Description

Instead of handling every part of the course on their own, families have someone to go to for specific questions about the course, and accountability to complete the work required by the curriculum. Use the service regardless of the format in which you purchased the curriculum—DVD, USB, digital or streaming.  Facilitation for a course does not include the curriculum itself, which must be purchased separately.

Facilitation is offered for the following courses:

Our facilitators are homeschoolers very familiar with our courses and instructors. They have set up a “flipped” classroom environment with multiple options for support. Here’s the range of activities from a student’s point of view:

  1. Watch the curriculum lesson.
  2. Read any assignments.
  3. Have a question? Ask in the group. (See example.)
  4. Participate in written discussions to reinforce each lesson. (See example.)
  5. Join Zooms with the facilitator every other week. (See History, Latin and Science tabs for individual schedules.)
  6. Mark assignments from the curriculum complete. (See example.)
  7. Upload assignment selections for comment. (See example.)
  8. Review comments on uploaded work. (See example.)
  9. Parents can see assignment completions and comments and use them for marking grades. (See example.)

Course help for students:

  • Moderated groups
  • Comments on selected assignments
  • Zoom discussions
  • Everything archived and accessible at any time

Course help for parents:

  • Orientation to course pieces
  • Schedule for completing the year-long course
  • Dashboard to view upcoming and completed assignments
  • Notifications of your student’s progress
  • Month-to-month signups

FAQ

What is included in a facilitated course?

  • Membership in a private discussion board where students can post questions at any time for a direct response.
  • Written discussions for each lesson in the curriculum, created by the facilitator on the discussion board.
  • Live bi-weekly Zoom discussions on lesson content led by a facilitator.
  • Online courseware with steps for all assignments in the curriculum. Students mark these complete or submit documents for review by a facilitator and grading by the parent.
  • Review of submitted coursework by the facilitator to make sure it meets the assignment guidelines.
  • Weekly reports of submitted assignments sent to parents.
  • Access to recordings of live discussions, Q&A sessions, project workshops, and other live webinar events.

For more details about facilitation for a specific course, click one of the subject tabs next to FAQ above.

What is the difference between a facilitator and a teacher?

We use the term facilitator because our teachers—Dwane, Dave, Jonathan, Kurt, etc.— still handle the instruction through their pre-recorded videos (sold separately). The facilitator, on the other hand, makes learning the content and walking through all the assignments easier.

Our facilitators are homeschoolers who have used the curriculum extensively themselves!

What if I have more than one student who wants to take a facilitated course?

Facilitation is priced per-student, per-course. So if you have two students who want to participate in the facilitated course for American History, you would select “American History 2023-2024” from the product page, and input a quantity of 2. The cost would be $50 per month.

Is the curriculum included?

No, it is not. Curriculum videos and/or books must be purchased separately. Facilitation works with your new or existing curriculum purchase in any format—DVD, USB, download, or streaming.

How are assignments and grades handled?

Facilitation does not include grading of individual assignments, tests, or projects. Grading ultimately remains  the responsibility of the parent. However, the facilitator will review all submissions to make sure they meet the assignment guidelines and are ready for parent evaluation. All work submitted within our courseware is held for parent review, and will be scored on a pass-fail basis only. At any time, parents can contact the facilitator to adjust a score to reflect their assigned grade.

Can I begin facilitation after August?

You can begin facilitation at any time. While these courses are aligned with the academic year, there are two ways that you can use the available resources:

  1. The facilitator is able to help with any lesson in the curriculum, so your student can ask questions at any time in our private discussion boards.
  2. You will have access to all written discussions and recorded video meetings, project workshops, and help sessions conducted by the facilitator. You can catch up at a pace that works for your family.
