3 ring binder with clear view/insert cover. This way the students can keep the syllabus in view at all times. (Medium sized is fine – not super-thin or super-thick)
5 tabbed dividers: notes, handouts, quizzes, tests, papers
Pen and pencil
5 retractable highlighters: orange, green, blue, pink, yellow. Sharpie is the best brand. You will need to repurchase during the year.
Student composition book (sewn type, not spiral) to use for a Commonplace Book: a place to collect vocabulary, quotes, and examples from their reading.
World Lit Only: 50 3×5 index cards each of 3 different colors. Color choice is up to you, but you’ll need 3 different ones. I recommend either a way to keep these contained and organized in your binder – a folder that can be closed so your cards will stay together.
