|Driver Education||1||Dave Brooks*, Trevor Wardemail@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org|
|Driver Education for Weber Online is the classroom theory part of getting your driver's license. It is intended to take 27 hours to complete. There are two options for completing the course. Choose one of the two options to complete the class. At the end of the class you will complete the "READY" assignment. At this time, you must make your final selection on the option you are choosing. This decision is final. Make sure you talk with your parent or guardian and make sure your school will accept Driver's Education credit as credit (not all districts count Driver's Education credit toward graduation).|
• A) Classroom Completion only -- This means that you are completing the class in order to JUST obtain a driver's license. No letter grade will be given, no credit will be generated, and, consequently, there will be no effect on your GPA. This option does NOT require a proctored final.
• B) Academic Credit -- This option WILL award a letter grade. It WILL affect your GPA, and WILL grant .25 credit toward graduation. This option REQUIRES that you take and PASS the proctored final with a minimum of 70%. Your final grade is based on all the points earned in the course. This option also gives you the completion necessary to obtain your driver license. (You must have a functional webcam and functional computer microphone to take the proctored final if you reside out of Weber School District.)
You are required to complete all activities and quizzes for both options to complete this class.
• You must be 15 years of age in order to begin the class.
•There are 1200 points possible in the class assignments.
◦You must earn 70% (840) of the total points to complete the course.
•You must pass the "Course Assessment" with 70% or higher score. (Those selecting Option B must also pass the Proctored Final test. The total points possible are 1598, and you will need to pass at 70% (1119) of the overall total points to complete the course.)

|English 9||1,2,3,4||Trudy Sportsmanfirstname.lastname@example.org||52119|
|The needs of ninth grade students transitioning to high school are a fundamental concern to middle-level language arts teachers. The Utah Core focuses on reading and writing experiences that are developmentally appropriate: vocabulary instruction that compares connotation with denotation and identifies word meanings using sentence structure (grammar), reading instruction that focuses on inference and the difference between interesting and important information in informational text, and character development and more complex figurative language in narrative and poetry. Writing focuses on comparing multiple ideas and perspectives to extend thinking through writing, and concentrates on persuasive writing in preparation for the Utah Basic Skills Test. Skills in analytical evaluation and assessment of writing become more nuanced, and editing skills are specific and clearly delineated. Inquiry skills are focused on questioning as a research technique and evaluating sources of information. State Code: 06020000040|
|English 10||1,2,3,4||Nick Harrisemail@example.com||52210|
|The developmental needs of students approaching young adulthood are critical to secondary language arts teachers. The Utah Core focuses on reading and writing experiences that are developmentally appropriate: vocabulary instruction that evaluates connotation in text and compares and identifies word meanings using analogy and antonym context clues. Because human beings are never too old to improve their reading skills, reading instruction focuses on electronic text, using explicit and implicit information to evaluate informational text; on the ways in which character development and connections to politics, history, and culture contribute to great literature; and on more complex figurative language, including simile, metaphor, pun, symbolism and personification. Writing focuses on analysis and interpretation of multiple ideas and perspectives to extend thinking through writing. Persuasive writing is a continued emphasis in preparation for the Utah Basic Skills Test. Skills in analytical evaluation and assessment of writing are further nuanced, and editing skills are specific and clearly delineated. Inquiry skills are focused on synthesizing information in preparation for presenting research results. State Code: 06020000050|
|English 11||1,2,3,4||Melissa Watersfirstname.lastname@example.org||52310|
|Eleventh graders are seeking greater and greater independence. Where they are demanding more autonomy and respect as adults, they are still maturing and reaching for adulthood. The Utah Core focuses on reading and writing experiences that are developmentally appropriate. Vocabulary instruction looks at the cultural and contextual meanings of words. Reading instruction continues to offer young adults opportunities for improvement through growing sophistication in interaction with a variety of texts. Writing moves to analysis and interpretation of multiple ideas and perspectives to extend thinking and demands synthesizing of ideas to form conclusions and recommend actions. Analytical evaluation and assessment of writing are further nuanced, and editing skills are more sophisticated and specifically and clearly delineated. Inquiry skills are focused on synthesizing information in preparation for presenting research results. Approved for the Regents Scholarship. State Code: 06020000060|

|Math 3||1,2,3,4||Nicole Carrollemail@example.com|
|This course synthesizes previous mathematical learning in four focused areas of instruction. First, students relate visual displays and summary statistics to various types of data and to probability distributions with a focus on drawing conclusions from the data. Then, students embark on an in-depth study of polynomial, rational, and radical functions, drawing on concepts of integers and number properties to understand polynomial operations and the combination of functions through operations. This section of instruction builds to the Fundamental Theorem of Algebra. Students then expand the study of right-triangle trigonometry they began in Mathematics II to include non-right triangles, developing the Laws of Sines and Cosines. Finally, students model an array of real-world situations with all the types of functions they have studied, including work with logarithms to solve exponential equations. As they synthesize and generalize what they have learned about a variety of function families, students appreciate the usefulness and relevance of mathematics in the real world.
