    Default Generating scheduler

    Hi, this is my first week if homeschooling my 9th grade daughter using the T4L and want to make sure I don't cause her to get behind. My question is, I generate her schedule for the whole week so when she started her English one Monday she had done 4 days worth in one day lol. How can she know when she's done with each subject that it's for one day? Hope my question doesn't sound stupid. I'm just afraid I'm going to do something wrong or get her behind. Thanks for your help with this.

    Hi Sweetpea! The beauty of homeschooling, and using an online curriculum like T4L, is you can move at your own pace.

    The Time4Learning program provides members with a full year’s worth of curriculum that is laid out in a suggested sequence with lessons building on each other. The program prompts your child to move from lesson to lesson marking them off as they are completed. Since the program is self-paced, you can decide how many lessons your child completes each day. The assignments function is used by teachers in schools and only allows them to assign one lesson at a time to their entire class. Since Time4Learning is a home-based curriculum, the assignments feature is not functional for home use.

    To help with lesson planning, Time4Learning has designed the activity scheduler to help figure out how many lessons to do per week, and can be accessed through the parent administration page. The activity scheduler allows you to break down the curriculum week- by-week into an easy to follow plan that can be printed out and saved in PDF form. Each activity is assigned a learning a learning activity number (LA#) which will be included on the generated schedule. The student can then type this LA# into the activity finder on your child’s launch page which will take them directly to the activity.

    Take the amount of lessons per subject and divide by the number of days in your year to arrive at a certain amount of lessons per day, per subject. Keep in mind though some lessons take longer than others depending on what is being taught.

    Since the planner generates for the week and not daily, there is the option for the student to click on the activities they have completed as a place keeper only. The parent still needs to log in to the progress report to see the completed work and the grades.

    This page has a video tutorial about using the activity scheduler. Look under "Lesson Previewing and Planning" and click on the third one down. A pop-up window will open. The tutorial is just over one minute.
    Joyfully,
    Jackie
