Everything listed under: Course Descriptions

  • Updated Co-op Schedule & Course Descriptions

    Drama has been added to the 2014-2015 Co-op schedule! Please read carefully the course description as there are some changes. Also please read Luke's course description carefully as grades will be given next year.

    If you have not, please check your course description and your class info. on the draft student registration sheet. I have received several correction requests. I'm trying to put an "updated" with a date on the header/footer so it will be clear that it has been updated.

    Please wait until we are sure that everything has been checked before you consider these course descriptions as final.

    Thanks!

  • Course Descriptions & Room Assignments - Please Check

    Almost all of the course descriptions are up. 4-6 History is not ready yet, and the Computer class' description is there, but it is a draft (with missing class fees), as the class is still tentative.

    TEACHERS - PLEASE CHECK your course description to see if it is correct. ALSO - PLEASE CHECK the "Draft Student Registration Sheet" (posted next to the Course Descriptions) to see if I have you at the correct hour with the correct teacher and copy fees and the correct teacher receiving the checks.

    Also - under regular "Co-op Documents," PLEASE CHECK the "Tentative Room Assignments" (2014-2015) to see where I have you, and let me know if you have any concerns, questions or suggestions.

    One more thing - each Course Description should "open in a new window." If it does not, let me know and I will fix it. (If you don't know what I'm talking about - no worries.)

    Thanks!

Please use Arial 10 pt. and fit it all on one page (unless you have a contract you want to include).

  • This year's course descriptinons and schedule....

    This current year's Course Descriptions and Schedule and Room Assignments will be disappearing from the blog this week in order to make room for the new ones. If you want any of these to save for your students' or your own records, please get them from the blog this week.

    Thanks!

  • Course Descriptions

    Course descriptions for next year's classes are due by Thursday of this week. See previous posting for details, or email me with questions. I actually do not need contact info on the course description, just teacher(s) name. Also, I need to know how many copies you will be making. Our cost breakdown is 0, 1-4, 5-8, 9-11 per student per week. Please let me know which category you fall in. If you are more than 11, let me know and I'll figure it out.

  • Course Descriptions

    Due by the end of February (to me electronically)
    Course Description on one page.
    (If you have a “contract” – that can be an additional page.)

    Tell me how many copies you will be making per student per week so I can assess your copy fee. And let me know who will be receiving the class money if there is more than one teacher.

    Use Arial 10 pt. font for the entire document
    First 7 lines are centered, bolded, and double-spaced between lines. Those 7 lines are:

    Class Name (underlined)
    Day of Week and Time of Class (i.e. Thursdays 11:20 – 12:20)
    Grade Level: (i.e. Grade Level: 7 – 8)
    Teacher(s) Name(s)
    Student Fee: and who the check is payable to (i.e. payable to Jane Doe)
    Copy Fee: (just tell me how many copies per student per week, and I will figure out your copy fee.) (payable to the church)

    Class Size: (minimums and maximums if applicable)*

    Then double space and begin the body of your course description. Please double space between paragraphs, but single space your paragraphs. You may bold individual headers of paragraphs, but not the whole document. I'm flexible on your margins as some will need smaller margins to fit it all on one page.

    Please either include some wording at the bottom about helpers or leave room for approx. 4 lines about helpers for me to add. Tuesday classes and Thursday afternoon classes (and now maybe 9:00 classes) need more room at the bottom for a "helper blurb" as moms with kids in these classes need to know that they may need to serve in those classes (possibly on a rotating basis if we don’t have enough people available to serve full-time).

    Please remember that if you are going to have any sort of "contract" that the parents or the students have to sign or if there are going to be extra classes (like mid-terms) or uniforms needed or extra rehearsals (choir/drama) - that information should be part of or turned in with your course description.

    *For class size - some of that will be limited by room size. Most of you that are traditionally in the smaller classrooms know that you will probably be there again. 12 fit nicely in those classes. We've squeezed 15-16 in a major pinch. Room assignments are not set in stone at the moment, but I've got a pretty good idea where people might end up, so if you need to know, let me know.

