Each day your son or daughter will follow a daily routine. A "Do Now" is given and students will usually take the first 5-10 mins to read or answer questions based on the previous class work or homework.

The next 20 minutes is a blend of group work, readings, discussions or seminars on the topic of the day.

The last 5-10 minutes is a summation with checks for understanding and giving students a chance to start the days assignment or homework. This time is used to make sure students know what is expected for the next day, to help students who may need more one on one attention with the days topic, or to reiterate the days lesson.
