What do you mean by notebook contents?
Each student is responsible for keeping a composition notebook organized and up to date in social studies class. Each unit will consist of bellringers, notes from class discussions and videos, and rotation station activities. Each entry and/or activity should be dated and labeled so that it can be found easily in the composition notebook. Any handouts or mind maps should be dated, labeled, and "tapled" into the notebook in the appropriate place.

Why should I worry about keeping up with notebook contents?
Students will have a notebook check at some point during each unit. This counts as a grade and should be the easiest "100" a student earns. Make sure you check the class website to make sure you are up to date on notebook contents. Don't get too far behind or wait until the last minute to get your notebook together. Notebook checks are not announced in advance. This is an effort to get you and keep you organized. Notebook checks are due the day they are announced. If you left your notebook at home the day of the NB check, you will recieve a "0". Students will not be allowed to call home for someone to bring his/her notebook to school. No late notebooks will be accepted (unless due to student illness/absence.)
