You are now in third-level, I expect you to behave as such. I am not your secondary school teacher, it is not my job to correct your behaviour and give out to you if you don’t do your homework, or if you misbehave in class. No one is making you come to class, so if you choose to come to class, I expect you to treat your classmates, the classroom, and me with respect.
That said, I want to make this experience as much fun as possible. I want to give you a five-minute break in the middle of each class, so after half an hour I will stop don’t what I’m doing and give you something else to do for a few minutes. If I forget to give you a break after 30 minutes of teaching, will you let me know. I will give a five minute break every day that everyone is showing respecting for the classroom experience.
I have three different exam papers written for this module: ◦ One is fairly easy ◦ One is medium ◦ One is hard Your behaviour will determine which paper you are getting.
I don’t want anyone coming into class 15 minutes after the hour, if anyone does the whole class (not just your classgroup) earns one “demerit”. I don’t want to have to ask anyone to be quiet in class, if I have to, the whole class (not just your classgroup) earns one “demerit”. I don’t want anyone disrespecting their classmates, the classroom, or me, if this happens, the whole class (not just your classgroup) earns one “demerit”.
One “demerit” means that I an not going to give you the next five-minute break. ◦ Between zero and five “demerits” by November 1st means you are all getting the fairly easy exam paper. ◦ Six to fourteen “demerits” by November 1st means you are all getting the medium exam paper. ◦ Over fifteen “demerits” by November 1st means you are all getting the hard exam paper.
