SAVING FILES

When saving files in class always remember two things:
1. Give the file a good name
2. Tell the computer where to save the file

Make sure to keep your files organized. I recommend making a folder for each project and saving you files there.

TAKING NOTES

Good note taking is a skill you will use throughout high school and college. Look at the examples on the Course Docs.

WRITING FRAME

The writing frame can be used to create well composed written works. It gives you a structure that can be applied to school papers or standardized tests. Look at the example under the Course Docs.
