    It is good to begin creating folders in your Google drive for each subject.  Within each subject make a folder for each chapter.

        HW-  Complete Summary Notes Ch 6 Sec 1 p172-175 (Include  p173 Temple of Artemis)

        How to make summaries.  READ  first, then :

        1.  Look at one titled section at a time 

        2. Write the title as a heading.  (You can use color if that works for you.) (For the first page, there is not title.  Label it "Introduction")

        3.  Pick out the most important ideas. 

        4.  Write them in your own words. 

        5. You need at least 2 sentences but no more than half the number of sentences you read to summarize.  A good rule of thumb is at least one sentence per paragraph. 

        6.  Always write the vocabulary and definitions in the section (They don't count as a summary sentence.)

        Look at "Ch 6 Summaries Blank" below for an example.

        Rise of Greece BIG IDEAS

        1.  Ancient Greece was centered around the Aegean Sea- all travel, trade, and life was centered there

        2. Democracy was developed in Greece-  One Man=One Vote

        3. Greece Influenced Rome

        4.  Both Greece and Rome influenced the USA- culture, art, writing, architecture, philosophy, and government
