Carol Burns PhD, ACE Educator
Come travel back in time with Jack, Annie, Ms. Carol and friends in this exciting, ongoing, once a week book club! Each week, we will travel back in time together as we have fun with friends discussing a Magic Tree House book!
US Grade Kindergarten - 3
Travel back in time with Jack, Annie, Ms. Carol, and friends! In this exciting, adventurous book club we will meet once a week to discuss the Magic Tree House books in order. Each book stands alone, so students can choose to join us for their favorite book, or stay for all of the fun! Books will be read ahead of time, before class. There are ten chapters in each book. The books are also available as audiobooks! All of class time will be dedicated to discussing the books, playing fun games...
Homework OfferedStudents will read or listen to the book BEFORE class!
1 - 2 hours per week outside of class
Students will need the Magic Tree House book we are discussing that week. The book must be read or listened to BEFORE class. Students can use their own books, library books, ebooks, or even listen to the audio books. If listening to the audiobooks, it is highly recommended that student reads aloud to develop their own reading comprehension and competency.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
Please be aware that a few Magic Tree House books require parental guidance. These books are “Thanksgiving on Thursday*, “Buffalo Before Breakfast*, and “Shadow of the Shark*. These books require critical analysis and the following areas of concern will be addressed in class: inaccurate descriptions of historical events, racism, stereotypes, cultural inaccuracies, harmful and inaccurate descriptions of Native Americans, racist/stereotypical imagery, and biased perspectives. Teacher Carol has a PhD in pedagogy and history, with a Master’s in Cultural Studies. One of my core values is to teach the true and accurate version of history I was not taught as a child. Racism or racial stereotypes is never acceptable to me, and neither is a white-washed version of American History.
