Description

Class Experience

This class is taught in English.
I am a certified middle school teacher and personal tutor with classroom teaching experience. I also completed a Bachelor's in Secondary English Education, grades 7-12 and a Master's in Curriculum and Instruction.
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 if the student would like feedback. 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 4.
1. A copy of the book "Fever 1793 by Laurie Halse Anderson– for the Novel Study Unit which begins in Week 3 of the course 2. PDF copies of all the poetry 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.
No live meetings, and an estimated 2 - 4 hours per week outside of class.
In the teleplay "The Monsters Are Due On Maple Street" one character shoots another out of fear, but the scene is not graphic or involved. 

The book "Fever 1793" is about the yellow fever epidemic in Philadelphia. There are some scenes of death and sickness. 

We will be using several third-party platforms in the class. 
Nearpod (nearpod.com)- Students will NOT have to create an account for Nearpod. Nearpod allows teachers to make PowerPoint presentations interactive where the learner can type answers, drag and drop items around the screen, and play games to learn the information. Learners will be able to access the activity via a link that I share. Screengrabs or videos of information shared on Nearpod may be included in the class material. 

Padlet (padlet.com) - Students will NOT have to create an account for Padlet. Padlet is a virtual bulletin board where learners can write a response to material, or even share graphics. Learners will be able to access the activity via a link that I share. Screengrabs or videos of information on Padlet may be included in the class material. 

Edpuzzle (edpuzzle.com) - Students will NOT have to create an account for Edpuzzle. Edpuzzle is a tool that allows teachers to pause a video at specific points so a question can be asked on the screen. The video will progress once the student answers the question. Students will be able to access the activity via a link that I share. Screengrabs or videos of information on Edpuzzle may be included in the class material. 

This course contains videos that I create. I house them on a hidden playlist on YouTube. Any YouTube videos used in this course are created by me and focus on course content.
