How does a "Multi-Day" course work?

Meets multiple times at scheduled times
Live video chats, recorded and monitored for safety and quality
Discussions via classroom forum and private messages with the teacher
Great for engaging projects and interacting with diverse classmates from other states and countries

Description

Class Experience

At the end of this Multi-Day class, learners will possess the skills to:

LESSON 1: EARLY ATOMIC THEORY
1. State the postulates of Dalton’s atomic theory
2. Use postulates of Dalton’s atomic theory to explain the laws of definite and multiple proportions

LESSON 2: EVOLVING ATOM THEORY
1. Outline milestones in the development of modern atomic theory
2. Summarize and interpret the results of the experiments of Thomson, Millikan, and Rutherford
3. Describe the three subatomic particles that compose atoms
4. Define isotopes and give examples for several elements

LESSON 3: RUTHERFORD GOLD FOIL LAB
1. Demonstrate the Scientific Method by making predictions, performing an experiment, recording observations, analyzing results, and forming conclusions 
I have a bachelor’s degree in science in education as well as 1 year of formal teaching experience.
Learners will be provided with a Unit Handout that includes definitions discussed during the live lesson and additional practice problems. Learners are encouraged to complete the practice problems before the following lesson and utilize the classroom chat to ask questions.
1. A notebook and pencil for note taking 2. Calculator 3. Unit 2.1 Handout (Provided)
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
Learners will be informally assessed through their ability to guide me through various examples and activities during the live lessons.
Activities include:
LESSON 3: Phet Simulation will be used to complete the Rutherford Gold Foil Lab. Two Google Forms will also be used as lab report forms.
2 hours per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
Class Activities: This class offers a variety of activities to check knowledge and provide practice for learners. The following activities do not require accounts or personal information from your learner. Below is a list of the activities and their purpose:

LESSON 3: Phet Simulation will be used to complete the Rutherford Gold Foil Lab. Two Google Forms will also be used as lab report forms. 

Please reach out to me if you have any questions or concerns.

SCHEDULING: If you don’t see a section that works for you or your learner, please feel free to message me using the message button on this page. I will be more than happy to find a time that works for everyone and though these classes are designed with a small group in mind,  I do not mind hosting individual classes.
