Brian Queen

Welcome! 

Welcome to the the 6th grade. My name is Mr. Queen. I began teaching in 2007. I am married and have a daughter and son. I enjoy teaching, and I love social studies.

My Classroom

 

Procedures: I expect all students to follow my procedures. This will ensure that every student has an opportunity to learn. Failing to do so could result in silent lunch, after school detention, or office referral.

 

Come in quietly and sit down.

 

Get out class materials and begin your warm-up without talking.

 

Raise your hand if you have a question or comment.

 

No one is to be out of their seat during instruction or without permission.

 

Treat others with respect.

 

What to do when you are finished with your assignments:

 

Finish homework (Any class)

 

Read a book

 

Sit quietly

 

Laptops are not open unless given permission

 

Do not disturb others!

 

 

Folder and composition book

 

You will have a folder that is kept in the classroom. You will put daily work into this folder. Daily assignments and the folder are not to leave the classroom. You will need 1 composition book for Warm-Ups and class notes. You will be responsible for this notebook.

 

Homework

 

Students will have homework- Social Studies Weekly will be given every week starting the 2nd or 3rd week of school. Students will complete 2 sections a week. They will be assigned on Monday and will be due Friday. Students must score a 70 or better. I will reset the test and the student will retake it until a 70 is scored.

Any work not completed in class or make-up work from an absence is considered homework.

 

Grades

 

The grading scale is as follows: A-F
