A typical day in Electronics will begin with a Question or assignment which is on the board, Students are to get their folders from the filing cabinet and start, at least for the first 10 minutes of class, this is our Bell ringer. This allows the teacher to accomplish the attendance and clear the halls of other students late for classes. We then begin the lesson for the day, this generally includes an introduction to the lesson through lecture and review of Key vocabulary terms and objectives for this chapter. Then we will break out into small groups and work on the chapter review questions and /or computer assisted questions, when the book is completed they receive a worksheet and/or Lab Worksheet to accomplish in small groups again.
I generally do not assign homework in electronics and will only issue, on case by case basis, books to take out of the room. I will also provide one notebook and one folder for each student to do their work in and store in my room, I will regularly check these books for weekly participation grades.
