The class is once a week for 2 hours. I did find a handbook - - this should take is through the first semester - - then 2nd semester i think we can move forward with the "Project(s)" - - thankskusti8 wrote:I suggest finding something that the kids really want to ultimately do with the Pi, something that sounds fun and work through the tutorials. Then have them work on the ambitious (but not too ambitious project) and that should last the year. If not, you can always find other projects in the MagPi.
Is the class every day?

That's based on assuming that "teaching a class" is about something compulsory, not a voluntary out of school activity.
Maybe Code Club ( https://www.codeclub.org.uk/ ) in the UK, or Code Club World ( http://codeclubworld.org/ ) elsewhere, might be the source of support you need?vrntch_pi wrote:This is a voluntary class for homeschool students, so no examinations per se, although they will be given grades based upon attendance/participation/effort/assignment completion et et.
