Textbook: Bien Dit French 1 Holt McDougall
A textbook will be provided. Students need to bring their notebook daily along with paper, pencil and pen. Bring a limited number of colored markers or pencils and a French/English dictionary, if possible. (rather than purchasing a dictionary at a retail store, you might find one at the various Marion County Public Library sales)
According to the 2020-2021 Student Handbok, students must take the intiative to make up their work when absent from school. Absent students: Remember to click on the teacher's web site, which will direct you to Micro-soft teams. Students may make up work for full credit: Students have ONE day to make up missed work for each day missed, up to three days. Special arrangements with teachers must be made after an absence of more than three days. No further extensions will be given. Extra credit is NOT an option.
All students need to check their grades on the student portal on a daily basis. Certain assignments can be made up within a period of time determined by the teacher. Don't wait until it is too late. Due dates are very clearly marked on Microsoft Teams.
