Description

Class Experience

Homework will be assigned based on the discussion of topics for a class.  Generally speaking, homework that is assigned on a Monday, for example, would not be due until the following Monday.   With my oversight, and student/teacher dialogue, the student will be prepared to move forward independently for the assigned homework for the week.  I will monitor student work over the course of the week to ensure that mastery is taking place, or to determine trouble spots.  Points of confusion or clarification would be addressed in the next class,  as needed. HOMEWORK COMPLETION is imperative for this course.  Without practice, the student will most likely not move forward with comprehension making subsequent skills taught difficult to grasp. 
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, if arranged.  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.  However, this can be flexible when circumstances require it. Assignments will be differentiated, and there are always ways to remediate, practice grade level concepts, or move ahead.
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 7-8 students per class creating an ideal learning environment. There will be continuous, sequential math courses offered by "A Creative, Interactive Math Journey...Together, We Can Do This!". Again, these courses could easily provide all of the mathematical training needed for families who homeschool, 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.
45 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 2 - 4 hours per week outside of class.
