Helpful Hints of Notebook Organization
One copy of the “Table of Contents” will be provided at the first of the year. Any additional copies will be your responsibility. MAKE SURE YOU WRITE ON IT EVERYDAY WE GO INTO THE CLASSROOM.
Make sure you record your assignments correctly on the “Table of Content’s” sheet. Do this right when you walk in the room. Check them off as you do them. The notebook will not be graded if the “TOC” handout is not completed correctly.
All assignments should be completed and placed into the correct divider area ( any assignment left in notebook pockets will not be graded). MAKE SURE YOU NUMBER YOUR ASSIGNMENTS FOR QUICK REFERENCE.
The most recent assignment of that divider areas should be placed in front of the previous (old) assignments.
The student must be responsible for making up missed assignments. One may view the “TOC” board (posted in the classroom) in order to check for completed or missed assignments. You will be allowed to stay in the classroom on block days to get caught up.
When a “notebook check” takes place and your work is not ready, then it is considered “Late”. It’s now your responsibility to bring the “late” notebook to the classroom before school starts (9:10 – 9:25). “Late” notebooks will not be graded during classroom time.
Each assignment should have a title and complete heading. A Number on Top
Assignment # & divider are ( upper left) Name, date, period ( upper right)
Keep your notebook in the classroom. If you lose it by taking it out or not having it on notebook check day, it is an ‘F’.
