Will there be homework? If a student does not finish his or her work during that day’s lesson, the student will be expected to finish it prior to the next class lesson. This class does meet once a week for 8 weeks and it is expected for each student to keep up with the lessons and any work in the lesson. With this said, this is a basic introductory course and most students should be able to follow along at the pace set.
MATERIALS NEEDED FOR CLASS: -Desktop or Laptop computer -Internet access -Email account to create a WordPress account (Please do not create a WordPress account before class. There are steps I need students to take during the set up process.) -Interest to share your own interests and voices with others -A notebook and pen/pencil may be helpful for note taking
55 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
