How help your student survive an online science course

Parents Guide

Many common concerns are also addressed on the FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions) page for this course, so be sure to read it also!


PARENTS: PLEASE READ THROUGH THIS GUIDE!

Scholars Online courses are a cooperative effort between the teachers, the students, and their parents. Like the proverbial three-legged stool, if one leg is broken or missing, the stool will topple over. You are a necessary and important part of this course, and your student will need your guidance to apply the study skills and self-discipline needed to survive the class.

CANDLE Website Organization

For both maintenance and security reasons, there are three online environments for this course: course materials, Chat, and the MOODLE. Most pages will be organized by links in the Moodle to course homework pages, and links from the homework assignment pages to all other website pages required for a given assignment, so students can navigate from one environment to another easily.

Expectations of Student Performance

Students are expected to complete reading assignments, experiments, and lab reports prior to each chat session, and to come prepared to discuss material. This is not a lecture course. Students are expected to bring the experiences they have to chat so that we can discuss them; if a student has not completed the assigned hands-on work, there is nothing to discuss. We know that summer schedules are busy, and we try to accommodate students who miss must miss one assignment for circumstances out of their control, we need your commitment to help your students find the time to do the work for this course in order for it to be successful for everyone.
