Course Work

Dear students and parents,

The standardized coursework for IEP LS3 is intended to run this way:

1. A presentation of the grammar point will be given in class, accompanied by worksheets, games or related activities.

2. If you missed the grammar presentation in class, you can study the grammar presentations at the Grammar Reference section.

3. Students will attempt to do the assigned online grammar exercises at alwaysdothehomework.blogspot.com.

4. The teacher will go over the grammar homework in class.

If you wish to study the grammar exercises at any time, they are posted below.

Also posted are the questions for the reading exercises that are done in class, however you will need to refer to the actual coursebook for the texts.

Furthermore, each teacher may choose to use additional supplementary resources. Please contact the teacher to see if he has used any additional resources.

Here is the mandatory work that will be covered in class during each unit.

Most teenagers1 __get__ into trouble sometimes. But there's a big difference between 2 something wrong like staying out too late, and 3 a crime. The rise in teenage crime is a serious problem for our society. When a young person 4 the law and 5 away with it, they are likely to repeat the crime. Therefore, when a teenager 6 caught we must do everything to show them that crime is wrong. 7 them to prison is not the answer — they will only meet more experienced criminals there. Most of them don't have the money to 8 a fine. One good option is to 9 them on probation. This means they have a period of time when they must not 10 any more crimes. If they do, they will be sent to prison. But the best punishment is getting them to 1 community service — for example, picking up litter off the streets. This is the best way of teaching them that they have a responsibility to society.
