Students analyze their schedule to help them determine the amount of time they can work on their homework, which includes 30 minutes minimum of reading they need to do every day.

Only one book they read each quarter much be in the thematic subject I specify, the remainder of their reading choices are up to them. The required thematic book this quarter is "The Challenge of Heroism." Quarterly book logs were handed out and are always available in class as well.
