Book lover, home educator (8 students over 22 years. . .and counting!), 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. I will provide optional activities to download and enjoy. We can "bring and brag" our projects each week!
Supply list: Suggested books are listed at my site, but you can acquire whichever edition of The Shakespeare Stealer that works for you. Beg, borrow, or buy! https://www.kendrafletcher.com/outschool-courses I will also provide a very easy-to-acquire list of supplies for small projects each week. You should have everything on hand—I'm a mom, too, and I know how difficult it can be to find obscure supplies, so I choose projects that are easy for you to put together.
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.
