00.02 About Me and Course Guidelines (AR1)

teacher-scored 15 points possible 20 minutes

Assignment One: Assignment One is the "About Me & Parent Form" assignment. YOU WILL PASTE your paragraph and questions A - C below into the Submission Box under "About Me & Parent Form" and also you will upload the form in this same assignment box. You also paste Assignment Two in this first box. On this main page you will see a capital BLUE A with A + in the far left margin and that is the indicator throughout the course that it is an ASSIGNMENT when you see the A+. You may have to send the paragraph and answers and then send the form separately, but still within that About Me Submission Box.

Write a paragraph (at least five sentences) about yourself. Also in About Me, do the following:

A. give your parent/guardian's name and email address and phone
B. give your school counselor's name and email and phone
C. state if there is anyone else who oversees or helps you with your work - if there is, include their name, email and phone number.

FOR ALL OF YOUR ASSIGNMENTS in this course, type all of your answers into your word processing document (use a cheap program like TextEdit or Notes - "Word" does not format and I would have to ask you to redo it.) Then copy all of the data asked for in the Submission Box (this is ALL of your answers that you just put in the word processing program) and paste it into the Assignment Submission Box. Your word processing document, that you'll keep on your computer or a flash drive will be your copy of the entire course. This is for safe keeping and everything from About Me to the very end will be on that document.

There is NOT a Submission Box for every single assignment or unit, in fact, there may be several units in one Submission Box. Just keep putting your answers in your word processing document as you go along. Keep clicking on the arrow on the bottom right that says "Next." Then you will come to a Submission Box and it will say to paste certain assignments within that box. BUT, do no skip even one or else the whole thing will be rejected. Do put All that is requested in this box and only paste all of the work one time.

Parent Permission Form - Required by the State of Utah (If you submit this for first quarter, you don't have to submit it again in second quarter.)
To get your top 50 points you must include the Parent Permission Form with Assignment One. You submit that in this area right after you do the About Me paragraph and A-C and Assignment Two. (Don't upload these. The only thing you upload is the signed Parent Form. :)

Print out the Parent Permission Form--it is shown as an attached document in orange print at the bottom of the very first "Overview" page. Have your parent/guardian sign it. It is best to take a photo of it or scan the document and upload it asap. Be sure you scan the parent signature. You cannot get credit for this course if you have not sent this form. If you are over 18, don't send the form, just write, "I'm 18" in the assignment box. :)

Upload the Parent Permission Form. If you look down, a little lower to the right you should see blue letters that say Upload or Re-upload data. Click on that and you should be able to upload the form. (25 points)

Assignment Two:

A. Review the Adult Roles and Responsibilities Standards document, and then, in the assignment answer box write a paragraph about what topics in the course that you think you will enjoy the most. :)

Assignment Three:

Pre-Course Guidelines You will paste the Pre-Course Guidelines in the Submission Box with the same title. Rewrite them as is asked and don't send the questions, as 21 says.

If you are in Quarter Two, please review these Course Guidelines again, so they are fresh for you. If you recall, it is important to me that you follow the directions exactly. This is a good habit for you to develop - it will prepare you for college and a future job. :) However, if you have already done them in quarter one, you can just write a sentence saying, "I did these in quarter one."

Rewrite the answers to the questions below. Rewrite them using your own words.

I am giving you the answers to this section. I want you to rewrite the answers in your own words, do not copy and paste them. This information is all vital to your success. I grade heavily on following directions so always follow the course guidelines exactly. Memorize these.

1. Can you start the Teen Living course if you have not read all of the Information and Start Here sections?

Answer: No, I must read those sections first before starting the course.

2. If you have a special deadline, what are you required to do?

Answer: I must let the teacher know at least two weeks prior to the date of the final deadline.

3. Can you send individual exercises, meaning sending Exercise 1 and then Exercise 2 at another time and so on?

Answer: No, I am not to put anything in the assignment boxes until the unit is 100% completed in the word processing program. I should not send messages in the assignment box, they are to go in the “Messages” area or to be sent in an email message. No assignments are to ever be sent in email, only messages.

4. Can you send the exercises in any order you choose?

Answer: No, I must send all answers in consequential order and if there is something missing, I should state that. I must always check the Lesson material at the top of the unit. All data that will be on the final is in this Lesson Content area, so you must read it all. Before saying something is missing check above and below in the curriculum. Then, if you can't find it or if you can't get a document to open, STOP and notify the teacher by email or in the Message area. Do not leave anything blank.

5. Can you skip an exercise?

Answer: No, I cannot skip any exercises and I cannot say “I don’t know.”

6. How long do you normally need to wait for the teacher to correct your work?

Answer: The teacher is encouraged to have all work corrected within three days.

7. Can you give the teacher "phony" deadlines? How might the teacher feel if s/he finds out you made up a deadline?

Answer: I would lose trust with my teacher because it’s really a lie.

