Notebook Setup Day
Today’s Objective(s): SWBAT
- Maintain organization of their evidence of learning
Do Now – 1 minute
Completely clear your desk except for something to write with.
LESSON – 40 minutes
Today we will spend the entire period working as a class to set up our notebooks. Please do not work ahead, or write anything in your notebooks unless or until I instruct you to do so.
These notebooks are going to serve as vital learning tools as we move through the rest of the year. But to do so, they need to be set up properly, and used as intended. We’ll go over exactly how to set up and use these notebooks, beginning today.
From this day forward, we’ll use these notebooks daily (with a few exceptions), but again, only as instructed. And in so doing, we’ll develop the habits and routines critical to effective learning.
Closing – 2 minutes
Pair up with one other person at your table and recite to him/her human rights #19-25. Switch and listen to your partner do the same.
Respond to the Basecamp Message Board item titled “Homework: Monday 2/5/18.
- Identify the 30 HRs and articulate why human rights are important to them as individuals
