Check out the Weekly Planner
at the front
of the class and make sure you follow it. Each day you follow the
routine. Not all days are group days. So when it is a group day make
sure you get into your groups as quickly and quietly as possible.
Make sure you are writing nightly in your
response section or reading. The expectation is that you do four or five
chapters per week if they are short chapters and two if they are long.
However, we are only doing Lit. Circles for four weeks so divide your
book into manageable chunks so that you will finish on time. Also, you
must have a journal entry 3/4 of a page per chapter.
Usually we meet in groups twice a week.
You are required to do individual
activities and tests on your own. Often this is given as homework.
