My name is Don Emerson and I am your son’s/daughter’s social studies teacher. I have been in education for approximately nineteen years and this is my eighth year at Tri-Point High School.
Below you will find a link to the syllabus for your son’s/daughter’s social studies class. In the syllabus you will find a course description, textbook used, requirements, information on tests, quizzes, projects, and student portfolio. More importantly though you will find the rights and responsibilities your son/daughter has in my class as well as the rules that go along with those rights and responsibilities. Finally, my grading system is included on the last page.
I am encouraging you to read this syllabus. I am striving to provide a positive experience for your son/daughter in my class. I am attempting to be proactive rather than reactive by making my expectations clear to the students and parents.
I hope we can work as partners to provide your son or daughter with a positive and effective education. Please feel free to call me at school.
