How does a "Flex" course work?

No scheduled live video chats
Discussions via classroom forum and private messages with the teacher
Great if your learner prefers independent pacing or is uncomfortable with live video chat

Description

Class Experience

Goals for science units include the following process and concept goals in addition to essential understandings of specific content areas:
1) To understand the concept of systems or change
2) To understand and apply the basic principles of experimental design and investigation, and
3) To develop reasoning skills with real-world applications to science
Mrs. Collins is a certified teacher in science, and gifted in-field studies. She also has over 22 years of experience. If you need to see a copy of her gifted certification, please request it for your program.
Students will be asked to recreate labs at home, and continue inquiry based learning techniques.

In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
At the end of the 6 weeks, an overall final assessment will be given. The assessment is optional, but a link will be provided to a Quizlet teacher created assessment. 
No live meetings, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
Parents, students will be using Flipgrid and Loom during this course. 
Loom is where I store my video recordings, so students will be given a personalized safe link. 
Flipgrid is what the class uses to share or show/tell projects. Students will be given a personal private link to the teacher's Flipgrid website to show labs (optional). 

Parents, I teach for the public school system and teach on Outschool. I make sure that my classes have labels on all of the task, example: Week 1, Task 1     Week 1, Task 2   
they are clearly labeled to help students not get lost and to know what order to complete the task. Students will be given a new topic each week, labs to try at home, and summary videos to watch to learn more.
