Type of a Learner
Seeking Safe Environment, Needs More Flexibility.
Start the day taking care of medical needs.
Log into her online classroom and go through the days’ schedule to see the lessons and assignments she needs to complete for 2D Animation, Journalism, Economics, Geometry, and English.
Take care of additional medical needs and work with her service dogs.
Work through the day’s 2D Animation lessons and then check her understanding and connect with her teachers if she needs help mastering any of the concepts.
Return to the day’s lessons and complete Journalism assignments. When needed, her Learning Coach is there to lend a hand and make sure she’s understanding the concepts she’s being taught.
Head outside with the dogs for fresh air and sunshine.
On bad weather days, work on diamond pictures, water colors or other projects.
Take care of assignments in Geometry and work on longer-term 2D Animation projects, connecting with peers when there’s a group project to complete.
Enjoy a video chat with dad whenever he’s on military assignment.
Handle a bit of schoolwork when it’s needed and turn in any remaining assignments, with her Learning Coach double checking that everything is complete for the day.
When muscular dystrophy, multiple doctor appointments, and other obstacles began to put a strain on her education, Connections Academy’s convenient and inclusive online schooling gave her the high school experience she deserved.
