I have taught these types of notes all five years of my professional career and teach several middle school through high school courses and note-taking courses on Outschool. I have Advanced Placement and AVID training, both of which work closely with effective note-taking and close-reading to help students with their understanding of material.
By nature of a flex class, students will be completing all work outside of live meetings.
Each week, students will be submitting their work through the classroom. This can be done through scanning of hand-written work or through digital copies. I am a firm believer in choice in the classroom and always want to leave this open for students!
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
Each week, students will turn in samples of their work through the classroom as part of their interactions with not only the teacher but with their classmates!
No live meetings, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
