Each of my students is required to maintain a course binder. This helps improve organizational skills and will certainly lead to a better chance at a successful year in my classroom. Here are the expectations and policies regarding the binders… The 3ring binder should be 1.5”. You should have a minimum of 5 tabbed dividers in your binder. The sections are as follows:
*Notes on looseleaf notebook paper & ‘handout notes’ should be in the 5^{th} section in your binder. Please have notebook AND graph paper in one of the pockets of your binder if at all possible. I will check binders on Fridays (5 out of 9 per quarter). The binder checks are worth 10 points. I will look for overall organization, welldivided sections, and proper materials enclosed. In addition, I will ask you to show me a randomlyselected HOMEWORK assignment from the week. You should be able to flip to the document and be able to show that it is completed and in the right section. Should you follow the above guidelines, you will receive 10 points on your binder checks. At the end of each quarter, we will “reset” the binders, moving some items to a backup 2 pocket folder or something similar. I will keep you notified about how to do this as it arises.
