✏️ I provide a calendar of “homework”. This homework is not graded, it is in preparation for class. The “homework” is to read the text and watch the presentation another student prepared based on that reading.
✏️ In class we do Socratic Seminars to discuss each reading, take multiple choice quizzes and practice FRQs and essays.
✏️ I am responsible for presenting in class (before assigning readings/videos) on the historical and cultural context of each time period so students are prepared.
This all seems like a lot, but I guarantee you that is doable. “Homework" should only take 30 min per day and I provide students with links to audiobooks to make their comprehension easier.
I'm sharing my calendar in hopes that you find it helpful, but please note that this is based on what works for my students. Make a copy, edit the calendar or don't use it at all if you think it won't be helpful.
