[Athen] Sub-lists

Hi Colleagues,
In working with a screen reader user, she expressed confusion about a
sub-list. JAWS just read "list of 5 items" but before it reached the end of
those 5 items, it read "list of 1 item". She thought something was wrong
because it hadn't read all of the five items. Is there a better way to mark
this up so it's obvious the list of 1 item is a sub-list?
I asked if she could tell it was a sub-list because it hadn't reached the
end of the 5 items yet, but she was more inclined to not believe the "list
of 5 items" was correct.

Here's the list:

- Homework Sets
- Section 1_2
- Passwork/Email
- Grades
