Labeling Your Composition Book

Please follow directions carefully. A mislabeled notebook is very difficult to correct.


Claim It!

  • On the front cover, use a permanent marker (Sharpie) to write:

    • First and Last Name

    • Your class period


Open your notebook…

  • Write your name and today’s date in the center of the first page. This is your Title Page.


Turn the page. Look at the back of your Title Page.

  • At the top of this page write: Table of Contents.

  • Place a small number 2 on the top right side. This is your page number.

  • Number down the left side of your page beginning with 7—yes 7. Do not begin with 1. Pages 1 – 6 are your Table of Contents, therefore they do not need to be labeled as such.

  • Number all lines consecutively: 7, 8, 9, 10, 11…


Use this example to get started:

Do not stop numbering at 20. Number as many lines as your notebook has.


Label the page facing page 2:

  • At the top write: Table of Contents

  • Place a small number 3 on the top right side.


Turn the page. Label this page also as Table of Contents.

  • Be sure to write the number 4 as your page number.


Label pages 5 and 6 as Table of Contents.

  • Use small numbers on the upper right corners as your page numbers.

  • Now you see why on the first page of your Table of Contents you started with the number 7. You will not have any work on pages 1-6. Your work starts on page 7, therefore, your Table of Contents begins with page 7.


Numbering your pages.

  • Go ahead and number all of your pages through the number 30.

  • Remember: Number the front and back of every sheet.

  • Odd-numbered pages will be the front.

  • Even-numbered pages will be the back.

  • Number carefully.

7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26…


Turn back to page 7.

  • Label this page: Diagnostic Essay.


Diagnostic Essay

  • Your first assignment in your Composition Notebook will be to write an essay on a topic assigned to you.

  • The purpose of this essay is to give me an idea of your strengths and weaknesses as a writer.

  • Your writing will be scored, but your score will not affect your grade; however, your score will determine your level of need for additional writing practice.

  • Do your best work.

  • Feel free to use pages 7, 8, 9, and 10 of your notebook.


Expository Essay Topic

Writing Prompt:

Imagine that you could give advice to someone—it could be someone you know personally, a historical figure, or a famous person living today. Who is this person and what advice would you give them? Choose a familiar subject so that you can provide details and elaboration that explain why this person needs your advice.

Writing Directions:

Write an essay that identifies a person you would give advice to and explain the advice you would give him or her.
