Subject: Best implementation of Accelerated Math

	This is my first year teaching and I am working in a rural school
that has had the Accelerated Math program for the last two years. ALL
of the kids hate it, but I am required by my contract to use the
program. I know very little about it, but I do know that the teacher I
replaced was not implementing it the right way. I've read the
discussion and I see that most of the kids like it, but not here. I
found out that the previous teacher required completion of two
objectives every week- on the student's own time. I don't believe
there is ANY motivation for the student to do the work then. She also
assigned 30+ homework problems every night and very few kids did their
homework. So how do I add in AM without losing a TON of lesson time
and not having them do it all on their own? Help! We have approx. 47
min classes (some 45, some 50). Please give suggestions!!!

Thanks in advance!
