Learners will have homework assigned after most classes. Homework will consist of writing keyword outlines and paragraphs. Students can turn in their written assignments and receive feedback. Homework can be turned in using the "teacher" tab in the Outschool classroom. Since this is an introductory course, homework is not required to be turned in, although learners may find the feedback helpful.
