Cassondra Shields (Ms. Cassie):

Cassondra has been an ESL (English as a second language) teacher for four years to the age groups 3-15. She graduated from the Honor's Program at The University of Nevada, Reno with a research thesis on adolescent conduct disorder attributes and how those attributes were statistically represented in adult incarceration and recidivism rates based on longitudinal study results. In order to conduct this type of research, Cassondra studied behavior, neurology, and psychology of children for several years as well as additional English and writing courses to write about this type of research. She has brought her expertise on child development and learning behaviors to Outschool as the curriculum developer for Shields Scholars. Cassondra is also a homeschool mom to her own children.

NearPod includes games relevant to the lesson to keep learners engaged the entire time since there is something for them to be focusing on and physically doing every few minutes. This can include little quizzes, matching, drag & drop, drawing, 3D, virtual reality, etc. NearPod is necessary for your learner to participate in addition to Zoom. If available, two devices is ideal for these classes. Most of my students like to have Zoom up on one device and NearPod on a touch device such as a tablet, iPad, or smartphone to make clicking on answers easy for little fingers. However, two separate devices is NOT necessary to participate if not available! 鈼忊棌鈼忊棌鈼忊棌鈼忊棌鈼忊棌鈼忊棌鈼忊棌鈼忊棌鈼忊棌鈼忊棌鈼忊棌鈼忊棌鈼忊棌鈼忊棌鈼忊棌鈼忊棌鈼忊棌鈼忊棌鈼忊棌鈼忊棌鈼忊棌鈼忊棌鈼忊棌鈼忊棌鈼忊棌鈼忊棌鈼忊棌鈼忊棌 PLEASE FOLLOW THESE DIRECTIONS Check our classroom posts!

Please stay close during class in case they need assistance. You can also message us at any time with questions! We are happy to answer. :)
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
There will be no formal assessment.
40 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
Parental guidance is heavily required for this class for safety reasons!

Because of the age group (4-8) parents will be needed to assist learners. Some recipes call for boiling water, measuring, and there is a decent amount of preparation. 
This is NOT a class that your learner can take unsupervised if they are going to conduct the experiments. Should a child be unsupervised while doing the experiment, it is up to my discretion to withdraw them from the class.

Please remember that per Outschool policy, only the enrolled learner can be on camera, but parents can absolutely help their child out in the background or off to the side of the Zoom screen.
www.nearpod.com or the NearPod application on a tablet/phone will be used.
The link and code to the lesson content will be updated in the classroom page. 

**You do NOT need to create a NearPod account to join the lesson.
