Test Make-Up Policy
January 30, 2019
At the beginning of this semester we discussed a new policy regarding test make-ups.
If you know you are going to miss an exam, please let me know ASAP and schedule a time to make it up upon your return. If you do not make an appointment to do so, you will not be allowed to make up the exam/essay.
If you are gone the day of a test (sick, injured, emergency, etc.) you have TWO DAYS after you return to school to make up the exam (as per school policy). If you fail to do so within that time period you will not be allowed to make up the test.
Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns! Thanks.

Tips for taking notes while reading
August 28, 2018
After some of our discussions today, I thought of some suggestions that may help you improve your reading notes.
first and foremost: check my notes!!!!! they will help you.
Here are the rest...
1) Read the chapter first, then go back and identify what you think is important.
2) Write a few bullet points to summarize the end of every heading/page. (what are the key points at the end of the section?)
3) Anytime something is the "first" or "new" anything, write it down.
4) Work with friends and compare notes!
5) Be specific with your terminology
