Description

Class Experience

Unit 1 of Third Grade English Language Arts uses E.B. White’s classic novel Charlotte’s Web to teach common core standards, covering literature, foundational skills, writing, speaking and listening. Students practice reading for fluency, comprehension and vocabulary. They will learn to look for the central message, lesson or moral of the story. There is a strong focus on grammar, which includes learning parts of speech (noun, pronoun, verb, adverb, adjective), rules of capitalization, subject-verb agreement, punctuation and more. 
I am currently enrolled in my final course through the Gettysburg College-Gilder Lehrman Institute of American History master of arts in American history program. In addition, I have bachelor of arts degrees in English, journalism, and political science. I was the director of a social justice center for three years during which time I routinely taught about and facilitated conversations about historical and current political events for both teen and adults participants. Before that, I was a newspaper editor and reporter for 15 years. I have been teaching history, social studies, and English Language Arts classes for the past five years. I am currently lead teacher at The Foster Woods Folk School, which focuses on education, storytelling, and the arts within an ecosocial justice framework aimed at celebrating and improving our connections as a global community of human and non-human earthlings. In this role, I work with learners of all ages with a primary focus of working with learners in grades three through 12.  
This flex class is for learners who want to practice their English Language Arts Skills, as well as students who want to get a letter of competition. For those learners seeking a final grade and/or letter of completion, there is about four hours of homework to be completed each week. Homework includes reading and writing assignments, as well as worksheets, quizzes and other learning projects.

The final grade is based on the average of the five weekly grades. The weekly grade is determined in the following way: 
-- Reading Quiz: 20 Points

No live meetings, and an estimated 4+ hours per week outside of class.
Our novel study, “Charlotte’s Web,” deals with the slaughter of animals, death, and loss. All subjects and topics will be covered in a manner that is as age-appropriate as possible, but some learners may be especially sensitive to these topics. 
Students will need either a paper or digital copy of E.B. White’s “Charlotte’s Web.”
