Rule of 12x12x12 / Multiple Intelligence's

12 by 12 by 12 is the distance you are being judged by the people you meet every day of every week of every year of your life.

Your first impression starts 12 feet away. This is the distance people see what you are wearing and how you are acting. This is the first chance you have to make sure that people see you in a positive, accepting light.

At 12 inches away you are now about to speak. People will notice the minute details of the way your face looks as you smile, frown, or grimace. People are judging your looks, your demeanor, and the way you carry yourself. The way you shake a hand, smell to others, and present yourself are now under the microscope and you should be aware that what you are about to say will forever place a note in people’s head about your level of maturity.

Finally, the first 12 words you speak are a reflection of your heritage, upbringing, and education level. Whether you like it or not, the person you are interacting with is taking a mental picture of you for future reference. What kind of picture have you given them? How can you make a difference in how you appear?

The mark we leave on the world is a made up of the thousands of appearances in other people’s memories. How you are perceived by others is the only yardstick we are all measured equally by. Make your impression a positive lasting one with others, and you will make your world a better place live in.

How Do You Learn Best? Learning Syle / L&R Brain Survey / Executive Functions / Typing Test

Today you will learn about HOW YOU LEARN BEST! Please follow the directions below to complete a series of survey's that will give you some insight on your Learning Styles, your Left/Right Brain Dominance, and your Executive Functions. You may choose to watch the videos associated with each survey (with headphones only), or just complete the surveys themselves. Please fill out the form in class, and complete the ONLINE SURVEY at the end. Make sure to complete both for credit.  See you tomorrow!

- Mr. S

1. LEARNING STYLES: Many people recognize that each person prefers different learning styles and techniques. Learning styles group common ways that people learn. Everyone has a mix of learning styles. Some people may find that they have a dominant style of learning, with far less use of the other styles. Others may find that they use different styles in different circumstances. There is no right mix. Nor are your styles fixed. You can develop ability in less dominant styles, as well as further develop styles that you already use well.
Please watch the Video (Click Here) and take the Inventory below.  Record you answers on the form and then enter them in the ONLINE SURVEY for credit.

Learning Style Inventory

2. LEFT/RIGHT BRAIN DOMINANCE: According to the theory of left-brain or right-brain dominance, each side of the brain controls different types of thinking. Additionally, people are said to prefer one type of thinking over the other. For example, a person who is "left-brained" is often said to be more logical, analytical, and objective. Watch the video below and take the survey. Record your answers on the paper and then enter them on the ONLINE SURVEY for credit
Watch the Video Here (Click)

Please take the following surveys that will help you to identify your learning style and whether you are left or right brain dominant:


3. EXECUTIVE FUNCTIONS: The Executive Functions are a set of processes that all have to do with managing oneself and one's resources in order to achieve a goal. It is an umbrella term for the neurologically-based skills involving mental control and self-regulation.

TAKE THE SURVEY:  Executive Functions Survey (Click Here to Take The Survey)

4. TYPING TEST: When you are finished take the typing test (1 minute, any topic you like, and record your Words Per Minute):


When complete, you must also click the Student Survey Form Below and enter your results. Begin working on improving your typing skills right away!


OBJECTIVE & STUDENT OUTCOMES
  Students will be able to identify their individual Learning Style, Left or Right Brain Dominance, Executive Functions, and be tested on their basic typing skills.  Students will complete the Self-Assessments for each activity and record scores on the EXIT TICKET.  Students will also transfer those scores to the online Google Form to add them to the school spreadsheet for credit.  When complete, students will use spare time to improve individual typing skills.

STUDENTS MUST READ ALL DIRECTIONS ON THIS WEBSITE PRIOR TO STARTING ANY ASSIGNED TASKS.  PLEASE FOLLOW ALL DIRECTIONS AS GIVEN FOR FULL CREDIT!

Students will enter the class quietly and quickly.  Students will be given specific directions and examples of why the information may be valuable to know about Learning Styles, L/R Brain Dominance, Executive Functions, and Typing Speed.  Students will complete all assessments and be able to accurately record scores.  Students will use time wisely and spend any additional time in class, or at home, finishing projects currently due.

- Mr. S

Computer Skills & Applications 2017-2018

The information provided below is posted on a public website and scholars are assumed to have read, understand, and follow all protocol and rules listed. Scholars will be bound by these rules and regulations upon entering Collegium Charter School and cannot claim ignorance of the rules as a defense for poor behavior or poor preparation. Any questions or concerns may be directed to me at hscribner@ccs.us. Parents/Guardians are encouraged to review these rules and procedures in full with every Collegium Scholar. Technology equipment, network access, and internet access are for official student use only, and may only be used to access appropriate content as outlined in the Collegium Charter School Policies and Procedures.
 
MR. SCRIBNER’S CLASSROOM RULES

1. Scholars are to enter the classroom calmly and quietly and go immediately to their assigned seats. You are to sit at a 90-degree angle to your desk with your feet on the floor and good posture (spine straight).

