Homework Same as always Read as fluently as you can and write the assignment. Take any recorded dictation you may have from previous lessons or this current lesson (never make it too long, just choose from what you have of previous assignment and the entire current assignment--or whatever you have on hand). Transcribe (type up) your own shorthand from what you wrote and the recorded dictation. .
