• The BIG Three:
     
             Be on time.
             Be prepared.
             Be awake.
     
    BE ON TIME
             
             Looks like:
     
             In seat before the tardy bell rings.
     
    BE PREPARED
     
             Looks like:
     
             You don't need to go back to your locker to get something you need for this class today.
     
    BE AWAKE
     
             Looks like:
     
             Eyes open and brain aware of the classroom world around you.
     
             Personal observation: Those of you who typically wait until "this morning" to go to bed "last night" may have difficulty with this one.
                                                 Bummer!
     
    FYI:  Failure to get along with the BIG THREE will probably cost you points.
