We meet every second week, but you may have homework to finish for the following week. For example, you may have an English class in week 4 followed by a Japanese class, but your English teacher has given you homework to complete for week 5. There will be a homework box outside your English teacher’s classroom. Please drop the homework into the homework box on your way to your Japanese class. If you forget to drop your homework on the box, you can bring it to Professor Armstrong’s office by 3 PM the same day.
