Course Syllabus


Course Description: The North Carolina Teacher Cadet Program is designed to provide the opportunity for high school students considering the field of education with an introduction to the careers involved. Students will receive instruction in several areas of education, complete classroom observations, student teach in multiple field experiences, and complete many hands-on projects designed to synthesize course content. As such, Cadets must be prepared to perform at a college level by attending class, completing projects and portfolios on time, and participating actively in classroom discussion.

“Canvas: The majority of assignments not completed on paper must be submitted on our learning platform,  Canvas.  Assignments can be submitted a variety of ways including, uploading files, typing into text boxes, and sharing Google documents/presentations.  Students will be shown how to submit assignments on Canvas as needed.  Individual assignments will indicate which method of submission on Canvas is expected.  If students need a refresher or have questions, they can access the Canvas Student Guide for specific instructions.  It is the student's responsibility to ensure assignments are submitted on time and to contact the instructor if there is a problem. Please note that student activity is logged while in Canvas so instructors will be able to see if the student opened the assignment, if there was any activity including a log of student activities during on-line tests and quizzes.  Students are not allowed to leave the testing window during assessments.  Doing so is considered cheating and will be handled as set forth in the Porter Ridge HS handbook.

NOTICE: Although many assignments are submitted and graded in our learning platform, Canvas, the "final" grades shown may not be properly weighted and do not contain assignments that were not graded in Canvas.  For the student's official grades, please continue to access the parent portal through Powerschool. Login information should be the same as last year. If you need assistance accessing the parent portal, please contact the school.”
