********************************************************************************************** Please read this before selecting this class. We use multiple video examples and then we test each concept by quizzing the students. Students in this age category are not as willing to engage verbally and this model works best and most efficiently to actually teach the concepts in the lesson curriculum and inspire students to communicate. Before enrolling, please consider if this model is a good fit...

I have been teaching college/university and law school students since 2005 in the areas of law, political science/government, and criminal justice. I have the ability to present these topics in an age appropriate manner to students from age 11 to 18. In addition, I have 15 years of law practice and subject matter expertise in the material presented. I have first-hand knowledge and expertise in the subject matter and in the area of critical reading, analysis and synthesis. The material is designed to develop analysis skills that will advance students' critical thinking and effective problem-solving abilities.
All work will take place during class but students are encouraged to review course materials (Powerpoints and/or text excerpts that may be provided) prior to class so that students may be prepared for the following in-class activities: - quizzes during class using Kahoot.com - video examples provided during class - slide show presentations presented during class
This is a summary of the full listing of class requirements. Please read the full listing upon enrollment to ensure that the class is good fit for your student. *** [[ Please do not allow the student to attempt to take the class while in bed or otherwise laying and/or moving throughout the home while the class is in progress. ]] *** Virtual backgrounds are not allowed as they are a distraction and students use them to get around the requirement that they please not take the class in bed. *** We request that the student use a wired internet source plugged into the internet router instead of WIFI – constant blinking of the Internet and students dropping in and out of the class is disruptive. In addition, it is difficult to communicate with the student when the WIFI is intermittently unstable, as it makes it difficult to understand what the student is saying ((It is best if students can test this technology at least 1 day prior to starting the class.)) *** Participation in-person with continuously enabled video/audio each day of the class is mandatory for (all) students. [This is not a video play-back class]. The class is delivered in real time only. *** Please do not allow the student to attempt to project their video participation in class using an ipad; phone; facetime or other mobile device. *** The student (must) use a desktop computer or laptop sitting securely on a desk or table so that the camera is stabilized at all times throughout the class. Constant movement of the screen or video camera that is used to project the student’s video into the classroom is very disruptive during the class. ***For optimal performance, students should use headphones with a good microphone so that we can communicate efficiently throughout the course. ((It is best if students can test this technology at least 1 day prior to starting the class.)) -- All Course Resources and activities are provided before and/or during class on shared screen -- INCLUGING: 1) Course Videos 2) Course Powerpoints (student downloadable copies provided) 3) Course quizzes (So that the student can participate in anonymous class polling and see other students' answers to the questions, before the initial class, students should navigate to socrative.com and download the app (if the student will be using a smart phone or pad device.
