Description

Class Experience

Unit 2 of Third Grade English Language Arts uses fables, folktales and myths from around the world and throughout time 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 past, present and future verb tenses, subject/verb agreement, and comparative and superlative adjectives and adverbs. There are weekly spelling word lists for learners to practice and a weekly spelling quiz. There are also weekly writing assignments and journal prompts with students practicing opinion writing, storytelling, poetry, dialogue, using a dictionary and more. 
I have bachelor’s degrees in English, journalism, and political science, and am currently a master’s student in American history. I was a newspaper editor and reporter for 15 years, director of a social justice center for three years, and have been teaching English Language Arts, English As a Second Language, and social studies for the past five years. I am currently co-director of the Foster Woods Folk School.
This flex class is for learners who just want to practice their English Language Arts Skills, as well as students who want to get a letter of competition. For learners who are just practicing skills, homework is optional but highly recommended. For those learners seeking a letter of completion, there is 4 hours of homework to be completed each week. Homework includes a weekly reading and writing assignment, as well as worksheets, online quizzes and other learning projects.

As we study literature, in particular the traditional fables and folktales, students will engage with stories from different cultures, religions, and times. Some of these stories may contain depictions of violence. 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. 
I will provide PDF readers for materials covered in Units 2.
