Class experience

Social classes satisfy BC’s curriculum/BC Ministry of Education for K–12 around communication studies through: acquiring and presenting information; focusing on intent and purpose in delivery; and connecting and engaging with others. 
I'm cool with awkward moments and silence.  Growth happens in discomfort.  I leave space for connection.  I do make sure everyone gets a turn to speak, keep things safe, and as much as possible, I try to stay out of the way.   

This is a learner driven class.  They are getting to know new people.  I often don't know what they are talking about, and don't plan on keeping up with trends.  I'm curious when I can be, but I know enough to back off if the group is connecting over something that I've never heard of.  They aren't here for another adult perspective.   

I see their strengths.  Every person has value to offer and I am passionate about making an open space for learners to share and connect.   
Please have a quiet space for your learner to participate.  
This is a facilitated, not an instructional class.  There is no content on "How to Make Friends".  This is a social space where learners are encouraged to share things that are important or interesting to them.  

This class is designed and delivered to support learners in achieving a high school diploma.   By engaging in communications studies using an online platform, learners can engage with audiences and cultures that they may not otherwise be able to access. The online classroom enhances the learner’s opportunities  to consider diverse perspectives, acquire information and present information for many purposes and audiences. The following are examples of competencies that are developed and supported in this classroom. 

Connecting and engaging with others
Students engage in informal and structured conversations in which they listen, contribute, develop understanding and relationships, and learn to consider diverse perspectives. This facet of communication is closely linked to the building and sustaining of relationships at home, at school, in the community, and through social media.
Focusing on intent and purpose

Students communicate with intention and purpose.
 They understand that communication can influence, entertain, teach, inspire, and help us make sense of the world and our experiences. They recognize the role the audience plays in constructing meaning, and they make strategic choices to help convey their messages and create their intended impact. They draw from a range of forms, media, and techniques, monitoring and adjusting their approaches and assessing their effects.

Acquiring and presenting information
Students communicate by receiving and presenting information. They inquire into topics of interest and topics related to their studies. They acquire information from a variety of sources, including people, print materials, and media; this may involve listening, viewing, or reading, and requires understanding of how to interpret information. They present information for many purposes and audiences, and their presentations often feature media and technology.
