  2. 2. EXPECTATIONS: All students are expected to participate in daily activities. The majority of projects in this class will require the use of computers and the internet. As such, students are expected to follow the acceptable use policy they each filled out at the start of their 6th grade year at Oak Valley. “The use of the internet is specifically for educational research. Students should not be checking or sending email from school. This also means they should not be “instant messaging” or chatting from the school computers.” If students are using the school e-mail system to chat during class they will lose all e-mail privileges for the remainder of the class. CLASS PROCEDURES: The first TEN minutes of class will be devoted to typing. Students will use typing games, such as Typing Tutor 10, in order to develop and improve their proficiency. Following, students will work on the given project-based assignment. **NOTE** If you are having any problems completing a project or do not understand an assignment make sure that you come to me for help as soon as possible.
