Post Grad Curriculum

Post Grad Curriculum

This new program is mandatory for all post-grad students.

Each student will be assigned or can ask a teacher to mentor their PG year. Each month will consist of a seminar to introduce the unit of study (video taped). The module will be found on Everest EOLC with appropriate tasks and direction. An individual recap meeting takes place with the student and the mentor when the activity is finished. The student is responsible to organize and schedule all meetings. The mentor is responsible to guide the student and report to the PG coordinator.
