How much writing in a history class? science class?

Recommended Posts



How much writing would you consider adequate for a history class? For example, Big History Project, has several writing assignments and some projects. What would you consider adequate for a high school level class?


Same for science, how many labs would be appropriate? And how much in terms of writing?


Thanks. I'd love to hear advice or being directed to other threads if this has been discussed before.

Science: depends on the science. No writing at all in physics or chemistry (besides lab reports) - for those subjects they should do problem sets.As

for labs: there is no fixed number. Quality is more important than quantity. An in dept data and error analysis for a few labs beats doing a large number of superficial demonstration like labs.
