Required Supplies for all Courses, 2013/2014

In case you have found this site and are in my Global II or US History classes for the 2013-2014 school year, here is a list if the supplies you will need to have with you in class each day:
  • A binder (loose-leaf.)  A 1-2 inch binder for just my class is fine, or you may have a section in a much larger binder for my class.  However, if you have no dividers in a binder you are using for "everything" you will be considered unprepared.
  • Plenty of loose-leaf paper.
  • Several black ball point pens (not gel pens, you cannot use those on the Regents Exam so you shouldn't use them in class.)  You can use blue if you choose, but black is best for the Regents Exam so you might as well start getting used to their rules.  Don't bother with pencils either - you can't use them on the Regents, so you can't use them in class or any graded work.
  • A highlighter (any color, as long as it's a highlighter.)
If you or your parents are like me you/they won't want to wait on huge lines the first weeks of school to get your supplies.  I have been seeing a lot of sales in many stores starting already as well.  Plus, you start later than ever this year, so we will start classes the first day.  You are expected to be in school, prepared with at least a notebook or binder with paper and pens, on the first day.  This is true for every teacher you have on your schedule.

I look forward to seeing you next month!  Enjoy the rest of the summer!
