Class Experience

Japan Center for Michigan Universities, Level 2 Certification
Bachelor's, Minor in Japanese from Kalamazoo College
JLPT 4 Certification 
6-month study abroad in Japan
Continuous study since 6th grade 
Each week I will assign 1 - 3 worksheets geared towards building student's knowledge of kanji and reviewing concepts learned in class. It is highly recommended to review these concepts a little bit every day in order to maximize retention. 
For the best experience, students should have materials to take notes with, and the ability to print out worksheets from the Internet.
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
Assessment is conducted via Kahoot quizzes, participation in class, and the sophistication of the final presentation. There is no grade or credit offered. 
55 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
As with any other online class, my recommendation to parents is to check-in with students regarding what they learned in class. By way of having the student try and teach the concept to you, they will deepen their own mastery. Accountability in the area of reviewing a little bit each day will serve your learners as well.
