Description

Class Experience

I am a certified middle school teacher with classroom teaching experience. I also completed a Bachelor's in Secondary English Education, grades 7-12. 
Homework assignments can include but are not limited to, essays, written journal entries, analyses, readings, presentations, and text annotation.

Students should plan to spend 1-2 hours per week outside of class to complete assignments.
All homework assignments are due every Friday by 10 pm EST. I provide feedback on every assignment and will grade assignments upon request.

Students should read 20-40 pages a night, depending on the level of the student. The book we are reading has 30 chapters, which averages to reading 5 chapters a week during Unit 3.
1. A copy of the book "The Westing Game" by Ellen Raskin – for the Novel Study Unit which begins in Week 11 of the course 2. PDF copies of all the short stories and other readings will be provided by the teacher or the student will be told where to find them online
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
All learners will receive written feedback from the teacher for all assignments. If you would like a letter grade for assignments and the class, please contact me and I will provide it.
2 hours per week in class, and an estimated 2 - 4 hours per week outside of class.
The short story "The Most Dangerous Game" involves characters hunting one another in the jungle, which may be alarming for some. The short story is typically taught because it offers excellent examples of setting, how setting sets the mood in the story, strong vocabulary, and elements of suspense.

The short story "The Veldt" takes place in the future when a "smart house" becomes a little too smart and starts attacking the family that lives there. The short story is typically taught as an example of science fiction and also offers lessons on imagery, figurative language, and irony.

Students will use these third-party tools. The students will have to create an account for Padlet at Padlet.com. However, the slides and presentations made on the other platforms will be shared with students either via a code or link. In some classes, we will work through presentations on these platforms via screenshare. The tools are:
- Padlet (student must create a free account at Padlet.com)
- EdPuzzle (students do not need to create an account)
- Nearpod (students do not need to create an account)
-	A copy of the book "The Westing Game" by Ellen Raskin – for the Novel Study Unit which begins in Week 11 of the course
-	Commonlit.com
