  • In each module, you will be responsible for recording information in your notebook both during class and outside of class. It is your responsibility to bring it to every class. If the pace of the lesson moves faster than your ability to record the notes, it is your responsibility to leave space and return to the lesson PowerPoint (PPT) after class to complete the notes.

    Each entry in your notebook must include:

    1. A title of the entry (use the name of the video, PPT, or lesson objective)

    2. A page number (this is to help you find the entry when referencing your Table of Contents)

    3. date of the entry (use the date of the class lesson or date that you completed the note)

    These three criteria should be on both the entry page AND in the Table of Contents.
