak positively about other classmates and what we are studying.

  • Walking in Halls: A respectful quiet is expected especially when going to and from mass. A reverence is to be shown for God as we enter into a holy place. Inside the church, hands are to be “quiet” as well as lips. The kneelers are to be placed gently down and lifted gently up. In the beginning of the school year, walking in the halls quietly and respectfully often times will be practiced.  

  • Preparation: Students are expected to be prepared for class with workbooks, notebooks, pencils, glue sticks, posted notes, etc. This includes having assignments handed in or completed on time.

  • Note-Taking, Journals, Completed/Submitted Assignments, Etc.: All students are expected to take notes and complete journal prompts in class.  All questions are expected to be completed through restatement of the question. Often times, some format of the RACES response will be used to respond to questions and journal prompts (Restate the question, Answer the question, Cite evidence, Explain the cited evidence in support of the answer, Sum it up - conclusion) in Language Arts and Social Studies.  Students in LA and SS will also be incorporating annotation into note-taking and developing good study habits. Binders and workbooks are checked periodically for completeness, neatness, and validity. 7th grade will be utilizing research and analysis principles, understand how to utilize primary and secondary sources, and properly cite and reference sources. 

       *STUDENTS ARE ONLY ALLOWED TO WRITE IN ERASABLE PEN OR PENCILS - NO EXCEPTIONS. 

  • Grading: Students will be graded on text comprehension, written response summaries, vocabulary, research and project assignments, online work submission if assigned, “Social Studies Station” work, CNN10 responses, group work, classroom activities, homework (completion only, not correctness), articles with Cornell note-taking, and notebook/journal checks. 

  • CHROMEBOOKS: Students will need earbuds for class. STUDENTS ARE NOT ALLOWED TO PLAY GAMES ON THE CHROMEBOOKS AT ALL IN MY CLASSES. Students have asked to play games upon the completion of work. This backfires as students then rush through work to play games.  Unfortunately in this day and age, students often play enough games on electronics in the home setting, including my own children, so this is not allowed at all in my classroom.

 

Homework

I am a strong believer in making my time with students in the classroom as effective as possible reducing the need for extensive homework on a daily basis. Homework will be given for reinforcement of skills to ensure it is meaningful but reasonably limited.  

 

Homework Expectations

Homework to be submitted by the following class  – extenuating circumstances can be discussed through parent-teacher communication.  Email is best as sometimes hand-written notes do not make their way to me.

If a student is absent, it is their responsibility to make up work. In this modern time, all students have access to technology and can use that knowledge to contact another classmate to ask about the missed assignment or email me as well.  Extra copies of handouts are also kept in the colored magnet pockets on the board for each class.

●As necessary, extra homework may be assigned when activities are not completed in class due to classroom behavior.  Individual students may also receive additional homework when classroom assignments have not been completed and are as a result expected to be completed at home in addition to the daily assigned homework.

 

Homework should ALWAYS be copied in a planner.  Do not rely on technology.

Assignments are always due on the deadline given.

 

Additional Information

All of Ms. Newton’s classes need the following supplies: Large Binder, Binder Dividers, Binder paper hole punch (Staples, Dollar Tree, etc.), Pencils/Erasable Pens, Highlighter, Colored Pencils, Scissors, Tape, Glue, Expo Markers, Folder, Index Cards, Earbuds for Chromebooks.

ORGANIZATION IS KEY IN MY CLASSROOM AND IN LIFE!

Read the following information on Developing Good Organizational Habits by Oxford Learning:

 

HOW TO BE MORE ORGANIZED IN MIDDLE SCHOOL (FOR STUDENTS & PARENTS)

Middle school is an important transition to high school. In middle school, students develop organization and study habits that will follow them throughout their lives. Better organized students tend to do better in school, but not many schools teach organizational skills for middle school students. Middle schoolers need to develop good habits so that they’re set up for success.

THESE TIPS WILL HELP TEACH YOUR CHILD HOW TO BE MORE ORGANIZED IN MIDDLE SCHOOL.

ORGANIZATION STARTS WITH THE RIGHT SUPPLIES

Being organized starts with having the right tools. Before you go shopping, figure out what supplies your child will need. Unnecessary school supplies can make students more disorganized, so it’s important to limit purchases to the necessities.

A. BUY THE ESSENTIALS

Even if the school year is part way over, it’s never too late to get your student organized. Find out what your child needs and create a supply list. Create your list based on teachers’ supply lists, if they have them. They will have the best knowledge of what is required for their courses. Below are some of the supplies your child should always have on hand. Assure that your child has the correct supplies by the beginning of the school year and due dates given.  Most schools have supply lists listed online, on paperwork that is sent home, and most teachers have homework websites that list their class supplies as well.

PRO ORGANIZATION TIP:

Buy high quality and functional supplies. Binders that are falling apart will only lead to more disorganization. Sturdier products will be able to handle the abuse that middle schoolers put them through.  This saves the need to buy more supplies during the school year.

B. CONSIDER TECHNOLOGY

Digital devices can make excellent organizational tools. They can store assignments and notes, connect students to additional resources, and help solve the problem of lost notes and assignments. These devices can also be used for research and time tracking. You can create restrictions on most of these devices to ensure that your child isn’t distracted by social media or other apps.

