STEP 7 PICK A PIECE OF RIBBON ON THE INSIDE BACK COVER OF YOUR NOTEBOOK, MEASURE UP 6 CM FROM THE BOTTOM TAPE THE RIBBON HERE-ONLY USE A SMALL AMOUNT OF TAPE. THIS WILL BE YOUR BOOKMARK FOR BELLWORK
Remember… IF YOU ARE ABSENT, IT IS YOUR RESPONSIBILITY TO TAKE NOTES FROM YOUR BOOK OR COPY SOMEONE ELSE’S NOTES FOR EACH SECTION YOU MISS!! WRITE NEATLY & TAKE GOOD CARE OF YOUR JOURNAL! DO NOT TEAR PAGES OUT BE CAREFUL THAT THE FRONT & BACK COVERS STAY ON! WE WILL USE OUR JOURNALS FOR NOTES, PRACTICE PROBLEMS (HOMEWORK), BELLWORK, AND STUDYING FOR TESTS TITLE/DATE EACH ENTRY AND PUT THINGS IN THE RIGHT SECTION JOURNALS WILL BE GRADED WITHOUT ADVANCE NOTICE!!
DO NOT USE PEN OR MARKER... PENCIL & COLORED PENCIL ONLY! THE ONLY EXCEPTION TO THIS RULE: BEFORE EACH TEST, HIGHLIGHT EVERY VOCABULARY WORD TO HELP YOU STUDY YOU MAY WRITE ON THE BACKS OF THE PAGES IF THE WRITING ON BOTH SIDES IS LEGIBLE. YOU ABSOLUTELY MUST HAVE YOUR JOURNAL IN CLASS EVERY DAY!!
I WILL NOT SEARCH FOR YOUR WORK! EVERY ENTRY (NOTES, PROBLEMS, BELLWORK, ETC.) SHOULD BE DATED AND ENTERED IN THE TABLE OF CONTENTS. YOUR JOURNAL GRADE WILL REFLECT YOUR EFFORT IN KEEPING YOUR WORK ORGANIZED! ANY ITEMS LEFT OUT, NOT LABELED OR ENTERED OUT OF PLACE WILL LOWER YOUR GRADE.
