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

My entire career has been spent managing money of companies (big and small) and volunteering to help people with budget creation and management for the last 20 years.  I speak often about children and money; and have a passion for ensuring the next generation is better prepared for their financial life than generations prior. 
Students will have homework each week.  This can range from researching careers or life choices (housing, cars, etc.) to creating plans for their life to "shopping" (which can be done virtually).  These will always tie back to the big picture of their life as a young adult and contribute to their overall operating budget.
BASIC calculator (should be available during class) Single subject notebook (70-100 pages) or 20-40 pages of lined paper for note-taking Writing utensil Access to the internet (home or library) intermittently to look up information (not during class time)
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
50 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
Parents should know that the career students choose to work through during the course will teach them a lot about what they think life will be like with their chosen career.  The goal is for the students to see the impact of decisions.  Sometimes, they learn through this course that the path they desire comes with some life impacts they won't enjoy!  I ask that parents be open-minded about their students choices during the course. 

Parents should be open to hearing information on topics that they may or may not have been exposed to in their financial life. I am always available by e-mail to clarify anything that may sound "off" coming from your student--but I HEAVILY encourage families to discuss course topics at home once they are covered in class!
Students will be given links to various online resources to investigate.
