Table of Contents

Maintaining a binder is an important and required part of this class.  As we do not have the funds to purchase a textbook for each student to take home and study nightly we will create our own textbooks!  We will assemble these binders throughout the school year.  A portion of each class will be dedicated to identifying and labeling each item to be kept in each student's binder.  Since a portion of class time is devoted to binder creation and maintenance a subsequent portion of this courses grade will be based on each student's binder.  Please refer to Binder Organization and Binder Rubric for additional grading requirements.  There will also be a Binder Assess each unit grading the organization and completeness of each binder.  

Students are responsible for making sure copies of all items listed on the Table of Contents can be found in the correct location in their binder.  If a student is missing an item they may check the corresponding unit page for a link to an electronic copy of that item.  Unfortunately I do not have electronic copies of all items.  All items listed on this page were also distributed in class and students may always request additional copies of items that do not have a link to an electronic copy.   It is possible that the item in question is a quiz, quest, assess or test that should have been completed in class.  If you do not have this in your binder it may mean that you still need to make up this missed work.  Please make up work within the designated time in order to receive credit.  If you have a grade for this item and simply lost yours, please ask me for a new copy to keep in your binder for future review. The goal is to make sure all students have access to all content material in order to be better prepared for class.
