Learners and Parents/Guardians/Carers are welcome to request assessment catered to suit their requirements, whether it be to practice for an upcoming test elsewhere, or to complete a portfolio for homeschool or another learning platform online or in "real life."#### Class Experience

###### US Grade Preschool - 12

###### Beginner - Advanced Level

Each session will include 1 hour of English Language Arts and 1 hour of Mathematics, with a 15-minute break in between where the learner and teacher will both stay logged into the class. Learners are welcome to share their work/homework from other English Language Arts and Mathematics classes that they may be taking, either at a regular school or in another online program if they require help with it so that Pamela can explain it to them in another way that helps them to understand what is required to complete said task. The content being taught each week will be learner-driven. In the places around the world where I have had experience with homeschooling, the average amount of hours required where there are stipulated requirements is approximately 800 hours per year. This is usually recommended to be divided up over 180 days, which equates to approximately 4 to 5 hours per day. However, there are 365 usable days per year, which equates to just 2.5 hours per day. Personally, we aim for 2.5 hours per day of structured learning, and at least 1 hour per day of unstructured learning over 6 days per week. This equates to 15 hours of structured learning per week. This course on Outschool provides 2 hours towards this weekly total of structured learning, and completing related tasks outside of this course for this course should equate to approximately the same amount of hours again, providing that learners follow-up with their work. Therefore, a further 11 hours may need to be accounted for if you are in a jurisdiction that require a minimum amount of hours. You may need to schedule more than one section of this class to work towards this total if required. Even if your jurisdiction does not require set hours, this schedule is still useful as a guide to ensure that your learner is reaching their full potential. My jurisdiction does not require any minimum amount of hours of homeschooling, just set levels of achievement in skills and knowledge to be met. This guide to scheduling approximately 800 hours per year helps us to achieve said levels of achievement. In my homeschool, these circa 800 hours are divided in the following way: English Language Arts: 200 hours, which includes c. 30 hours of LOTE, which helps learners practice English through comparing and contrasting languages, without realising that they are practicing English! Mathematics: 200 hours Science: 160 hours - Biology: 40 hours - Chemistry: 40 hours - Physics: 40 hours - Earth and Space Science: 40 hours Social Science: 160 hours - Geography: 40 hours - History: 40 hours - Civics and Citizenship: 40 hours - Economics and Business: 40 hours Music: 10 hours + recreation Visual Arts: 10 hours + recreation Media Arts: 10 hours + recreation Dance: 10 hours + recreation Drama: 10 hours + recreation Design Technology: 10 hours + recreation Digital Technology: 10 hours + recreation Health and Physical Education: 10 hours + recreation The areas of skill and