2. Scholars are to be in their seats and prepared to work at the beginning of the period. If you are not in your seat with your materials at the beginning of the period you are tardy. Be working on the assignment on the board/website immediately upon entering.

3. Scholars are to show respect at all times and in all manners toward themselves, others, and staff. This includes all verbal and non-verbal forms of communication including body language, facial expression and tone of voice.

4. Scholars are to be on task AT ALL TIMES and work to the best of their ability. This means you are to be working on whatever assignment is given with all of your concentration. If you are finished with an assignment early, you may read or sit quietly and wait for others. Please collaborate and communicate about the topic-at-hand and limit your off-topic conversations while working.

5. There is absolutely no gum, food, drink, candy, make-up, mirrors, electronic devices or any other distraction allowed in my class. Any of these visible will be immediately confiscated and picked up after school. Class time is for learning.

6. Scholars are to be prepared with all papers, pens, pencils, notebooks and any other materials required for class. Do not waste class time to ask to sharpen your pencil, needing paper, throwing out trash, or any other trivial matter. Be a professional student and take care of it quietly or prior to class.

7. You are to raise your hand to get permission to speak during direct instruction time. Raising your hand does not give you permission to speak; it just lets me know you want to speak. You are never to leave your seat without first raising your hand and receiving permission. This requirement is adjusted during group/team or independent work time.

8. I do not argue with Scholars. If you are told to move your seat or given any other direction you are to do so immediately and without complaint. If you feel this or any other direction is unreasonable you may arrange to discuss it with me, your counselor or arrange a parent conference on your own time. Otherwise, follow all directions immediately and without complaining. Class time is for learning.

9. You are to remain in your seat until dismissed by Mr. Scribner (or designated substitute). You are responsible to clean any trash in your area whether it is yours or not. Keep all trash with you until the bell rings and throw it out on your way out of the classroom.

10. I do not give warnings. This is your warning. Any violation of these rules will be met immediately with a 10-minute detention to be served after school and/or other consequences such as copying the rules, parent conference, or meeting with the principal.

12. If you do not come to the 10-minute detention, you will then be required to attend a full 45-minute detention and your parent/guardian will be notified of the issue. Consecutive missed detentions will result in further disciplinary action. No matter what other consequence you receive, you will have to make up the 10-minute detention.

Classroom Information and Procedures

Respect Yourself – Respect Others AT ALL TIMES


Be Prepared with Materials – Be on Time – Be Ready to Learn

Scholars are expected to have achieved a certain level of appropriate behavior given the number of years they have been exposed to classroom rules and procedures. Expected behaviors include but are not limited to showing respect, following instructions, participating in learning, abiding by school policies and classroom procedures. Failure to demonstrate these expected behaviors daily will trigger consequences according to the classroom, school, and district discipline police. THERE WILL BE NO WARNINGS ISSUED!

Beginning and Ending Class – Scholars should be in their seats with materials ready at the start of class. Scholars should respond to the Teacher's queue by listening or engaging in warm up activity (Journal). Scholars should respond to the Teachers queue to end class by saving files, putting up materials, turning in papers, getting the homework assignment, logging off the computer, and being ready to leave class when the bell rings. Scholars should use all allotted class time for learning by being engaged in listening, responding appropriately, or participating in assignments. Beginning and ending class in an efficient manner will allow for class time to be used appropriately.

Bathroom Breaks – Bathroom breaks should be taken during passing period. Scholars should get permission from the teacher and sign out before leaving the classroom for a bathroom break. If you are anywhere else other then the restroom or getting water disciplinary actions will be taken.

Educational Use of Equipment – Computer systems are provided for use by faculty and Scholars for educational purposes only. Games played on the computer for entertainment are not allowed unless specific permission is given. Internet surfing not directly associated with classroom assignments is not allowed. These limitations are in place to make better use of the district bandwidth and to provide a better educational learning environment for students.

Disks, Memory Drives, Cell Phones and CD’s – Scholars may bring disks, USB memory drives, and/or CD’s to school for use in computer systems with teacher approval. Any memory device/disk is not considered private and is subject to examination, search, and must be turned over to teacher upon request. Any memory device/disk inspected and found to have inappropriate material / unauthorized material is subject to confiscation and will result in demerits and other disciplinary action. Also, Scholars may not download software onto district computer systems without specific permission.

NO SCHOLAR MAY CREATE OR USE AN OUTSIDE/PRIVATE NETWORK AT ANY TIME WHILE IN SCHOOL. SCHOLARS CAUGHT CREATING A WIFI OR ACCESS POINT WITH CELLPHONES OR OTHER UNAUTHORIZED DEVICE WILL HAVE THAT DEVICE IMMEDIATELY CONFISCATED AND WILL BE SUBJECT TO ADDITIONAL DISCIPLINARY ACTION. NO UNAUTHORIZED DEVICE WILL BE CONNECTED TO THE SCHOOL NETWORK WITHOUT SPECIFIC PERMISSION. NO UNAUTHORIZED, ILLEGAL, OR INAPPROPRIATE CONTENT MAY BE ACCESSED PRIVATELY ON PERSONAL TECHNOLOGY EQUIPMENT WHILE ON SCHOOL PROPERTY.


