Jeffrey Trail Coursework Compact
Jeffrey Trail believes all coursework should be meaningful and supported by teacher direction. We refer to "coursework" as any assignment that a teacher initiates with students that may be completed during class or at home. We strive to avoid "homework" that traditionally lends itself to be independent assignments that are not begun in class or follow the natural flow of instruction.
