Please check our online classroom before each class session. There may be a graphic organizer posted to support your note taking. Paper and a pen or pencil are also helpful. Highlighters and post it notes will be useful for class sessions on annotation and color coded notes. The weeks that we are taking notes on written material you are welcome to bring one of your own school assignments to take notes on.
45 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
