This post contains the final section of notes on water resources (from Ch. 11). These notes, and the previous notes on abiotic cycles and properties of water are all fair game for our first Unit Test this semester, which will be on Wednesday, Feb. 29th (LEAP DAY!)
Students will receive a Study Guide in-class on Friday, Feb. 24th. They should use this Guide and the blog posts to make sure that their Cornell Style Notes are complete.
Students are allowed to use their Notes during their scheduled Unit Test, but they should be aware that Mr. Hatfield will review their notes to see if they are completed: 3-4 questions or comments in an extended margin on each page, proper headings, underlining/highlighting, original summaries at the end of sections.
If the Notes are complete, students will receive an above-average grade on the Notes and be allowed to use them throughout the Exam. If they are below a certain minimal standard of completion, the Notes will be confiscated and receive a lower grade----and of course students will not be able to employ these Notes for the rest of the Exam.
PLEASE NOTE THAT ADDITIONAL TIME IS AVAILABLE on the date of the Unit Text (Wednesday, Feb. 29th), either at lunch or after school. Students who do not plan their schedules to take advantage of the additional time, or who miss the scheduled exam date for whatever reason, will be assigned a Makeup Test when they return to class.