    Let me know if you want me to send you any samples. (At the moment, there are samples on the blog. Those will disappear soon though to make room for the new ones.)

  • Get your course descriptions if you are going to need them

    The current course descriptions from this year (2012-2013) will be disappearing in the next few months to make room for the new ones. I will post one final reminder before I take them off, but if you are going to want them for your records or to be able to access for the whole year, please get them off the blog and save them on your computer.

    Thanks

  • New Course Descriptions Are Up

    All the Course Descriptions for Co-op 2012-2013 are up. Just go to the blog and look under "Course Descriptions" (under the big "HEA Blog" and above where the posts begin). The registration packet is not up yet, but all the Course Descriptions should be there. If you are a teacher and you see anything incorrect on your course description, please let me know right away.

    Registration will take place on the last two Sundays in April in the church lobby, before and after church.

    Let me know if you have any questions.

    Thanks,

    Susan

  • Course Descriptions

    I hope to post all the 2012-2013 Course Descriptions on the blog this week (probably not until Friday). That means that all the current course descriptions will disappear. If you want to save any of the current course descriptions, please save them from the blog immediately.

    For this year's course descriptions, some have more info and/or contracts attached in one documents. Some might be under two documents.

    Thanks!

  • Checks at Registration

    If your class is taught by more than one teacher, I need to know who you want the checks made out to.

    So...please send your course description with your class fee, let me know how many copies per student per week and who is receiving the class fees (and don't forget to include any class contracts - which can be on a second page.)

    Thanks.

  • Course Descriptions Due in 9 Days! (& Copies!)

    HI all,

    Your course descriptions are due in 9 days. Also I need to know how many copies you will be making for your students next year. Here are the breakdowns:

    1. No Copies

    2. 1-4 copies per student per week

    3. 5-8 copies per student per week

    4. 9-11 copies per student per week

    5. More? How many?

    I will be adding a copy fee to your class fee to cover the cost of copies.

    If you have already sent me your course description (thank you!) - I still need this copy info. from you.

    Thanks so much!

  • Course Descriptions Needed

    Due by the end of February (to me electronically)

    Classes that are conducting experiments or craft projects, please charge enough to cover your expenses! Even if a class has been traditionally $20 - you may charge more if you need to. In fact, I would encourage you to do so, as I hear often that teachers are running out of money!

    *For class size - some of that will be limited by room size. Most of you that are traditionally in the smaller classrooms know that you will probably be there again. 12 fit nicely in those classes. We've squeezed 15-16 in a major pinch.

  • We have a U.S. History Class! (Graded 10-12)

    Dawn Okada and Gina Lannon have decided to offer a small U.S. History class for grades 10-12 on Thursday afternoons 1:00-2:00. The course description is under Course Descriptions, and I've included it here as well.

    "PSA": As always, please do not ask the teachers to change the time or the grade level or their plan. These are busy ladies willing to offer something in Co-op that they were going to do in their homes.

    I suspect that this class may fill quickly, so please let ME know right away if you are interested. If you know of someone who was looking for this, please contact them and let them know I've posted this in case they miss it.

    If you have any questions, let me know.

    American History   Thursdays 1:00 – 2:00 pm   Grades 10 - 12
    Co-Teachers: Dawn Okada & Gina Lannon
    Student Fee: $25 (Includes a $5 charge for photocopying)
    Class Size Limit: 10

    The students in this class will be reading all 10 volumes of Joy Hakim’s History of US series. The students will follow a syllabus and read approximately 60-80 pages a week and prepare for weekly in-class discussions (questions provided).

    As teachers, we see our role primarily as facilitators to encourage these students to interact with this very engaging text and to discuss the material with their classmates.

    These books are available at the library, so you may either borrow them or purchase them. 3rd edition would be preferred, but 2nd edition would work as well.

    We will not be giving tests or a final grade although we are willing to provide you with feedback on how your student has done in regard to their class participation, understanding of the material, writing assignments and projects. There are tests available if you want to purchase and administer them at home.

