Class Experience

I am a New York State certified classroom teacher, certified in English Language Arts and Students with Disabilities.
I have over 12 years of classroom teaching experience.
Students will read approximately 80 pages per week (depending on the length of individual chapters). They will complete some activities each week independently, including questions about the reading, vocabulary activities, and writing assignments.
Hard copy or digital copy of two novels:
"Fish In A Tree" (by Lynda Hunt) and "The War That Saved My Life" (by Kimberly Brubaker Bradley)
Printables and downloadables as posted weekly in the Classroom.
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
45 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
A girl insults other kids at school often, calling them "losers" or "freaks." Other name-calling includes "dumb" and "stupid." Multiple insults about clothing, parents' income, other students' abilities or intelligence.
Some fighting between kids.
"Fish In A Tree" (by Lynda Hunt) and "The War That Saved My Life" (by Kimberly Brubaker Bradley)
