Hi teachers,

a/What do you call a book which a teacher has to write down what he or she teaches a class? For example, today my teacher teaches my class the lesson " The use of the present perfect" ,so he has to write down in the content of lesson column of the book " The use of the present perfect " Is it a register book , a logbook ? For example, Class 8A's register book or Class 8A's logbook.

b/What do you call a book which a teacher uses to write down the marks of students' tests or exams? Is it called the mark book or score book ?

c/What do you call a book which contains all the names of students of a class ? Is it called the rollcall book ?

d/ Can I write like this : Class size: 32 (students)

Absent /absenses with approved reason : 03

Absent/absences without reason : none

Sorry for asking too much ,but I really need these words to be translated exactly into English.

Thank you in advance

From the 50's I remember "rank book" and "lesson plan book," the first for student grades and the second for lesson plans (wow!)

We didn't have a special roll call book, but called the roll from the rank book, and sent "absence slips" to the office.

Recently (did some subbing - different time, different place) the office provided class roster sheets on a daily basis.

Thank you Avangi,

But I think you misunderstand me about lesson plan book .I think in a lesson plan book the teacher writes down all the things he is going to teach and which steps he has to follow in teaching the students . Here I mean the book which the teachers have to write down the title of the lesson only and sign his name ,and this book must be returned to the department of academic affairs of the school after the class is over while the lesson plan book is kept by the teacher himself at home .

How about: Class size: 30

Absent/absences with approved reason: 03

Absent/absences with no reason:none

Best wishes

30 is cool. I'm more familiar with expressions like "excused absences" and "unexcused absences."

I've no experience with the type of lesson log you describe. In the US, the states have always had control of education and teacher certification, etc. Some states have traditionally allowed more local control than others. There's always been a lot of differences between states - at least until Bush's "No Child Left Behind Act" put everybody under the gun. Usually legislators want more control if they're going to vote for more money, but this one didn't even have any money behind it.
Thank you Avangi very much .

Avangi, if you don't mind, could you explain what this sentence means "Usually legislators want more control if they're going to vote for more money, but this one didn't even have any money behind it."

I'm scratching my head especially the "vote for more money "part. I only know you vote for somebody and have never heard of vote for something.
Students: Are you brave enough to let our tutors analyse your pronunciation?
Hi N2g,

In the US, just about every jurisdiction has elected legislators who vote on laws and regulations and how to spend the taxpayers' money. We have the LA City Council of maybe 14 members, the LA County Board of Supervisors (3 or 4 or 5), the California State Legislature, comprising two houses, the Senate and the Assembly, and the United States Congress, comprising the Senate (2 from each state = 100) and the House of Representatives (based on population, four or five hundred members.)

If Federal money is needed for something (building a flood-control dam in Arizona) the House must vote on it. Members of the House often want something in return for their vote. But as a group, they often say, "Okay, we'll give you the money, but only if you make a few changes and do things our way."

Thanks Avangi.

In the UK, it is a register http://dictionary.cambridge.org/dictionary/british/register
