This week, online summer classes began. Although there was some confusion added to the beginning of my registration and the start of class, I believe now I am squared away with my classes and I plan to be taking journalism and SAT prep.
These classes are to be taken through NCVPS, or North Carolina Virtual Public School, and will not be counted for my real life grades, as it goes against school policy because not everyone has a computer and internet access.
I began work on my journalism class. In the beginning, you must take an introductory assignment to help you understand the program that the class is set up on — which in my opinion takes way longer than it should and I would rather the information be spread out as we need it. It took me an hour to watch all embedded videos and audios that described functions of the program that I am unsure as to if we will actually use them in class.
The most worry I have is the SAT prep class, as math is my worst subject and I tend to find it the least enjoyable. Hopefully, these summer classes will work out and I will have learned some new material.
