Directed Reading in Parenting and Child Development

Our Directed Reading in Parenting and Child Development course gives students the freedom to choose what they read and how they apply it. Students will read and reflect upon primary works in parenting and child development.

Over the course of a year, students will read four books or equivalents on child basics, parenting, baby healthcare, quality childcare, and learning readiness. The application of learning will be displayed through project-based activities and open discussion forums with assigned Learning Coaches.

What is the Teen Parent Cooking Elective Course?
Our Cooking course uses project-based learning to give you credit for the nutritious meals you cook each day for you and your family. You are given the freedom to explore cooking skills, recipes, and meal ideas – either as an individual or in a group. Over the course of a year, you will prepare 26 meals while documenting your process in a 3-5-minute video submission submitted every two weeks.
Parenting and Child Development Practicum

Our Parenting and Child Development Practicum course allows you to earn credit for being your child’s first teacher. You earn credit for applying knowledge learned about parenting and child development during everyday moments. Through bi-weekly video submission you will be graded on positive parent-child interactions; such as talking to your child, engaging, playing, and parenting techniques.

It is important to note that the Practicum course is not meant to be on-the-job training or an apprenticeship, but is rather an educational process of guided experiential learning designed for your personal growth as both a student and a parent.
