North Star Geography - Middle School - Part 1 - 2022-23 Temporary Course

North Star Geography - Middle School - First Half of Book  (Grades 6-8)

This course is built and ready to go.  We have a volunteer teacher for this class, but are finalizing details about class time, etc.  We cannot yet give the times for the class and it is not yet enrolling.

Live classes meet in an online classroom and provide direct interaction between the teacher and other students for lecture, discussion, and review games.  If you are not able to attend the class live, we are providing the option to enroll in live classes to watch the recordings instead.

Teaching

We have a teacher to teach this course.  Please consider volunteering to teach other courses so we can offer as many options to our students as possible.

Tentative Course Schedule (Subject to Change)

Class Length:  32 Weeks plus Intro week

Meets:  1 hour class, one time per week (Teachers choose time, although it must fit within our overall master schedule.  Limited classes are allowed in each time slot.  Earliest teachers to commit to teaching get first choice.)

Time:  To be determined.  Teacher is reviewing schedule.

North Star Geography - Middle School - Part 1 - First Half of Book

This class will meet once a week for the school year and cover the first half of the book. 

We are calling this Middle School level, but senior high students could take it if they want to take a slower pace. 

We are offering a High School class as a separate class that will meet twice a week and cover the whole book.  There is also a Part 2 Middle School for students that took the first half of the book last year.  


NOTE ABOUT GRADING: 

Projects and additional assignments must be graded by parents.  Each student must have a parent enrolling using a separate parent account.  Parents will have access to a grading password through their parent account to submit grades to the grade book for the parent graded assignments.



Required Books to Take This Course

North Star Geography - High School

This class will meet twice a week for the school year and cover the entire book. 

We are calling this High School level, but younger students could take it if they could keep up with the pace. 

We are offering a Middle School class as a separate class that will meet only once a week and cover only half of the book.  That will go at a gentler pace for younger students.


NOTE ABOUT GRADING: 

Projects and additional assignments must be graded by parents.  Each student must have a parent enrolling using a separate parent account.  Parents will have access to a grading password through their parent account to submit grades to the grade book for the parent graded assignments.
