Participants will complete twenty lessons in sequence.
Each lesson includes a video and an assigned Notebook activity to give practice with some of the skills demonstrated in the video. The completed Notebook activity will be uploaded for grading.
The final project for this course is to create a Notebook lesson with 10 pages using some of the skills learned in the course.
Requirements for passing the course or a letter grade is based on points earned for participant in lessons, completion of lesson assignments, and completion of the final project.
The total possible points = 150
Course Participation = 30 Points (1.5 points for each lesson)
Lesson Assignments = 60 points (3 points for each lesson)
Final Project = 60 points
Points earned will be divided by the total for a percentage to determine the final grade for the course:
A = 90%-100% 135-150 total points
B = 80%-89% 120-134 total points
C = 70%-79% 105-119 total points
D = 60%-69% 90-104 total points
F = 0%-59% 0-89 points
Pass/Fail: At least 90 points; participate in all lessons + complete all assignments or complete the final project
