Description

Class Experience

Students will improve their fluency and comprehension skills.
Students will read approximately 20 pages, answer a discussion question, and work with a graphic organizer.
Students will need the book, Save Me a Seat by Gita Varadarajan.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
Discussion questions are an informal assessment. There is one final writing response on the last class which is a formal assessment. 
55 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
This book brings up topics such as bullying as well as cultural diversity. I will discuss with learners how important it is to be kind and turn this into a teaching lesson. I will let them openly discuss any moments in their lives that relate to this and explain how I handled it as a teacher in the public schools. I will not go too much into details about the negatives and focus mostly on how to reflect and be a good person.
Students will need the book, Save Me a Seat by Gita Varadarajan.
