  1. Pick up a planner. Write your name on the outside.
  2. List any due dates and events you have this week.
  3. Think-Pair-Share: What is easier about sophomore year than freshman year? Harder? Similar? When you get a marker, add to the board.
  1. Take out your copy of the 2016-2017 Student Handbook (linked here if you've already lost yours).
  2. Take 5 minutes to read through the handbook and make annotations in the margins.
  3. On a sheet of paper, create AT LEAST 5 questions about parts of the handbook that you think might be important. Include the answer and page number!
  4. Tomorrow you will hunt through the handbook to answer your classmates' questions, so no sharing or peeking.
  5. These questions might also appear in the Buddy Day Kahoot next week!
  6. Hand your paper to me at the end of the period.
3) Exit Ticket: Share your wisdom with the freshmen by posting on the padlet below!
