How Outschool Works

*This class is the first half of my "Let's Get It Write" Semester class. It is recommended that students take part 1, then part 2 to be successful.* In this 6-week class, reluctant and overwhelmed writers will learn how to break assignments down into manageable chunks. This is such an important skill to learn so that the "brain chaos" doesn't take over, a skill used across many facets of life. I will be guiding writers through every step of the way. While our class topics will be the same,...
Learners will leave the class having a firm grasp of how to implement the writing process to break down assignments and avoid overwhelm.
I am a homeschooling mom of five kids, ranging in age from ten to nineteen. We are diving into our 6th year of homeschool and we love it. I have a passion for both education and creativity and I love combining the two whenever I can. When I'm not teaching (my kids or someone else's), I run a business based purely on creativity and art. Traveling (and 8 years of formal classes) gave me a handle on the Spanish language. I have a background in general education from 19 years of combined experience teaching in public and charter school settings, as well as tutoring one on one, ESL, and running various camps and activities. My experience ranges from childcare (infant) age all the way through high school age and includes work with neurodiverse and special needs students, as well as students with mental health issues. I have a passion for, and educational background in Graphic Art/Design, however, my degrees are AA in Liberal Studies and a BA in General Studies with a concentration in Psychology. I am also TESOL certified.
Homework will be assigned each week so that students can review and practice the skills that were learned in that week's class. This homework should take approximately 15-20 minutes per day, spread over the week. Since we are learning to break down assignments, I would like students to take breaks at various points during the writing process. If students have questions regarding the homework, I encourage them to post in our classroom or message me directly, so that I can provide an explanation. I like my students to know that I am reachable through the platform outside of our scheduled class time.
While I will offer feedback on homework, I do not provide letter grades. I will provide overall feedback and a certificate of completion upon request.
50 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
Students will be using Google docs and Google drive during this class. While these are Outschool-approved resources, parents should know that students will need their own (free) account. Students should NOT share their Google information, we will share work through direct links. These links will only be sent to me, not to other students. Any peer editing and feedback will be anonymous and routed through me. Please be advised: -All recommendations and assessments made during these classes are my own and based on my own experience and education. They are not reflective of Outschool, as I am an independent contractor.
