Students will read three chapters of this accessible graphic novel in between sessions. Students will respond to what they read using graphic...

Students are responsible for reading three chapters of this easy to read illustrated novel in between class sessions and filling out a reading response sheet.
"It's Halloween, I'm Turning Green" by Dan Gutman is required for this class. Students may use e-books, hardcopy and paperbacks, or audiobooks to read and comprehend the text. Handouts will be uploaded in into the Outschool classroom before some sessions. Paper, markers or colored pencils, and pens or pencils are great to have on hand for class activities. Post-It notes are recommended for the last class session. Students are invited to wear their Halloween costume to the last class session as well as bringing a Halloween treat to eat during our activity time if they wish.
Narrative Evaluation is available upon request. Students taking the course for homeschool credit can submit a portfolio of class work for evaluation and feedback.
1 hour 30 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
In our class we will review using Kahoot! and may use collaborative Google Docs to share our ideas.
Students will need their own copy of "It's Halloween, I'm Turning Green" by Dan Gutman. Students are welcome to read the book in hard copy or on e-book or audio book. Text to Speech accompanied by reading can be a good strategy for dyslexic learners as enlarging the print in e-book format.
