Some suggestions to ask yourself:
•Does the leftside clearly show my thinking or restate what I already worked on?
•Can the left summarize all my thinking and it shows my new thinking?
•The output shows my best effort.
•I have synthesized all the info on the right before I created the left side.
•I have highlighted or annotated the right and I have shown that to the reader.
•I have worked with the textbook and went over my notes a second or third time.
•I have highlighted areas I am unclear about.
•Areas I am not clear about I will bring to the class and discuss.
•I have used all my time well in class.
•I have really tried my best on the notebook....
