Outside Reading

Now that you have had the opportunity to peruse the outside reading assignment, I hope you will get started on it quickly. I'm asking more of you than I did before, but I wouldn't be asking for it if I didn't feel like you could do it. I think that good students who become successful adults are ones who challenge themselves, not ones who are satisfied with just skating by. This is an accelerated course which means that challenge is a part of the curriculum. With that said, I do understand that many of you participate in sports, have part-time jobs, and/or have other strenuous classes. That is why I am giving you a month plus to complete this and why I will give you some time in class to work on it. Do not leave it until the last minute.

Please remember that your book must be pre-approved by Friday, February 6 at 2 p.m. You can do this in person or via email

You may also schedule a time to present your visual assignment by visiting me in person or via email. I suggest you have two dates in mind when trying to schedule this.
