This class is taught in English.
Independent work done outside of class is an important and required part of this course and assigned after each meeting. As this course helps students gain insight into themselves within the context of preparing for college, most assignments will include personal surveys and readings. Independent work is meant to be purposeful, thought-provoking, and add personal value to the class experience while taking up minimal time. Each assignment is required, and the end result of that assignment (either survey results or knowledge) is required to discuss and learn the topic in the following class.
On the first day of class, students will be given a packet of printable worksheets that must be printed out by the 2nd class. All worksheets for all sessions will be given on the first day of class for your printing convenience. Students will also need a pen/pencil at each class starting with class 2.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
There are no formal grades in this class.
1 hour 50 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
This class will expose students to many different aspects and ideas on college as well as a variety of colleges, which may include public, private (religious and non-religious), community, and technical colleges. As many private schools often have a religious affiliation or background, this may be pointed out when discussing a private school in a purely informational manner. Any colleges or universities that are discussed in class are for informational and eductational purposes only. A college's inclusion in a class discussion does not constitute any endorsement by the teacher. As this is a group class, students are encouraged to share their thoughts and ideas on college as well as respect those shared from other students, even if they are different. There are many ways to 'do college,' and all ways are valid.