    Expectation of Students: Daily reading, daily responses to reading, in-class timed essays, weekly in-class discussions, regular, but not weekly, at home essays to dig deeper into more specific topics. Possibly two+ projects over the course of the year (i.e. group project)

    Reading the material is mandatory for this class. If your student has not read all the assigned text, they will not benefit from this course.

    The first assignment, to be completed before our first meeting, will be sent via email as soon as possible.

    Expectation of Parents: Supervise and confirm that your student is fulfilling the assignments and coming prepared to class.

    Two parents will be needed to volunteer for the following positions.
    · Field trip coordinator
    · Writing evaluator – someone to read assigned essays and provide feedback for the students, as needed.

    Supplies Needed:
    · Access to the textbooks
    · 3-ring binder with dividers
    · Pencils/Pens
    · Notebook paper

     

  • couple of changes

    Sara Eaton's World Geography is now for grades 6-7 and the fee is slightly increased.

    Sara Jane's European History has some updates - new ISBN numbers (I think.)

    Science 5-6 is now uploaded.

    Intro to Speech and Comm.'s fee is slightly increased.

    Geography 7-9 should be up by this weekend.

    Updated schedule reflecting these grade changes.

  • Course Descriptions and Registration Material on the blog

    Almost all of the Course Descriptions are now on the blog (under Course Descriptions).

    http://www.sovgracefairfax.org/hea/

    All the Co-op Registration Material will be on the blog (hopefully) within a few days. I'm waiting on a few details on two classes.

    This means there will be NO PACKETS this year. Everything will be here - for you to review and print.

    You will need to access (and print if necessary):

    1. Policy Manual 2011-2012 (under Co-op Documents)

    2. Registration Packet (under Co-op Documents) (MUST PRINT. THE PAPERWORK REQUIRED AT THE REGISTRATION TABLE IS IN THIS PACKET)

    3. Co-op '11-'12 Schedule (under Co-op Documents)

    4. Course Descriptions (under Course Descriptions)

    If you need help on finding this stuff, grab me on Thursday, and I will show you.

  • Heads-Up on Co-op Registration and Course Descriptions

    Course descriptions will be available exclusively here on the blog (not in "the packets") this year. I have begun to upload them, so please become familiar with where they are and ask me if you need any help. I hope to have them all up by early next week. (On the blog look "above" the posts and click on "Course Descriptions.")

    http://www.sovgracefairfax.org/hea

    Also, I believe Co-op registration will be moving a bit earlier (this year) to Sunday, April 10 and Sunday, April 17 (because the last Sunday in April is Easter Sunday.) So that means that registration for Co-op 2011-2012 is in SIX WEEKS!!

  • Copy Fee for Next Year's Co-op

    Teachers,

    For next year.....

    I once again need to know approximately how many copies you will be making - either total each week, total for the year, total per student - whatever is easier for you to figure out. And then I need to add a copy fee to your class fee. This fee will come back to the church to cover your class copies. If you are not going to make any copies at all, then no charge necessary. Typically one or two per student each week only needs an additional $5 copy fee. More than that, and it will go up. Just let me know numbers, and I will figure out amount.

    Thanks,

    Susan

  • Course Descriptions

    Hi Teachers for next year's Co-op,
    I need your course descriptions by Feb. 28th. They need to be in Arial 10 pt. They MUST fit on one page. I have put our first one for next year under Course Descriptions here on the blog. I have omitted contact info. for the blog version. But put contact info. on yours. Here are the details. If you need more info, e-mail me.
    First 6 lines are centered, bolded, and double-spaced between lines. Those 6 lines are:

    Class Name (underlined)
    Day of Week and Time of Class
    Grade Level:
    Teacher Name, Phone Number, E-mail Address (in that order) (e-mail address underlined but not "blue")
    Student Fee:
    Class Size:

    Then double space and begin the body of your course description. Please double space between paragraphs. You may bold individual headers of paragraphs, but not the whole document. I'm flexible on your margins as some will need smaller margins to fit it all on one page.

    Please either include some wording at the bottom about helpers or leave room for approx. 4 lines about helpers for me to add. Tuesday classes need more room at the bottom for a "helper blurb" as moms with kids in Tuesday classes need to know that they may need to serve in those classes.
