The class is broken down into different levels and missions to make it easier to manage studying with a variety of schedules. The whole course takes approximately 3 hours but can be completed at a student’s chosen pace. It can be stopped and started, and missions can be repeated as desired. Each mission includes visual demonstrations or images, along with a verbal explanation to help a wide range of learners understand the importance and meaning of different road rules.

If a student has questions or needs clarification on concepts, they are able to reach out to the trainer throughout the program and get feedback or clarification directly.

We will also have a supply list for you to gather things at home to use for zoom meetings or daily extension activities. The list will consist of everyday things like tape, string, paper plate, paperclips, ect.. If you don’t have an item like a paper clip on hand for the week, please feel free to utilize another item. This is a great opportunity to learn about innovation and creativity. (This can be a great learning experience in itself that I highly encourage).

Having supplies ready and knowing how to turn on/off the microphone on the zoom meeting. Google Classrooms will also be utilized. Office hours-with the teacher will be available at your convenience.
