Click on the calendar page to view homework assignments and upcoming tests/quizzes (if possible, I will attach a copy of the homework on the date it is assigned). Although it is not always listed, students should be reading at home every night. Click on the handouts link to find copies of class notes.
Take a look at some books I have read, and recommend to my students! (Please keep in mind that my students read at different levels, so all books might not be appropriate for all students). (http://pinterest.com/tabrahamsen/) www.goodreads.com (and search for my name).
