Dear Students & Parents/Guardians:
Welcome to Choctaw Class! The purpose of this class is to help students acquire
beginning-level comprehension, speaking, reading, writing of Choctaw and to
introduce some aspects of Choctaw culture. Students will acquire Choctaw by
hearing it spoken and used in contexts that are easy to understand. Students
will take active roles in mini-plays, dancing, and other hands-on activities
throughout the year.
Materials (needed every day in class):
1. Binder or Folder
2. Pen
3. Notebook paper
4. Choctaw Workbook (provided by School of Choctaw Language)
Grading: Grades will be taken on quizzes, tests, projects, daily work, and
classroom participation.
Classroom Rules:
1. Be on time for class with necessary materials.
2. Respect self, others, and property:
a. Listen while the instructors are speaking.
b. Use appropriate language.
c. Focus on learning and on helping others learn.
3. Keep cell phones away unless granted permission by Choctaw instructor.
School district policy will be enforced.
This is not your typical class. Not only are you learning another language but
this class is presented IETV. During class, I will try to make it very clear to
you what I want you to do or not do. I encourage you to ask for assistance or
clarification on assignments and lectures. If any discipline issues shall arise,
school discipline policy will be followed.
After we discuss these points and I have answered your questions, please sign
below and have a parent/guardian read and sign. Keep this document in your
Choctaw binder at all times.
