Students will complete reading assignments outside of the class, though we will read segments together during our discussions. In addition to reading assignments for home work, there are writing assignments, higher-level comprehension questions, and a creative final project. We will have lectures, group discussions, group work, Socratic seminars, explicit grammar instruction, and vocabulary in context. I incorporate plenty of time for students to talk and ask questions, as I believe this...
Students will be able to: ~identify the genre of a text ~identity the seven plot elements ~identify and discuss the various elements of character development ~identify tone and mood using citations from the text ~make inferences from the text using correct citations from the text ~identify various literary devices and elements and analyze their impact on the plot and character development ~identify the internal and external conflicts various characters experience ~identify and differentiate between types of conflict: man vs, man/man vs. self/man vs. nature ~write brief summaries of specific passages of the text ~compare and contrast characters in a text and in multiple texts ~identify the narrator's point of view (perspective) first, second, or third person ~identify the topic and theme of a text ~evaluate the validity of a thesis in a non-fiction text ~write essay responses to higher-level comprehension questions about a text
I am a certified English Language Arts teacher with 23 years of teaching experience. I approach sensitive topics in texts by modeling sensitivity and maturity during open discussions with students.
Students will have homework assignments after each class consisting of a reading assignment and a writing assignment. They will also have a creative final project, such as a one-pager, a poster, a painting, a writing, etc.
~the ability to print out various handouts provided by teacher, or student may draw/write/copy the handouts (graphic organizers) on their own paper ~highlighter/pencil for annotating (or familiarity with digital annotation tools if using digital copy of text) ~notebook for taking notes (or digital method of note-taking) ~misc. items as needed based on student's choice for final project (poster board, markers, other art supplies)
I respect the opinions each student/family has about the pros/cons of grading. Families may choose to have no grade given for the class/course or to have a grade given based on the following: ~attendance 10% ~participation (discussions and completion of class work in order to be an active participant in each class meeting) 35% ~homework 35% ~final project 20%
2 hours per week in class, and an estimated 2 - 4 hours per week outside of class.
Students will need a hard copy, or digital copy, of the novel listed above to read and annotate. I will give students digital access to the poems, short stories, and essays/articles we read.
