Interactive Binder and Table of Contents What is the purpose of the Interactive Binder? The purpose of the interactive binder is to enable you to be a creative, independent thinker and writer. Interactive binder will be used for class notes as well as for other activities where you will be asked to express your own ideas and process the information presented in class.
Interactive Binder The Right Side: Most of the Time This side of the notebook is for lecture notes or other information that I will ask you to keep. Your notes will be structured so that key ideas are clear. Your highlighter will be used to accent key ideas and facts that will be used in tests. The Left Side: Most of the Time This side will be used for a variety of activities, which will be most of your homework assignments. Left side activities will ask you to tie into your previous knowledge and to demonstrate your understanding of new ideas.
Interactive Binder How will my notebook be graded? Binders will be checked periodically for accuracy, neatness, and completed assignments. An important part of your binder is its visual appearance. It is a reflection of you and your learning. It needs to be neat and well organized. Each entry should be titled, dated, and have your name. Keep in mind that your binder will count as a daily grade every week. Put effort into it!
Interactive Binder What happens if I am absent? If you are absent for any reason such as illness, field trip, or anything else that keeps you out of the room, it is your responsibility to obtain binder assignments from either a binder buddy or the teacher. There will be a “teacher binder” which you can refer to for missing assignments or activities. The assignments are also posted on my website. I will not remember that you were absent on a particular day, so you must be the one to get the assignments from me. Please do not say to me when asked about a missing assignment, “I was absent that day.” This will not be considered an excuse for not completing the make up work.

What do you know about our government? American Government
The United States can trace its democratic roots back to Ancient Greece. The British colonist brought the idea of limited governments to North America including Canada and Mexico. Our forefathers wrote the Constitution to create a government in which we would elect representatives to decide on our laws and how to run our country. This type of democracy is called a constitutional republic.
American Government It is a limited government because the leaders cannot do whatever they want. They are limited by the rules in place in our Constitution. The people are the basis of government in the United States. The people elect the representatives to make decisions. Voting in an election is our responsibility as a citizen. One of the cultural contribution of the U.S. to other cultures is democracy.
