READING ASSIGNMENTS

If you read about 12 pages per day
 you will keep up!

(And the pages are small in Sophie's World!)

 DAILY QUIZZES
Daily quizzes are given at the beginning of each class. The questions are taken from the assigned readings
for the day.  Each quiz is worth a possible 20 points.
  There will be a quiz following the special focus
 session worth a possible 10pts. It cannot be made up.
 

 WHAT'S the GROUP'S PHILOSOPHY?

 "What's the Group's Philosophy" is to be completed and handed in at the end of class.  Each one is worth a possible 5 pts to each student in the group and cannot be made up.

These are note for your group to help in presenting your groups "philosophy."
 Dissenting opinions may be included.

These exercises are designed to help you consolidate your thinking on the days work.
