• **Each unit is divided into two sections (chapters). Generally, we spend about 10-12 days on a section and follow it with a section quiz. That time spent is subject to change based on student needs. There is a vocab theme for each unit, a country to study for each unit, and 2-4 “big ideas” from each chapter.**
     
    Upon your completion of each unit you will know the following information:
