Class Experience

This course will encourage the love of reading, and assist students to recognize and discuss literary elements, literary devices, become familiar with the basics about the author, gain an understanding of the book's characters and their traits, increase content vocabulary, learn how to interact in a discussion board setting, and more.
When I was growing up, we traveled a lot, and I always looked forward to a new trip because my mother would buy a new stack of books for me.  I would sit for hours in the back seat of our car and read.  Whenever I ran out of books to read, I would read the billboards and every highway sign very loudly.   That was rather tedious for my parents, so I'm sure that's why they always made sure I had plenty of books to read!

Combine my love of reading with my experience as a reading teacher and my masters in Curriculum and Instruction, and I believe you'll find that I'm prepared and pumped-up to help your student's reading experience be the best it can be!
Students will need to read the weekly chapter assignments by Thursday in order to provide initial responses to discussion board questions. Secondary responses to other students (at least two) or the teacher will be due by Friday. The culminating project will be due on Thursday of the final week
Students will need to either borrow the book, "Because of Winn-Dixie" (Kate DiCamillo) from the library or purchase a copy. Amazon: https://www.amazon.com/Because-Winn-Dixie-Kate-DiCamillo/dp/0763680869/ref=sr_1_1?keywords=because+of+winn-dixie&qid=1563425017&s=gateway&sr=8-1