8. If you sign up to take the course in the late spring, when should you start sending work? Why?

Answer: I must send work immediately because I cannot expect the teacher to grade one whole quarter in a couple of days.

9. Can you work from an old printed copy of the curriculum? Why?

Answer: No, because the teacher might think that I am cheating. I must only use current curriculum.

10. If you have a problem with the teacher, why is it best to talk to the teacher first before complaining elsewhere?

Answer: I must learn that this is the proper procedure in the work world and elsewhere. It complicates things and typically makes the teacher OR immediate supervisor (if you do this on your job) feel badly because you did not follow the proper communication procedures. I've seen many people be fired for not communicating with the proper person. In this case, your teacher is the proper person to complain to or to tell of your problem. If it is a system issue, then I will forward your problem on to the EHS administration.

11. Can you be automatically dropped from Teen Living? If so, why would that happen?

Answer: Yes, I can be automatically dropped if I don’t send work regularly. I must send work within a two-week period of time.

12. If you intend to finish this course in less than one month, what is required?

Answer: Especially if it is in the spring, just prior to graduation, I must let the teacher know. If many students wait until the very last minute, it may be impossible for my teacher to correct a quarter’s worth of work in a few days for a lot of people.

13. Can I send my work through email?

Answer: No, I can never send assignments through email.

14. What are important formatting guidelines?

Answer: Use normal font, always use black, normal size (12), no bold or underline (except for Exercise #1, etc.). Also, no centering or right alignment because when the teacher answers, I may not see the answer. Also, I must always leave a line space prior to each ASSIGNMENT label that is in caps and bold. If my personal computer won't do bold, then just caps is sufficient for the EXERCISE labels.

15. Why is it important that you work from a Word Processing program?

Answer: Because then I have a copy of all of my work if something happens and I can also finish a unit over several days, but it will be in one place for me to copy and paste into the Assignment box when it is 100% complete.

16. Does the teacher like it if I ask questions?

Answer: Yes, the instructor sincerely wants to help me. If I don’t understand something, I should copy the question and paste it into a message for my instructor and then tell her which parts I don’t understand. I must ALWAYS state my name as it appears in the EHS record, and give the course name and state which quarter it is.

17. Should students wait to start the course until after the permission form is entered?

Answer: No, I should not wait to start the course until after the permission form is entered. I should start immediately. But, I must not forget - the form is required by law.

18. After the final, am I immediately finished?

Answer: No, I must be sure to check with my counselor within two weeks at the end of the course. I must SEE my credit on my transcript before I stop checking. This is very important.

19. Can students request that their grade be changed if they don’t like the final grade, and can students retake the final exam?

Answer: No, once you take the final, your grade cannot be changed if you don’t feel it is high enough. No, there are no retakes on the final.

20. Can students get an A for the course if they do not get an A on the final exam?

Answer: No. Students MUST get an A on the final exam or they cannot get an A for a final course grade. Study very HARD for the final. The finals are quite different in each class and some are a lot harder than others - you must be prepared by studying VERY hard for each one. Each final is worth 50% of your grade, so don't think the final will be easy. Study the entire course for the final, and there are no notes or helps allowed.

21. Do you send the teacher all of the questions and curriculum?

Answer: No, I only send answers, no questions or curriculum. The teacher wants to see answers only, and my work will not be accepted if I forget.

00.03 Parent Perm. (AR1)

teacher-scored 100 points possible 30 minutes

Assignment Three: Print out the Parent Permission Form--it is shown as an attached document in blue print with a 3 in front of it. Have your parent/guardian sign it. It is best to TAKE A PHOTO of it or SCAN the document and upload it asap. Be sure you scan the parent signature. You cannot get credit for this course if you have not sent this form. If you are over 18, don't send the form, just write, "I'm 18" in the assignment box.

This is required by law, so please send it ASAP. Thank you. Print it out, have your parents SIGN IT. They should check all the tiny boxes at the top of page 2 because we will be covering all of those topics. Certainly you know someone who has a camera on a smart phone who can snap a photo and then send it off to me. Or, you can find scanners in libraries or at the school--you might ask a technology teacher if you can't find a librarian to help you in a library. Be sure to take the photo of the signature page, upload it to your desktop and upload it in the assignment area. Or, send it as an attachment using the teacher's email address under the teacher contact information.

NOTE: By Utah State law, parental or guardian consent is required for a student to participate in human sexuality instruction. State policy states that instruction includes the importance of marriage and the family, abstinence from sexual activity before marriage, and fidelity after marriage. Consult the local school district on its policy regarding the teaching of human sexuality and district approved instructional materials.

REMEMBER TO PUT ALL OF YOUR ANSWERS IN A WORD PROCESSING PROGRAM (NOT Word). DO NOT SUBMIT THEM INTO THE SUBMISSION BOX until you come to a Submission Box and it tells you to paste certain work into it. Paste ALL of the work requested in that box only ONE time. The first box may not be until the end of Unit 2. Just click on the box that is on the lower right, that has an arrow and it says "Next," until you come to the Submission Box.
