How Outschool Works

Don't see a time that works for you?
This is the Outschool equivalent of a regular Geometry study hall, where peers and a competent tutor are together for an hour at a time, able to explain and encourage one another in the pursuit of Geometry. We meet once a week, though you can sign up for multiple sessions if you want more. The expectation is that students who join this study hall are enrolled in a Geometry course elsewhere, online or in person, and need a bit more support. Some students benefit purely from setting...
Students are expected to be taking Geometry somewhere else (or here on Outschool), and this Study Hall is intended to support that. Participation in Geometry Study Hall should improve a student's performance in their Geometry course.
As a Study Hall, there is no specific homework other than what is assigned by your instructor. Occasionally, videos or other teaching aids may be shared, but viewing them is not mandatory. Based on my experiences with the original Algebra Study Hall, students who submit questions or even general concepts tend to get more out of this experience than those who don't. Some students post images or pdfs of homework in the group forum, while others read problems to the group live. However you ask questions is far less important than THAT you ask questions!
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
The hope is that participation in Geometry Study Hall will support a student in their other Geometry class.
1 hour per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
Geometry teaches logical thinking skills that can be quite troublesome for the unprepared parent. Proving something, geometrically, trains the brain for more abstract argumentation.
If I'm struggling to explain a topic, I often refer to Khan Academy videos, or material available via YouTube.
