Class Experience

Students will learn the 5 Text Structures and how to determine the Text Structure of a passage.  
I have a Bachelor of Arts in Elementary Education and have been a teacher for 19 years.  I specifically have taught 3rd-5th ELA for 16 years.  I trained in Brain Based strategies for 5 years and utilized those strategies in my classroom for 9 years.  Over the past 19 years, I have completed hundreds of hours of Professional Development and research in areas such as: Reading Intervention, Student Growth and Achievement, and Learning Disabilities. 
There is no HW, however, students are encouraged to share what they learned in class with their parents/caregivers.
There will be a new PDF available for download before each class. Colored Pencils are needed as well.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
1 hour 50 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
