Independent Studies semester-end responsibilities

  01/05/21 11:19, by Lynne

Hello, all independent study students! What a wonderfully challenging semester this was, eh? And yet you rose to the occasion and made it work -- good job, everyone!

Here are some semester-end things to keep in mind:

1. Unit folder sheets

Be sure to complete your Unit 4 folder sheet number-ranked evaluations and Completed Work and turn in to me no later than Friday, Jan. 22. This deadline is firm; please respect it. Forms turned in after Jan. 22 will not be approved. Look over folder sheets for previous units and make sure all areas are completed and the form has been signed by you and by me. Review the Plan/Specifics/Completed Work for each unit and print all supporting documents to show the work you accomplished for the semester.

2. Self-evaluation forms

You soon will be receiving a self-evaluation form that is slightly different than those for prior units. This evaluation asks you to reflect on the entire semester, so please provide thoughtful and detailed answers to the questions. Renee places a much higher value on this semester evaluation, so you will want it to reflect your thoughts as clearly and honestly as possible.

These self-evaluation forms are due to me no later than Monday, Jan. 25.


3. Foreign Language Standards

If you are finishing a full-credit of foreign language this semester, be sure you have completed the entire level of Rosetta Stone and the accompanying worksheets, and all of the Laurel language standards. You will need to have all of these documents accessible both through Google Docs (in a dedicated folder) and as printed hard copies for your file at school. If you need help with the printing, please let me or Cassidy know -- we are happy to help.

If you are completing a half-credit, the above also applies, except it would be for half of the requirements.

4. Keyboarding

If you have completed the Keyboarding course, I will notify Renee that you have earned the half-credit. I also will provide a Certificate of Completion for you (this will likely be a download). If you have not completed the course this semester, you may continue to work on it during second semester to earn the half-credit. However, you will not be using a dedicated class block to do so; it will need to be finished outside of class time.

5. Final semester meetings

Please plan to attend your meetings with me during these final weeks. We will be reviewing your independent studies to make sure you are ready for your meeting with Renee. Also those will be excellent opportunities to ask any questions you may have, well in advance of the end of semester.
