Class experience

US Grade 4
Unit 1 of Fourth Grade English Language Arts uses Lynne Kelly’s novel Song for a Whale 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 theme, describe characters and settings, draw inferences from the text, and compare the point of view of different characters. There is a strong focus on grammar, which includes subject-verb agreement, verb tenses, adjective and adverb usage. There are weekly spelling word lists for learners to practice and a weekly spelling quiz. There are also weekly writing assignments with students practicing opinion writing, letter writing, poetry, dialogue, and using reference materials for research. 
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.
