Students will gain an understanding of the U.S. Constitution. They will learn what each section means and why it matters.
Students will be presented with a document at the beginning of class which will contain the note-taking pages for each session that will be used as the basis for the final project. They will need to have these pages printed either all up front or as needed for each class session. Students will need to provide a way to organize their papers such as a 3-pronged folder or a 3-ring binder. Students will need access to a copy of the U.S. Constitution for use during class. This can be purchased from Amazon at https://www.amazon.com/Constitution-United-Delegates-Constitutional-Convention/dp/0880801441/ref=sr_1_3?keywords=pocket+constitution&qid=1581450374&sr=8-3 or may be found online at https://constitutionus.com/
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
Students will be informally assessed by their level of involvement in class discussions. Each week, they will also be asked to complete a written assignment during class which will result in a final project reflecting their understanding of the material presented throughout the course. A letter grade will not be given, but parents or students are welcome to request a certificate of completion for the course.
55 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
