The first 5-10 minutes of class will be spent on the warm-up exercises at the beginning of each lesson. 

The plan is to one lesson a day.  Together we will go over the new material and practice as necessary before the assignment is given.

Once the new assignment is given, you will have whatever time remains to work on it.  SHOW YOUR WORK!

You can expect to have homework for each lesson.  Whatever you are unable to finish during class should be finished either in study hall or taken home as homework.

You will have a test every 2-3 weeks.  They will generally be over 5 lessons at a time.  Again, SHOW YOUR WORK!

Graded Papers
Graded Papers will be returned to you as soon as possible.  You will then have the option to do corrections.

You may correct any problem you get wrong.  Please do them on a separate piece of paper and then staple them to the original assignment.  Each corrected problem is worth full credit.  Corrections may also be done on texts where a half point can be regained.  Corrections are highly recommended!

Deuteronomy 6:4-7

4  Listen, O Israel! The Lord is our God, the Lord alone. 
5  And you must love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul, and all your strength. 
6  And you must commit yourselves wholeheartedly to these commands that I am giving you today. 
7  Repeat them again and again to your children. Talk about them when you are at home and when you are on the road, when you are going to bed and when you are getting up.
