Here is the reading schedule for Nectar in a Sieve. Print this if you need to. I expect all students to follow this schedule. Expect occasional quizzes and writing in class. You will do some of the reading on your own, while some will happen in class. There will be TWO tests. One will be for chapters 1-19. The second will cover chapters 20- end. The tests will require both multiple choice and written responses.
