"Double entry notes" on the textbook are required for some of Howard Culbertson's classes. They are used, for instance, in the Bridge section of Cultural Anthropology for students needing to make up absences.
Using a full sheet of paper, turn in "double-entry" notes for the textbook section listed in the course syllabus. To do this, create two columns on a blank sheet of paper. At the top of the left column write: "Word, phrase or sentence from text." Above the right column, write: "Ah-ha, that reminds me of . . . This means . . ."
Special note for MCS students: Beginning with the chapter on Deism (number three), try to reflect on how you might share your Christian faith with someone of the worldview being described by that particular chapter.
