Class Experience

Literature analysis, vocabulary reinforcement, study skills, keeping to an assigned reading schedule, and social skills.
Book lover, home educator (8 students over 25 years!), author, and story-hungry Outschool teacher. One of my greatest joys is seeing your learners spark an interest in great literature through our discussions together!
The only required homework is to read the chapters assigned each week. We will do creative projects to share with each other in our "bring and brag" portion of each class. I will also provide optional activities to download and enjoy. 
You can acquire whichever edition of 𝘉𝘺 𝘵𝘩𝘦 𝘎𝘳𝘦𝘢𝘵 𝘏𝘰𝘳𝘯 𝘚𝘱𝘰𝘰𝘯! works for you. Beg, borrow, or buy!
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
45 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
As with all of my classes, if there is negative representation of traditionally marginalized groups, we will discuss how the author “got it wrong.” In By the Great Horn Spoon, there are stereotypes of Native Americans in California and Chinese immigrants. Where necessary, we will have conversations about why these stereotypes are not accurate and how they make us think differently about a population. I also lead the discussion into ways in which marginalized groups have made significant and positive contributions to our society, and to the settling of California as a state in particular. 

Every student is valuable, every human experience worth being heard from the perspective of their own stories. Let’s lead the way to break down the barriers!
