Description

Class Experience

Students will improve their understanding of the colonial time period through diving into a historical fiction novel. 
I graduated from Southeastern Louisiana University in 2015 with a degree in Early Childhood Education (PreK-3). I've spent the last 5 years teaching in a private school setting, and it's been such an honor to be part of training students to have strong character and a life-long love of learning. 
Students may want to finish reading the books at home if we don't get through a whole book each week. 
Felicity Merriman books (optional) + Very Funny, Elizabeth!
35 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
Marcus is enslaved to Mr. Merriman (Felicity's father) and works in his shop. (This briefly brings up the topic of slavery, which was common in that time period. Students will discuss how employeers should treat employees with dignity and respect.) 
Jiggy Nye is cruel and abusive towards Penny, a horse Felicity loves. Felicity notices that the horse has not been well cared for by Mr. Nye. Mr. Nye grabs Felicity and calls her a "sly, red-headed chit" and tells her to stay away from his horse. (This brings up the topic of animal abuse. We will briefly talk about our responsibility to care for animals, rather than hurting them). 
Felicity lies to her parents and sneaks out at night to visit Penny. She eventually sets Mr. Nye's horse free without his permission. (This brings up the topics of safety, respect for adults, and ownership - all of which will be briefly addressed in class. Students will be asked to share what Felicity could have done to help Penny.)
Ben, Mr. Merriman's apprentice, wants to become a Patriot because he believes the king's taxes are not fair. He breaks his promise to Felicity's father in order to run away and join the the army. Grandfather is a staunch Loyalist. When Ben is injured, Felicity sneaks out to help him. Felicity eventually convinces Ben to come back and finish his apprenticeship. (This brings up the topic of the Revolutionary War, which will be briefly discussed. Students will be encouraged to share their opinion on whether it was right for Ben to leave his apprenticeship.)
