Literature & English Language Arts; Fall & Spring Semesters. Weekly short stories & real world passages; this academic reading analysis class builds confidence during middle school and preps for high school; I'll present a valuable blend of genres, critical thinking skills, test-taking strategies, discussion, and a touch of response writing (short answer).

Class experience

US Grade 7 - 8
My goal is to create a connection between prior knowledge, new knowledge, literary text, and the real world. Aside from improving reading comprehension, developing analytical skills, and encouraging higher-order thinking, I want my students to be confident with their interpretations and responses. 
Homework Offered
Students may have some light reading and writing outside of the classroom.
Assessments Offered
My small group teaching style allows me to gauge my students' learning during each session. However, on occasion, I will give some formalized assessments through Google Forms and other platforms.
Grades Offered
Keep handy for any occasional notes.
~ Pencil and paper.
~ A traditional composition book. 
~ Digital docs are fine too.

*Gel pens, skinny markers, highlighters, and sticky notes are a great option for the more creative note taker.
Some texts may contain biblical allusions. These lessons will focus on text evidence and how allusions are used by authors to make a point. Therefore, I may need to reference and explain the main idea that the author is alluding to; the focus will be on literary analysis.
I use a variety of platforms in my teaching sessions. However, all links and materials will be provided through the Outschool Classroom. On occasion, I do use Google Forms, Google Slides, Kahoot, Quizizz, Quizlet, FlipGrid, and Padlet.
