Work at your own pace! Downloadable suggested schedule grids are available to help set your own schedule, but you can complete the quizzes at any time you wish to log on.
Also included are a selection of reference and outline maps, graphic organizers an extensive glossary, a grading rubric for hands-on projects, and a report-card calculator (as an Excel file).
The quizzes each contain 10 multiple choice and T/F questions about the lesson text. (Question order and answer order is randomized to prevent re-taking quizzes on autopilot if the grade is unsatisfactory the first time around.) A passing grade of 70% is required to advance to the next lesson. After the last lesson you can take the final exam, consisting of 50 questions taken from all the lessons. A certificate of completion is awarded to anyone of passes the final exam.
If you want to test your students on the mapwork and memorization list, you can take those tests too! If not, you can bypass them. At the end of the year, simply plug all the grades from the components you choose to use into your Excel Report Card to get a detailed final grade report.
We recommend that students who pass the final exam and complete the hands-on assignments their teacher selects receive one high school credit of geography.
