For me it depends on the grade level. I would use them at any grade level but it would also depend on the kind of school. I've worked in a school where 90% of the kids studied privately. In that case they didn't even do weekly lessons and did not use practice sheets at the High School level. In a majority of cases I would use them though. They end up being about being 50% of the grade or right around there. I would require once a week and depending on the kind of distrct I am in it would vary on how much time a week I would require my students to practce.
