Description

Class Experience

Students will expand their comprehension skills as well as their vocabulary, while reading a fun fantasy novel.
I am certified to teach English Language Arts for grades 6-12 in the state of Michigan, and I am also considered highly qualified in the state.
Each week students will be asked to read two chapters in the book. Along with those readings students will be asked to complete comprehension questions and the character chart, uploading their copy to the Outschool Classroom. All homework is outlined in the course description and reminders will be given each week.
 1 file available upon enrollment
Artemis Fowl by Eoin Colfer book (digital or physical copy), as well as the ability to either print, scan and upload weekly questions and character chart completion, or the ability to complete weekly assignments digitally and upload them. These documents will be uploaded each week to the Outschool Classroom.
Learners will be assessed through their chapter questions and the character chart, as well as through informal assessments during class discussion.
If course credit is needed for homeschooling purposes, please make arrangements for that before classes begin. A final grade for the course will be calculated for these purposes.
45 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
According to CommonSenseMedia.com, "Parents need to know that Artemis Fowl is the start of a best-selling series named after a 12-year-old millionaire criminal mastermind who takes on the race of fairies to get their gold. Because of the sophisticated and witty writing style and the complex characters, this is a great choice for adult fantasy fans to read along with kids. Readers on the younger side will dig in for the action. There's plenty of it near the end. A fight with a troll is quite gory: It's a mace and lots of bullets against a hungry behemoth with horns and claws. Earlier in the story there's a kidnapping, some fistfights, explosions, and tranquilizers used. Artemis' bodyguard, Butler, tries not to kill his fairy adversaries. There's some talk about why Artemis is left to his own devices: His father was lost in a boat explosion and feared dead, and afterward his mother stays in her room with a mental illness. Expect a fair amount of cigar smoking by the fairy commander and some drinking. While you're reading along with kids, this book is a great opportunity to talk about antiheroes such as Artemis. He's driven by power and money, and he's devious and sometimes cruel, but there's definitely good there -- just enough that readers may find themselves rooting for him and the fairies at the same time."