Operating System Configuration – Adding or deleting icons to the desktop is prohibited. Changing the background on the monitor or screen saver is prohibited. Scholars should not make any changes to the configuration of the district computer systems.

No Cheating – Scholars should not share files in the attempt to cheat on assignments. File sharing should only be done if the class assignment directs a Scholars to do so. Scholars should not print multiple copies of a file in an attempt to allow others to cheat from their original works. Scholars should show integrity by not cheating or by creating an environment where others may cheat. Cheating may cause the Scholar(s) loss of some or the entire grade.

Listening – Scholars should listen while the teacher is giving directions or giving information. Scholars should attend to the directions and follow them the first time they are given. This classroom environment thrives on the importance of teamwork, leadership, integrity, honesty, work habits, and organizational skills. The Scholar is expected to use teamwork to solve problems and questions first before asking for assistance

Appropriate Language – Scholars should use appropriate language when conversing with the teacher and when conversing with other students. Slander, cursing, racial remarks, and remarks made that are demeaning to specific groups of people are inappropriate and should not be used. Scholars should demonstrate respect for the teacher, themselves, and for others in their speech and in their tone.

NO FOOD, DRINKS, GUM OR CANDY – No food or drinks are allowed in the classroom unless otherwise approved by the teacher.

Absent or Makeup Work – It is the responsibility of the Scholar to make arrangements with the teacher for work missed when absent due to illness, doctor’s appointments, field trips, school sponsored event, etc.

Radio’s, Music Players, Games, Head Phones, Cell Phones, and other electronic devices – Headphones should not be worn during class unless directed by the teacher for a specific assignment or individual work. The school policy on the use of cell phones will be strictly enforced. Personal music CD’s and DVD’s should not be brought to class and played in the CD/DVD ROM drives. These devices should be kept out of sight and not be used in the classroom. Devices that are confiscated will be taken to the Principal’s office.

Criminal Activity – Hacking and sabotage are criminal activities covered by federal and state laws. Damage to data, equipment, or functionality of software programs and operating systems are severe offenses that may be subject to substantial fines and penalties under law. Removal of hardware, equipment, software and supplies, and other properties from the classroom are considered theft. Browsing unauthorized files or district content through the school provided network is a federal crime. Scholars should not try to guess passwords to hack into teacher accounts or the accounts of others. Scholars should only access areas they are authorized to use and have been given rights to access. Scholars should use the network for academic purposes only. Network resources should not be wasted including bandwidth and printer usage. All FERPA, state and local access restrictions on content will be strictly adhered too.

Integrity (13 Characteristics)

13 Characteristics of People Who Have Integrity

1. They Value Other People's Time: They value their own time so they also value the time of other people. They know you have plenty of other places you need to be and won’t hold you up. If you spend time with them, it is likely they will thank you for that as well.

2. They Give Credit Where It Is Due: They do not take credit for things they did not do. They will always credit those who deserve it. If you help this person with a project he or she will likely mention your name so you can take credit for your work.

3. They Are Authentic: They are their truest forms. You won’t catch them in a lie or being fake.

4. They Are Always Honest: They are honest people that feel no need to lie as it is important for them to get to where they need to get in life honestly.

5. They Never Take Advantage Of Others: They are not the kind of people who will take advantage of someone else. They love to build people up and help them get where they need to be. Taking too much from someone else will never be an issue with someone who has a lot of integrity.

6. The Do Not Argue Over Disagreements: They will talk through things in a civil manner or not talk at all. You cannot and will not force this person into arguing over something completely ridiculous. I find this to be a very respectable trait.

7. They Give Most People The Benefit Of The Doubt: They try to see the good in everyone. I think this is because they feel like maybe there are more people in this world that also have integrity. That being said, if you take advantage of them too much they will get rid of you.

8. They Know When Something Is Bothering Someone: They have a great intuition that lets them know when something is going on. If someone is down in the dumps they will notice. Chances are they will actually do what they can to cheer you up.

9. They Believe In Others: They accept your word as truth until it is dis-proven. That being said, they do not take lying well. And once you lie to them, it is unlikely that they will ever take your word again.

10. They Apologize First: If they have done something wrong they will come to you and apologize. This is just how they are. They own up to their mistake and try to make things right.

11. They Are Humble: They do not quite know their own worth. While they are very important and do so much good they don’t quite see it. You should remind them of it.

12. They Do Good When They Can: They are always helping other people. They love to know that they have improved someone’s life. It gives their lives meaning.

13. They Are Always Kind To Those Who Need It: Giving kindness can go a long way. When someone looks like they need a little pick me up these people deliver. They can brighten up almost anyone’s day.

If you are someone who has true integrity, thank you for being who you are and thank you for all that you do. You really do actually make a difference in society, please keep up the good work. If you feel no one else is proud of you, know that I am.
