Each of my students will need either a composition notebook or a spiral notebook for class every day. These notebooks will be checked at least once per 9 weeks for a test grade. Maintaining a notebook will ensure that students have material to study for tests and quizzes, and should be an easy test grade 4 times throughout the school year!
P.S. I may do random notebook checks throughout the school year for extra credit points…
Both 9th and 10th grade students will be given five vocabulary words every Monday. These words come from a list of commonly used words on the SAT. There will be a quiz every Friday over the 5 words from that week, and the 5 words from the week before (for a total of 10 words per quiz). Make sure you look over these words on your own! We will only go over them as a class once (on Mondays), so it is your responsibility to have them written in your notebook and to know the words and definitions for the quiz Friday.
