## Reflection: Organizational Systems Line It Up! - Section 1: Do Now

One strategy for organizing my class notes which has worked well is using a template on my powerpoint or whiteboard slides.  Here this Line It Up - Do Nowfor the lesson.  I find that my students know and expect the Do Now questions to be in the same place, and also, can easily identify where the objective is and also the homework assignment.

I also use homework numbers to help students (and myself!) keep organized.  The HW #14 that is shown in this slide represents either a worksheet or set of problems from our textbook.  These assignments can be found on each Unit Outline which I provide students with at the beginning of each unit.  These are easy to follow and I believe help to mimic outlines which they will receive in college.  Another benefit is that students who are absent still have access to content which will be covered in class and can work on this when they are up to it.
