Homework Offered
PARENTAL DISCRETION: ~ Homework is readily available for all of my lessons. ~ Learners are encouraged to independently complete any questions not completed during the live ZOOM session. ~ Live feedback is very valuable. Therefore, feedback for completed homework can be provided in the forthcoming session.
Assessments Offered
Informal and Formal: ~ I use casual, informal assessments during the 45-minute session. Plus, the reading comprehension questions found in the text provide a traditional and more formal approach to assessing my learners. I balance the two formats to determine the needs of the learner.
Grades Offered
Learners should have easy access to digital or tangible note paper.
N/A
