READING SCHEDULE
Read and take notes each night over the pages assigned. Label each reading assignment with
the appropriate page numbers and sections in the event you are given a pop quiz over a
certain section. Keep up with the reading schedule unless I tell you otherwise. This means if you
miss a class or there is a snow day, you are still responsible for the reading and note-taking.
Regardless of where we are in our discussion, you must keep up with the reading schedule.
