Description

Class Experience

Learners will follow an individualized plan for how to capture concepts, ideas, analysis, and details from readings, lectures, videos, and other media, on their own.  Their observations will be captured into notes as well as in self-study guides that can be useful in a variety of academic situations.  
From that point on they will learn how to synthesize their analysis and notes in various forms. By the end of the class, they should be able to take any college course in the humanties and pass it with a straight 'A' based on knowing how to study during the semester and exam period. 
Leeyanne Moore has taught rhetoric to college students since 2007. She has also led study skills seminars at Smith College's Jacobsen Center for Learning.  For twenty-five years she's been working with children and teens, helping to motivate them to improve their writing skills via creative writing. Since 2019 she has been teaching classes on Outschool.com.
Each week students will be given an assignment, along with a due date, and a set of expectations for the assignment. 
Sometimes we'll use a topic the learner is already studying, or a topic they already enjoy and want to learn more about.
We will work together to go over the academic study skills needed in addressing the assignment and practice them first before the learner will need to conclude the assignment on their own time. 
FOR EXAMPLE:  
1) Learner is assigned to read three chapters in a book, then read over the chapter again, this time annotating the chapters to help retain important elements of the story and the learner's reactions. 
2) While how to annotate readings will be taught in class and the learner can begin the assignment during the session, the learner will be expected to finish the assignment as homework. 
Spiral note books, pens, paper, stickies, mini-film stickies.
Parent/instructor conversations will happen every few weeks to make sure the learner is mastering the material using the academic study tools provided and that progress is swift and efficient. If there are any roadblocks to learning, those will be discussed with an eye to problemsolving.
55 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 2 - 4 hours per week outside of class.
The content used in readings, etc, for the tutoring session are not fixed. Readings, videos, and other content the learner will use while practicing academic skills will be the result of collaboration between learner, parent, and instructor.
