I received my undergraduate degree in the Japanese language, culture, and history. I also earned my Master's degree in K-12 education. I studied abroad at Nihon University in Tokyo as well as worked as an English teacher in Niigata, Japan. I was able to see what I learned firsthand.
Students will be given worksheets to print out after the class to reinforce their learning. Because this class meets once, this is optional and they have the choice to send their homework to me to look over. They will get a vocabulary list that goes over everything they have studied
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
I do not routinely give an assessment at the end of the class. However, if a student or parent would like an assessment, they may request one by emailing me.
1 hour per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
