Class Experience

I have a Juris Doctor from the S.J. Quinney College of Law, University of Utah; a Master of Arts in Secondary Education from the University of Phoenix; and a Bachelor of Arts in English from Brigham Young University. I taught high school English for eight years (with endorsements in English and Reading), and I currently teach ESL online. I am also a former prosecuting attorney, and I currently practice law in several different areas. 
For homework, students will write a five-paragraph persuasive essay from a choice of essay prompts. The students will have 72 hours after Class #3 to submit it via the Outschool Classroom (in either a PDF or a Google Docs link) in order to receive detailed teacher feedback. 
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
50 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
Some classes will use Nearpod to complete writing assignments and/or review class materials, but Nearpod does not require students to create an account. Students will be asked to enter their first name only when entering the website so that assignments can be tracked by the teacher (content remains anonymous to other students). 

One option for submitting the final essay is to use Google Docs. Google Docs does require an email to use its services; however, the link that the student provides to the teacher does not share any personal information (it only gives access to the essay for the teacher to review and add feedback). No other students will have access to this essay link as long as it is sent directly to the teacher (and not posted on the public classroom page). 

The other option to submit the final essay is to send a PDF through Adobe Acrobat. This is a free program that does not require any registration or personal information.
