Study Skills Syllabus

Instructor: Dennis Porter


Course Description:  Study Skills/Special Education is a course for students with IEPs.  Special education is geared toward providing additional services, support, programs, specialized placements or environments to ensure that all students' educational needs are provided for.  In the class, students will: learn more about their disability, learn strategies to help them work within their disability, receive more instructional support, and learn skills as well as practice being their own self advocate.  

Grades:  Grades in this class will be based on:

Homework:  There is no homework for this class.  Homework assistance will be given during the class.  This does NOT mean that you should leave all your homework for Study Skills. You will not have enough time to do all your assignments in the time allotted for homework assistance. Students are expected to do their homework daily, at home, and only bring problems that they have more questions on, or have a difficult time understanding.  To be successful in all your classes, it is imperative that you do your assignments in those classes, if given time to do so, and at home.  

Advisory: If you need help during advisory, please have me sign your planner BEFORE advisory.

Expectations: Students in this class will follow the student handbook.  Other expectations for the classroom are:
