The pace chart will help you manage your assignments to complete the course. It is a good idea to put a start date for each week so that you will always know what is due when.

What is a Pace Chart?

Tracking

Your work is due on Sunday. I have a paper pace chart with your name on it. I check on Fridays and then again on Mondays to see if youve submitted the minimum amount of work due. Youll see a reminder from me on Friday if you havent turned in the minimum work due yet.

Work ahead whenever possible. Do more than the minimum!!!

(Find this pace chart in Ms. Ezells Corner of Discussion Group)
