    Interactive Notebooks
    We will be using SS Interactive Notebooks, which are a way to organize information & "interact" with what you are learning.  You will record what you learn, your "input", on the right side of the notebook.  This will include class notes, observations, definitions, facts, etc.  On the left side of your notebook, you will be able to interact with the new material to help you better understand, your "output".  Some of the things this side will include are reflections, predictions, questions, and graphic organizers.   We will be spending time setting up and discussing how to use  the Interactive notebooks and what is expected. It is very easy to learn how to record your input and information from other sources! 
    Our first unit will be....
    American Government!
    Students will connect their lives to the documents that formed our country. While exploring the documents, students discover what makes the United States unique!
