Description

Class Experience

Students will analyze the novels "Wonder," "augie & me," and "White Bird" through weekly vocabulary and discussion questions. 

Students will practice expressing personal opinions, forming questions and responses, and providing feedback in an academic setting.

Students will learn the Hero's Journey and fill out Auggie's Hero Journey for "Wonder." 

Students will also create a character web for four characters. They will study setting, tone, mood, and much more.
Students will be assigned portions of the novels to read each week and questions and vocabulary related to that week's assigned reading.

Students will need to watch the movie "Wonder" before the last week of the course to answer questions and be part of a class discussion. 
Students will need to have a physical, digital, or audio copy of the books Wonder, augie & me, and White Bird. They will also need to be able to watch the movie Wonder before the last class. At this time, no streaming service has the movie, but you can rent/buy from Apple TV or Amazon Prime. The movie is rated PG.
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
Each week, there will be 100 points assigned. Students earn these points by watching the weekly video, answering questions, finishing their vocabulary, and participating in the classroom discussion. 
No live meetings, and an estimated 2 - 4 hours per week outside of class.
The "Wonder" books are amazing, but they do deal with the following triggers:
    Ableism
    Disfigurmisia
    Suicide joke
    Surgery mentioned
    Bullying (theme)
    The Holocaust (White Bird)
    Death (White Bird)

These will all be talked about and handled in an age appropriate manner during our discussions. If you or your students have any questions or concerns, please reach out to me anytime. I will respond ASAP.

About Me

Looking back on my early years of learning, what I remember most are the subjects I enjoyed, teachers who made learning fun, and getting to study what I wanted. This is what I love about homeschooling my kids. I get to teach them what they are...
