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.
phones
Phones
  • 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.
