I am a public school teacher who has previously taught Language Arts in a middle school setting and I am currently teaching English Language Arts in a high school setting. The standards in high school build off those found in middle school; therefore, I am familiar with the national requirements at both levels.
The ONLY way students will be successful in this class is if they complete all assigned readings and work prior to each class meeting.  Additionally, to keep up with timely feedback on writing assignments and grading, students MUST complete all assigned work by the end of the school week. (see "Weekly Assignment Sheet")

Each week, students will complete readings, have discussions with peers, and complete assignments, and work on group projects. Please make sure your student has four or more hours each week to work on this course.

Limited live meetings.
An estimated 5+ hours per week outside of class.
Students MUST have a gmail/email account. It is extremely helpful to me if students have a gmail email account.  This type of email account works the best when sharing documents with students and when students collaborate on group projects. Google email accounts are free so if your student does not have a google email account, please sign them up for one prior to our first class meeting.

In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class utilizes  Google Email/Drive, Google Classroom, Google docs and slides, Youtube, Kahoot!, and Quizlet.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
Students will be assessed through quizzes, exams, and short answer responses that are aligned to the national standards. Each student will have access to google classroom for assignments and for grade progression.
1 hour 30 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 4+ hours per week outside of class.
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses Google Email/Drive, Youtube, Kahoot!, and Quizlet.

Just like I do in my public teaching classroom, I pull reading texts from a wide variety of sources and then I add my own experience to the text and assignments and then I have the students engage in with the content through discussions, group projects, and individual presentations.
