Independent Study folder sheets and evaluations

  03/23/20 07:56, by Lynne

Getting questions about folder sheets/evaluations for independent studies, so here's how we can proceed:

If you have a blank folder sheet to work from, go ahead and make a plan for the next unit (Unit 7) on regular paper. You can then take a photo and attach it to a blog post (titled Unit 7 Folder Sheet) I will comment on it, and that will count as "signing off."

If you don't have a folder sheet with you, see my notes below for how to recreate one.

Your unit 6 reflection can be typed in a Google Doc instead of on the actual folder sheet. Again, I will comment, and that counts as my signature.


Here is the information to include on the folder sheet:

Your name

The subject you are studying

Whether it's a half credit or full credit


First tell your expectations (1-5) for the following activities you will be using during the unit:

Daily blogging (for the class, not for your Laurel requirements)

Folder (the overall quality of your folder sheet)

Reflections (your unit evaluation)

Testing (if you are doing an online study that includes quizzes/tests, or if you are doing Quizlets or making your own tests for the class)

Formal Writing (essays)

Vocabulary (especially Foreign Language, but also other classes)

Research Paper

Presentation (this could include sharing your artwork online, videos of musical practices and other performing arts, a Google slide show, an ASL demonstration)

Note-taking (show me your notes for the past unit)

Special Project (whatever this looks like)

Online Course (Khan Academy, Rosetta Stone, Typing.com, etc.)

Other (anything not listed above)


Remember, you aren't required to do all of these activities, only the ones that pertain to your independent study.


Next, in one paragraph, tell me your plan for Unit 7 (what you plan to learn). Fore example: In my study of The Industrial Revolution in the US, I want to learn how early manufacturing changed the economy and the American way of life, from agrarian to more cosmpolitan.

In a second paragraph, tell me specifically how you plan to learn it (online reading, books, online courses, videos, experiments, etc.) For example: I plan to read two books about the Industrial Revolution (giving book titles), write two summaries, watch videos about manufacturing from the 1900s through 2000, and create a Google Slide show with my findings.

At the end of the unit, you will do the Completed Work (telling me what you actually did accomplish)

Unit 6 ends Tuesday, March 31; please complete your evaluations by Friday, April 3.

Unit 7 begins April 1; please complete your folder sheet by Monday, April 6.

If you have any questions, please ask. You know I'm here to support you!
