Through writing challenges, presentations, and discussions, each student crafts a personal narrative that can be used as his or her college essay. The Capstone Project: Achievement into Action Focusing on the college application process, students research, examine, and report on examples of courage, motivation, influence, triumph, and legacy fulfillment through a hands-on leadership opportunity. The Journeys Symposium is where GWUOHS helps students navigate the passage from classroom to life where we give students the tools to wrestle more confidently with personal experience, which is a key to successful outcomes in college, and in life.

In addition, through the Middlebury-Monterey Language Academy (MMLA), GWUOHS students are invited to attend a fully immersive, four-week summer residency program hosted on multiple college campuses around the United States.

8 7 INSIGHTS INTO ATTENDING AN ONLINE SCHOOL Students at GWUOHS go to school online using our robust Learning Management System (LMS) that hosts online courses and course management tools for students, teachers, and parents. Students use the LMS to access course content, attend class sessions, take assessments, review grades, manage their course schedule, and interact with peers. This platform provides them with a single place to access any information related to their academic life at GWUOHS, anywhere there is an Internet connection. How Class Sessions Work All GWUOHS classes are conducted using a combination of asynchronous and synchronous (i.e., live) components the combinations will vary based on the course. Courses contain asynchronous reading, activities, assessments, and videos, as well as synchronous sessions conducted by the teacher at predefined times. Many of these sessions are recorded so that students can attend if they miss a session, or review all or part again if needed. Central to these synchronous sessions is the online classroom software our teachers use, which includes a whiteboard for live online instruction, multi-student discussion and collaboration, space for instructional slides, as well as file and video sharing. This technology enables teachers and students to conduct a virtual class as if they were in a physical classroom. Our faculty members also use this online classroom for office hours, tutorials, one-to-one sessions, as well as parent teacher conferences. Coursework Details Each course has a regular weekly schedule of lessons and assignments. Students are regularly involved in teacher-monitored online discussions on the key topics being covered in the course. The frequency of these discussions varies on a course-by-course basis. In addition to computer-graded quizzes and tests, other student assignments and tests are graded by the subject-specific teacher. Teachers proactively connect with students to ensure they comprehend subject matter, complete assignments, and progress on schedule. The Teaching Faculty at GWUOHS At the core of the academic program at GWUOHS is a caring faculty that is committed and responsive to individual needs while maintaining high expectations for all students. Our teachers are selected for expertise in their academic disciplines, as well as their experience teaching talented and diverse students. Employing a variety of strategies to support and challenge a wide array of learning styles, our talented faculty seeks to help each student realize his or her academic potential.
9 The George Washington University Online High School 8 Our faculty members have the opportunity to provide personal attention to their students, so they get to know them extremely well. Our teachers have also received in-depth training in online teaching best practices by K 12. K 12 has trained more teachers in these methodologies than any other organization. Our teachers: Conduct live online tutorial sessions when needed to reinforce difficult topics Respond to students questions via phone, , or IM Hold virtual office hours to provide individualized help Grade assignments and tests Our teachers are proactive and engage with students to help them succeed at GWUOHS and prepare them for success in college and life. DISPELLING MYTHS ABOUT ONLINE EDUCATION Here are three commonly held myths about online schooling that simply aren t the case. MYTH: Students spend all day staring at a computer. FACT: While attendance, planning, and assessment are all recorded online, not all of high school lesson time is spent on a computer. Content and virtual classroom time is complemented with printed and/or hands-on materials, including novels, textbooks, and such equipment as microscopes for lab work. MYTH: Students who attend online schools lack socialization and social skills. FACT: Students in online schools have the opportunity to participate in many academic and social outings and activities. These may include participation in offline and online clubs and enrichment activities. And since students in online schools have more flexible schedules, many find they actually have more time for artistic, athletic, and community activities than their peers in more traditional schooling environments. MYTH: Attending school online requires a parent to be the teacher. FACT: In an online school for grades K 8, parents can expect to spend part of each day supporting their child s education. However, by high school, a parent s role usually consists of gentle encouragement and support. Since the program provides a recommended schedule, teacher support, and all the required materials, parents don t have to worry about putting together lesson plans, tracking down materials, sorting out grades, and so on. Responsibility and independence is an expectation of the online high school student, and most respond with flying colors. One GWUOHS Teacher s Perspective: Cassandra Brownlow, High School English and History With a BA in English and certificate in education from Boise State University, Ms. Brownlow taught for four years at a brick-andmortar high school before joining GWUOHS. Our students are incredibly courageous, smart, and diligent learners. Not only are they taking their education into their own hands, they re taking it a step further. Our students apply ideas that matter to them, take risks, and go above and beyond. That s where the true learning takes place. Plus, it s clear that our parents greatly respect the capabilities of their children. They understand how to foster their students education in a way that s encouraging, not demanding. And that makes a meaningful difference.
10 9 CURRICULUM OPTIONS AT GWUOHS We offer a robust catalog of more than 100 courses. A total of 24 credits are required to graduate from GWUOHS. Students must earn a minimum of 6 simultaneous credits from GWUOHS courses to earn a diploma. Core Subjects Math, English, Science, and History courses are offered in multiple versions Comprehensive, Honors, and AP to meet the needs and interests of diverse learners. An individualized plan will help determine which level is appropriate for each student: Comprehensive courses require students to do extensive writing and research, and tackle problems that require analytical thinking. Course projects and activities demand independent thinking and selfdiscipline above the standard typically found in average high school courses. Honors courses hold students to a high degree of accountability, demanding independence and selfdiscipline. Students synthesize and evaluate information and concepts from multiple sources and read texts typically assigned in college-level courses. Students also demonstrate college-level writing in essays that require analysis of primary and secondary sources, responsible use of evidence, and comprehensive citation of sources. AP courses are at a college level and follow curriculum specified by the College Board. These courses are designed to prepare students for success on AP exams, providing students the opportunity to earn credit at most of the nation s colleges and universities.
