Also, my little bunch are now mostly junior-high, where life is busy, and "orders" can meet with resistance, particularly orders to girls from Mom. I write assignments in spiral-bounds and talk about what & how to practice, but am thinking I need to do something more to encourage practice, and to help them develop effective & satisfying habits. I'm thinking of asking for the "lesson time times five" weekly plan, but feel I should do something more than those two strategies. What's your plan? When it doesn't happen, what do you do? Have you let students go for not practicing enough? (Surely a tough question when this is grocery money.) Sue
