Students will be given worksheets to print out after the class to reinforce their learning. Because this class meets weekly, this is optional. The student has the choice to send their homework to me to look over if they want to. They will get a vocabulary list that goes over everything they have studied.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
I do not routinely give an assessment at the end of the class. However, if a student or parent would like an assessment, they may request one by emailing me.
1 hour per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
