Welcome to Mrs. Perry's Classroom
AP Human Geography
Phone: 972-396-6975 ext. 1508
Tutoring: Tues AM 7:40-8:10 & Thurs. PM 3:30-4:00
AP HUMAN GEOGRAPHY students need their assigned textbook and Ethel Wood's "AP Human Geography: A Study Guide." $15 for the study guide may be paid online through the Lowery website or by cash or check to the student's teacher The deadline for ordering is Friday, September 14th
In order for my students to be successful learners this year, I expect the following of each of my students:
1. ATTEND class
2. Come PREPARED with materials & a positive attitude
SUPPLIES: agenda/planner, pen, pencil, highlighters,
map pencils, notebook paper,
3 ring binder with dividers
3. Recognize your LEARNING STYLE & use this method to learn in class & to study beyond the classroom
4. COMPLETE all ASSIGNMENTS in a timely manner
5. ASK QUESTIONS when the lesson is not clear to you
6. ATTEND TUTORING when a concept is unclear or when you have fallen
behind in our assignments
7. Be AWARE of DATES important to this class for assignments, tests, projects, etc. This can be accomplished by keeping an agenda, reviewing this class website, and checking the calendar posted in the classroom.
8. Students should CREATE a STUDY GROUP with other students in this class. The group is not a substitute for the individual reading or work (and definitely not for splitting up the work), but two heads are often better than one. I recommend keeping your study group to no more than four or five people as larger groups diminish in effectiveness.This also allows you to get missing notes and help from an additional source should you need it.
