Bell Ringer - Complete your SGI remember all are responsible to turn in their own work. Each student is working with their group, however; each student must independently answer and complete all items in the SGI packet.

Ck-12 Geological Stresses

Today you will access the site, log in, read the text, highlight, take notes, as you prepare for Friday’s test.

 

http://www.ck12.org/earth-science/Geological-Stresses/lesson/Geological-Stresses-HS-ES/?referrer=featured_content

You will also complete “Geological Stresses Practice” and read “Stuck Zipper” real world, as you highlight and take notes.

 

Effective note-taking requires:

•recognizing the main ideas

•identifying what information is relevant to your task

•having a system of note taking that works for you

•reducing the information to note and diagram format

•where possible, putting the information in your own words

•recording the source of the information
