14 WHERE DO I GET STARTED?  Once we have created a Eng. 080 Activity Log and folder for you, we will store these at the English 080 station in Page One.  Every time you come in, you will begin by picking up your folder here and clocking in on the Time Keeper.

15 WHAT IS A TIME KEEPER? The Time Keeper keeps track of the time you spend in the Page One Writing Center – so it is important to clock in and out because this is an additional way we can record your Student Success Activities. Our friendly greeters will help you create an account on the Time Keeper.
