Reading Instructions: Reading Guides are separated into 3 parts. Part 1 is identification. Define and explain the
significance of the terms listed. Part 2 is Main Idea Notes. Each main idea of the chapter is listed, while reading
you need to take notes on that main idea, covering the information thoroughly. These notes can be in any form
you like. Part 3 are short answer questions. You will need to write a short 3-5 sentence summary of the section you
just read. This should be done on your own notebook paper. It is important that you read the entire section, not
just the parts needed to fill out the reading guide. There is an incentive for completing your reading guides on time
when it comes to taking quizzes. Please do not copy reading guides from another student. That harms both of you.
