annotating the 3 c approach
Annotating- The 3 C Approach

Three big things to focus on when annotating text for both English and History

  • Connections: Connections from the text to text, text to author, text to self, figurative language connections, author’s craft connections, etc. What do you see/notice?
  • Context: Historical, political, cultural, economic, intellectual, religious, philosophical…What is it about the time period that influences the piece? Where does the piece “fit in?” When was the piece written? What’s the impact?
  • Clarifying Questions: What is confusing to you? What do you think? What does this mean? What questions do you have that you can bring to class for discussion?
reading notes
Reading Notes
  • Along with annotation of primary documents. You will be required to take reading notes whenever textbook reading is assigned. (Tindall and Shi)
  • Reading notes should still focus on the 3 Cs while also adding key factual evidence.
  • Notes must be handwritten and use a clear organizational structure of some kind.
      • Cornell Notes
      • Outlining Notes
homework packets
Homework Packets
  • We will be compiling unit homework packets that will be turned in at the end of every unit.
  • In order to potentially receive full credit, homework must be completed by its due date to obtain a stamp.
  • If homework is turned in with the homework packet without a stamp, it can still earn partial credit.
  • For History~ After each HWP is graded and handed back, you will put it into your three binder along with all other materials (readings, class notes, etc) from that particular unit.
  • It is OK to have your phone out in class, until it becomes a problem.
  • We would prefer that you place the phones on top of your desk so we can see them.
  • We will use our phones for various school related purposes, so it’s important to have it out.
  • If your phone becomes an issue, the teachers reserve the right to take it away until the end of class.
tardy policy
Tardy Policy
  • 3 free passes
  • After 3, each tardy negatively impacts your participation grade in the class.
  • When you reach 5 tardies, you will receive after school detention.
  • Bottom line: Be here and be on time!
  • If you show up late with Starbucks, you’d better have coffee for Ms. Bede and Ms. VanDeBrake too.
food drink
Food & Drink
  • Food and drink are OK, until these things become problematic. If our room becomes a garbage dump, we will ban food from the classroom.

Your Teachers

academic honesty
Academic Honesty
  • All work UNLESS SPECIFICALLY STATED should be completed individually.
  • In the event of academic DIShonesty, credit will be denied, disciplinary action will be taken, and respect will be lost.
