Class Syllabus

Week 1

Hello Tenacious Tigers!
 This week will be amazing! Please do not be nervous, we will work out any bumps that may occur. Please note that may blog is updated often and I try to adjust if our class timing is off .....as timely as possible. If you notice something is wrong, please let me know.
 For the first week you will find helpful hints and class information as well as all the basic handouts for our first chapter on our blog. Any material may be printed and cross referenced with class discussions. Please remember that although the basic notes are available....extra information may be copied during whole class discussions and/or group discussions. It is always better to take more notes.
 Also, I support the sharing of notes with classmates and offering discussion notes to those who have missed class. We are a team and in this together. Enjoy the last weekend before we get started!!

Mrs. B
