Dear: Students and Parents

As an Independent Studies Student you will continue as usual with your other courses and activities, including meeting with your teacher once a week. In addition you can expect to have a special learning experience in this English course, made possible by taking the course over the Internet.
How online learning works
Our Online English Course utilizes a special web site for communicating between: teachers, students and parents. You will be given a password in order to “log on” (get into) our web site.
What you do
All work is done on your computer, in typing and transferred to our web site or sent via e-mail over the Internet for your teacher or fellow students to read. There are no set times you must log on to the web site, but there are rules for weekly participation.
More details about your online course will be made available to you next week.
You or your parent may e-mail me if you have any questions.
Lets make this a great course.
