What to Expect
Teachers are responsible for holding weekly online class meetings that review the concepts presented in the lessons (which students download and review prior to class meetings).
Throughout the week, teachers edit student work. Students must type all work in Word (or equivalent) in MLA page format. They email their assignments to the instructor, and the instructor provides edits and help on their paper, sends it back to the student, who does the revisions, then returns to the instructor. Students have work each day, whether it is an assignment or edits on the assignment. Many times, students need more than one round of edits.
Teacher do not "grade" work; our philosophy is mastery, so we work with the student on the assignment until it is the best it can be.
