This one-page document was created with students in mind: recorded by students for students who have been absent. There are five areas to complete: class, day and date; key question(s) of the day; learning target(s) for the day; activities and notes; and the last to record homework, other assignments, and due dates. At the beginning of the year, I copy enough to have one for every day of the year and put them in a binder for each class period. One student volunteers or they take turns completing a page for each day. When absent students return, they are instructed to check the binder for what they've missed. This helps to alleviate extra work for the teacher.
