When

  • Wednesdays, 1 p.m. – 4 p.m. Modules which do not have the minimum number of students as of August 19 will be cancelled and NOT offered later in the year.
  • Each in an 8-week modules, the instructor will cover the labs above.
  • After 30 years of experience, we can say that it doesn’t matter that they probably won’t be in sync with the textbook. However, the student MUST be doing the textbook work for the module in which they register. For example, if you sign up for the Earth Science labs, you are expected to be doing a standard Earth Science text.
  • After people sign up for these labs, Mrs. Hancock will determine which time period will go with each module.
