AP Calendar Event
On Monday, I explained to our students the need to get focused over the next six weeks for the National Exam.
I told my students that we  needed a strategy to help us execute and achieve the goal of passing the National Exam.
This plan would begin with a calendar. I passed out a blank calendar and helped them plan for this week.
We discussed the importance of doing the things that were planned and not putting them off till tomorrow.

Items for the calendars this week.
1. Finish reading the CAP book. This must be done..No excuses and everyone agreed. We counted out how many pages everyone still needed to read and divided them by the number of days left in the week. Some had to read 10 pages a day while others 15 to 20.
