    Each student in my Civics classes is required to keep a notebook. There will be daily entries in the notebook. A template is posted on this website detailing how to make the daily entry. 

    Students in my face to face classes will keep a physical notebook. There has been a spot saved in the classroom if students would like to leave them in class. 

    Online students will either need to keep a physical notebook/folder at home or an online notebook/folder in a file on their computer.

    The notebooks will be collected at the end of each nine weeks. Students at school will leave them with me to grade.

    Online students will either send the notebook/folder to me online if they have chosen to keep an online notebook/folder. If they have a physical notebook/folder I will arrange a drop off box out side of the school for students to leave them. I will also arrange for a pickup box after I have graded them.
