of American literature. The student will learn the traditional
place of capital letters, commas, periods and question marks in
the American sentence and will be encouraged to apply this understanding
to their own writing. Students will be required to write
a minimum of fourteen words.

with emphasis on primary and secondary colors. For the final exam, students
will be expected to pound a series of pegs into their correct holes.

A course designed to familiarize the student with concepts of ownership,
altruism, and ways of combining the two. Students will rapidly move

use it." Required for subsequent classes in dodge-ball and juice time.