MIDDLE SCHOOL ORGANIZATION TIPS

Once your child has the right supplies, he or she needs to have systems in place to stay organized. Use the following tips to learn how to build organization habits.

 

TIP 1: MANAGE TIME EFFECTIVELY

If work and studying are not planned in advance, it’s easy to underestimate how much time a task requires, and the to-do list can pile up. An agenda, calendar, or both help plan out time so that it’s clear when assignments are due, when tests are, and when your child will work on certain things.

  • CREATE A WEEKLY SCHEDULE

Make note of the assignment on the day it was assigned, and the day it’s due in your schedule. Have your child look ahead to see when assignments are due, and plan out when he or she will work on each. Every day an assignment remains incomplete, write it down again so that it is clear what needs to be done that day.  When an assignment is finished, make a note and stop writing it on the calendar. This method helps create a daily checklist for middle school students.

  • B. CREATE A DAILY SCHEDULE

If the days just don’t seem long enough, plan how each hour will be spent. Consider using a Master Schedule. For example, if your child doesn’t have time for homework, he or she should write down when they will work on each subject (ex. “Math homework 4 – 5:30, Break 5:30 – 5:45, Science homework 5:45 – 6:30”). Account for any breaks and leisure time in the plan, but make sure they are not preventing homework completion.

 

TIP 2: ORGANIZE ALL OF YOUR SCHOOL ENVIRONMENTS

Keep workstations, lockers, and backpacks organized, and clean them regularly. This will make turning disorganization into organization easy.

  • MIDDLE SCHOOL LOCKER ORGANIZATION

Use a locker organizer to divide a locker into different sections. That way, materials can be separated by subject, day of the week, or whatever makes the most sense. This is especially important if he or she only brings home the books needed each night.  A small whiteboard inside the locker can improve organization. Use it to keep track of homework and assignments so and stay on top of what needs to be brought home each night.

  • BINDER ORGANIZATION FOR MIDDLE SCHOOL

Keep all materials in a single place. It could be a large binder, an accordion-style folder, or a clearly labelled binder for each subject. This will prevent things from being left behind when they are needed.

 

TIP 3: BE PREPARED WITH THE RIGHT MATERIALS

Disorganization can be caused by having to transport materials between school and home. If supplies are limited, your child can be left without the proper resources when he or she needs them. Use the following tips to reduce the likelihood of losing or forgetting supplies.

  • HAVE A PLACE FOR EVERYTHING

Whether at school, at home, or on the go, make sure that everything is in its proper place. Items are much less likely to get lost if they are always kept in the same spots. This means putting all worksheets in the right folders, and always keeping pens in the same pocket of a backpack.

  • HAVE BACKUP SUPPLIES

Keep extra supplies such as writing instruments and paper at a workstation at home. You can even keep copies of books at home. Teachers are often happy to provide extra books if asked. This may be in the form of an electronic access code if there are not enough physical copies.

 

TIP 4: CREATE A HOMEWORK SYSTEM

Has your child ever claimed not to have homework, and then you find out later that he or she did? If students don’t have a system to keep track of homework, it’s easy to forget about assignments.

  • CHECK WITH THE TEACHER

Teachers will all have different methods of reminding students of assignments. Some write them on the board, others have assignment books. Have your child check these at the end of each day so it’s clear what materials he or she will need to take home.

  • KEEP TABS ON HOMEWORK PROGRESS

Have your child use coloured Post-it notes to keep track of what assignment is finished, and what still needs to be completed. Make sure the completed assignment makes it back into the binder when it’s complete! After homework has been submitted, make a note in an agenda or calendar.

 

MIDDLE SCHOOL ORGANIZATION TIPS FOR PARENTS FOR THE HOME SETTING

If you want an organized child, you need to be organized! Make getting organized a group effort. Once your child is used to the routine, he or she will be self-reliant. Remember, the habits students form in middle school will be carried forward, so creating good ones early on is important!

  • Encourage Positive Routine

Once something becomes a habit, it will be automatic for students. Help your child learn the strategies above to set him or her up for success. Suggest secure places to keep supplies, and create a sample daily planner. Don’t force your child into a routine that doesn’t work for him or her. The most important part is that he or she has a system to consistently follow.

  • Keep Track of Important Dates

Mark important dates such as tests and assignment due dates on your calendar (separate from your child’s agenda or calendar) and make sure your child is prepared for them. You may be able to check assignments on the school’s website to ensure your child knows what he or she has to do.

  • Seek Extra Help

If a child is still having trouble staying organized after trying the above steps, seek extra help. Teachers may be able to offer personalized help after school. Chances are, if a student is unorganized, the teacher is looking for a solution as well. Tutors are also great options. Tutors can help teach study and homework skills, and this is extremely common.

GET ORGANIZED AND GET LEARNING

With the right supplies, the right systems, and your support, your child will be better able to stay organized. Try out some of the above methods and make sure he or she has a successful, and stress-free middle school experience!  If your child needs extra help getting organized, check out online Study Skills programs, which will help him or her learn time management, note taking skills, and more.
