7 Classwork/Note Organization Students have a spiral language arts notebook and a social studies notebook throughout the year. They will record notes in their notebooks and glue in handouts. My lecture notes are on my website, so if they are absent, or if they miss part of the notes in class, they have access to them. The notebooks are part of their classwork grade. I will check them a few times a quarter to make sure they are complete, and they will receive a grade based on completion. Office Hours : Wednesdays before school, lunch, and after school or by appointment Homework : 30 – 45 minutes a night language arts and social studies + 20 minutes independent reading Homework/Classwork : Graded on completion only.
