Class Experience

Your students will learn how to have an academic discussion in an online format. This format is often used by schools that use blended learning. This will also help your student learn basic researching skills and how to write brief papers. 
I have taught this subject to my younger siblings, parents, and my older sister. It can be done in a sensitive manner and I will handle it as carefully as I can. 
The homework assigned will be discussion posts, reading, and researching. The reading will depend on the student and how much information they can find to make paragraphs. The homework could take anywhere from 30 minutes to 2 hours. Every week a discussion thread will be posted for the students to discuss what they've learned. 
You should not need any supplies to complete this class. Any supplies will be free. 
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
The student is assessed by a written report/informal assessment with an approximate grade based on participation and homework. 
No live meetings, and an estimated 2 - 4 hours per week outside of class.
Discussion about Oralism (forcing children to speak) and about some of the consequences that were given if they couldn't. Ableism and Audism may also be discussed.
