Each chapter of the U.S. History textbook has a handout associated with it that is distributed along with a chapter study guide weeks before any test is given. The chapter handout is collected and graded at the end of a unit of instruction. Students are expected to take detailed, comprehensive notes on each textbook chapter section and then answer section review questions in their notebooks when assigned. The chapter packet has a separate activity for each chapter section which is to be completed after notes and section reviews are finished. The chapter activities are due when all of the chapter sections have been completed. The study guide distributed along with the chapter handout is due the day before a scheduled test. The students may work on their study guides at any time. I suggest that they type them. Class notes are to be reviewed nightly in preparation for quizzes and tests.
