“Homework” This section is for your homework which either needs to be done or turned in. This section will be mostly empty all the time.

Currently, this section should be empty, with only one or two pieces of paper unless: You have not turned in your permission slip, then you put your permission slip on top of the piece of paper. You have not finished your Cross Word Puzzle from Yesterday, then this goes on top of the piece of paper. If you have not turned in a signed letter to a “teacher” write on the piece of lined paper, “Get signed copy of Teacher Letter”
“Literature Notes” This section of your binder is for the notes we take on different literary patterns and eras.

“Reading and Analysis” This section is for your various reading activities. This is a working section and may be the hardest to keep organized over the course of time. Currently, this section should contain: Plot Line on “To Build a Fire” Viewing Activities from “Apollo 13” Epics Chart from “Gilgamesh” Comics on “Gilgamesh” If any of this is missing, do not worry about it, but from now on anything along these lines gets dated and goes here.
“Writing” This section is for any activity designed to make you better writers. Keep all your own writing here as well. If it is something you have turned in electronically, it is your responsibility to print it out and put it here. Currently, this section should include: Notes on Persuasive Paragraph Structure (If you do not have, get them) Paragraph predicting the chances of the Man from “To Build a Fire” Paragraph doing the same for the astronauts in Apollo 13.
