THE INDEPENDENT STUDY
The independent study project is where a teacher assigns components of a course to students to complete independently, but under the supervision of the teacher. Students are excused from attending some classes in a course in order to study independently. The classroom teacher will suggest resources, evaluate achievement, and ensure the total work involved is equivalent to the expected time scheduled for the course. Students must demonstrate their achievement of the overall curriculum expectations of the course through the completion of the independent study project. Torah High requires students in all classes to complete an independent study project under the supervision of their classroom teacher. The cumulative application project combines content and course expectations with Jewish studies principles and ethics. The completion of the independent study project demonstrates student achievement of the various course curriculum expectations.
