Jump to: navigation, search

The information on this page is a general outline of the tasks and activities that are assigned throughout the educational program. Each on of the days on this list will have its own page that gives an in depth description of the day's activities. This outline consists of three parts: the day number, details of the day's activities, and a few questions to ponder. Each section is highlighted by a different color of text. There are a few changes that will be made to this outline. Primarily there will be an educational reading everyday of the program, along with an extra reading as well. Some of the days do not have a reading, but that is only because the outline is not yet finished. If you know of a reading that would be good for a specific day, feel free to add it to the outline, after you check and see if it is already included in the outline.
