Ms. Galloway emailed me. That's why it's quoted. That's why we have a forum.

Thanks for posting this!!

And you know how for our chapter notes we have to write the theme in the left column? Are we supposed to choose from the themes that are listed here on what William posted?

And also, on the syllabus Ms. Galloway says, "Every assignment will have to have one image." So only one image for each chapter?

I'm writing themes and questions on the left hand column and making several images. I think it's more than one image per chapter. I'm not exactly sure. Either way, the images are supposed to help you and just having ONE image per chapter maybe difficult because each chapter covers a broad range of different topics/people.

EDIT:
I'll work on making this a checklist when I have time.

OK thanks, William!

Melanie: Yea the image is for ourselves. And I'm not sure if we have to do the notes exactly like she did, because she told me I could just make my notes the way I did over the summer, because she approved of my format. But I'm going to do it her way anyway, and as for themes, I'm confused about where we get them.. but I will ask her tomorrow.

Yufei: I'm pretty sure we follow the notes format on the syllabus (she did bacon's rebellion as an ex.). I think we do the one-pager when she specifically tells us we have to do a one-pager. Usually she will tell us to do one-pagers after we read primary documents.

Do you think the formatting for our notes is helpful? I think it's okay albeit a bit confusing. Hmmm, I should finish them up.
