How does a "Multi-Day" course work?

Meets multiple times at scheduled times
Live video chats, recorded and monitored for safety and quality
Discussions via classroom forum and private messages with the teacher
Great for engaging projects and interacting with diverse classmates from other states and countries

Description

Class Experience

Class Structure

All classes will be small, personal and interactive.   They will be structured, conversational and student-centered with the following format:

1.  Greetings and conversation 
2.  Clarifications needed for previous concepts.
3.  Quick multiplication fact fluency checks are included in all of my courses.  It is so crucial.

Followed by:

4.  The weekly Topic selected from the Mathematical Strand, "Geomtery" will be introduced and explored. This 3 week course is foundational work, developing understanding of geometric concepts.

Teaching Style

Teacher discussion with lots of guided practice, along with group discussion, which will include games, video clips and an abundance of interaction and practice on my interactive math website will be utilized. Instruction will be nurturing and supportive.  My teaching style is guided by this motto: "Learning takes place over Time. It's all about the Effort!" We will learn to say this together at the beginning and ending of each class.  Remember, parents, productive struggle is an important part of learning.  It's ok when students do. It's a valuable part of the learning process.
Necessary homework will be assigned weekly and I will monitor students between classes, and even communicate with them through the program itself while they are working.  I will designate mid-weekly class check-ins.  Generally speaking, homework that is assigned on a Monday, for example, would not be due until the following Monday.  Assignments will be differentiated, and there are always ways to remediate, practice grade level concepts, or move ahead.  Assignments will be given for the upcoming week, WHICH SHOULD BE COMPLETED BY THE NEXT CLASS SESSION, are necessary for success in this course.  Class will dismiss after clarification of any points that may be needed.
Paper and pencil is required, of course, and a device to access a student's online subscription (math homework) is needed. Subscriptions for IXL will be PROVIDED BY ME and included when students enroll with no cost to parents. Students will have access to their IXL subscriptions as long as they are enrolled in my classes that are offered and are actively participating in them. There are NO books, worksheets, etc. needed; no paperwork to be kept. Simple, Neat and Mobile! Take your class with you anywhere you want. There will be a cap size of 6 students per class creating an ideal learning environment. There are continuous, sequential math courses offered by "Creative, Interactive Math...Together, We Can Do This!" 3rd Grade, PARTS A,B,C,D AND E. These courses could easily provide all of the mathematical training needed for families who home school, as well as provide help and support in traditional settings.
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
The student will be assessed by the completion of their assigned online work.  Grading is instantaneous and visible by the teacher, as well as by the parents. Missed problems will be explained instantaneously via the program.  I can also monitor student work remotely as they work and offer suggestions in real time.  This aspect does not require video conferencing.  It is done through my digital math platform, a simply awesome feature. That time would be arranged via email and a determined time to watch the student work could be established. There will be no waiting from class to class to see progress. Misconceptions that may result will provide teacher/student dialog in the next class.  Again, the classwork will be differentiated.  Students who need more time on a concept will receive it. Those who need challenge can move ahead if desired.  I will monitor all aspects of success and struggle and parents will be able to see their student's progress as well.  Students will be required to strive for an 80% on each learning target that has been taught and then assigned.  This demonstrates a baseline of mastery of the concept for the teacher. If desired, students can move beyond 80% as the questions often become more rigorous.  A diagnostic aspect of my program will allow me to see areas of strength and weakness and communicate with parents regarding specific points of need or challenge.
1 hour per week in class, and an estimated 2 - 4 hours per week outside of class.
