ACCOUNTABILITY

A higher level of accountability is incorporated into the course.  To maintain enrollment, students must follow through on weekly assignments.  A vital component of the course grade evaluation is following instructions and keeping work organized.  It begins at the required Student & Parent Orientation.  Our orientation is one week prior to classes starting.  Our orientation time is 2.5 hours and is typically held on the same day and at the same location as classes are scheduled.  This will be confirmed and a reminder sent.

Schoology is the platform used for assignments and communication between the teacher and student, so access to a computer and printer are essential to this class. 

Looking forward to our exciting adventure as we do this together!

TIME COMMITMENT: This course is narrative in nature and follows the Charlotte Mason approach, which includes narrative and copy work to be done at home. 

There will be aspects of the curriculum that are part of our course and others that are available as options to enhance and deepen your experience with the topics covered. 

Each student may have different time commitments needed to complete the work, based on their particular skill set.  It generally takes six weeks to fall into a routine and determine the time allotment needed for your student to do their best in this course​.  This is one of the many things addressed at our Orientation.

DESCRIPTION

Students begin by delving into the basic building blocks of creation - atoms and molecules, and then journey through simple chemicals, the laws of motion, and energy in its many forms, before discovering concepts of electricity and magnetism.  All the while, God will be glorified as the Master Designer of all that they are discovering about the world and how it works. 

This course includes notebooking!  The separate notebooking journal is required.  It features:  Templates for completing the notebooking activities; Review questions for each lesson, which can be answered orally or in writing as a written narration; Scripture copywork, with both print and cursive practice; "More to Explore" ideas for each lesson; Full-color, lapbook-style "Miniature Books"; and Final review questions.  


Schoology is the platform used for assignments and communication between the teacher and student, so access to a computer and printer are essential to this class.​

Students are given an outline of course work required to complete as school work, which includes the student correcting and grading work that is turned in for review.  Participation in an approved science fair is optional for additional credit.  Another vital component is the student’s notebook where all of the course work is to be filed weekly. 

Notebooks are an integral part of the course.

required STUDENT & PARENT orientation


There is a required Student & Parent Orientation two weeks prior to class beginning.  

  • HIS campus:  Details are still being worked out, since this is a Monday class and we start a week earlier than the other classes.  When finalized it will be posted here & emailed to registered families.
  • TTC campus:  The specific date is on the calendar on the Registration Packet.  Please mark your calendars accordingly and get the date set aside for your family.  For this campus it takes the place of the “TTC Back to School” that is one week prior to classes beginning.  
  • BOTH campuses:  A reminder will be sent out in August.  

It is typically held at the same time the class is scheduled and typically same location.  

The orientation is to overview what is required for the year & to enable students to get their first assignment as well as meet their fellow lab students & set up their notebooks prior to class beginning. 

This critical meeting establishes the student’s school year & the parents’ role in it.
