There is a class outline provided that students can download and use to take notes or just follow along. There will also be handouts posted that students can print out to follow along with strategies taught at the end of the class. The handouts will be shown on "Share Screen" in class if you're unable to print them out.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
Informal assessment will take place throughout the lesson by asking students if they have questions.  If students seem very talkative/engaged, we'll share the ways in which they can apply the strategies after the class. Due to the nature of this class, great care will be taken to support students in engaging to the level they feel comfortable with. No one will be put on the spot or "forced" to answer.
40 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
This is a fact-based course.  I don't anticipate sensitive topics being discussed.  In the event a student would bring up a personal anxiety related issue, I will recognize the feeling/comment (i.e. "That can be really difficult") and respond, "That's important information to share with a trusted adult in a private/one-on-one setting.  For now, let's talk about...". This has been a successful strategy in previous fact-based courses to address any sensitive topics that may come up. I don't believe parental guidance is required. However, parents know best if their child will more comfortable with them by their side.  The fact-based content of this course doesn't require a parent, but the nature/personality of the specific learner may.
