I am certified to teach grades 7-12 (middle and high school level) English/Language Arts in the state of Texas. I also hold a Bachelor's in Maritime Studies (anthropology), with minors in English and Archeology, and a Master's in Education. 
Homework Offered
If learners do not finish assignments in class, they may need to finish them for homework.
0 - 1 hours per week outside of class
Assessments Offered
Ongoing and informal assessment will occur during every meeting, through interactions and assignments. There will not be any formal tests.
Grades Offered
Grades and certificates provided on request. Grades will be in the form of A, B, C, D, F. I understand some families prefer grades, however I do not like to rely on them. Learning and growth is most important.
Students will need to split their computer screen or use another device such as a cell phone or tablet whenever we play a game. All literature that we read will be supplied by me. 
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
Parental guidance suggested. Learners will access a third party platform: Google Docs, gimkit.com/join, and/or Kahoot.it.  They do not need an account for Gimkit nor Kahoot. I will give them a code to join our specific game. They will need to join on a different internet tab than the tab they have Outschool or Zoom on, or can join on another device. 

For Google Docs, when we have writing assignments, each learner will be expected to provide me with a link to their Doc, where they will complete all of their work, so I can view it and provide feedback as needed.
