DESCRIBING CI TO STUDENTS
Hand out Letter Home to Parents (from ANATTY) to be completed and signed.
Hand out Interpersonal Communication Skills Rubric (from ANATTY) and review behavior and daily engagement expectations with students.
BEHAVIOR EXPECTATIONS / DAILY ENGAGEMENT ASSESSMENT
- AUDI! – Listen with the intent to understand. One person speaks and the others listen.
- RESPONDE! – Respond to statements (wow!) and questions (yes/no/answers) in Latin. Interact, creatively and appropriately, with the teacher and others.
- QUARE! – Let the teacher know when he/she isn’t being clear. Ask for clarification or help when necessary.
- SPECTA! – Sit up, head up, eyes open and focused on the Latin. Do your 50%. Nothing on the desk unless told otherwise.
- HIGH EXPECTATIONS = HIGH ACHIEVEMENT
- ALWAYS do the best you can. Never give up trying. To give up is to fail.
- You EARN your own grade. A grade cannot be given.
- Be HONEST. This means absolutely no cheating or plagiarism.
- Take ownership of and responsibility for your school work. TURN IN work on time.
- CHALLENGE yourself. Don’t be afraid to ask questions or make mistakes.

Students will be given a Unit MGMT Sheet (original idea courtesy of Jon Cowart, redesigned by Lance Piantaggini; here is my version) to complete each day. They will turn in the sheet at the end of each unit.
I have purposely limited this sheet to one, double-sided page to cut down on the copies necessary to print, hand out, and collect, as well as grade.
