Welcome to the Around the World Summer Reading Club! I am so glad you are here. Please join me on a summer reading adventure where we will discover (and rediscover!) books that spotlight different cultures and places from around the world. I look forward to running a summer reading club that is focused on joyful discussion and learning through books, interesting videos, art projects, and games. Every class is a little different but every week we will flow through: 1. An independent...
This class is taught in English.
Students will learn about different people and places from around the world through stories, discussion, and extension activities.
As with any class that deals with world cultures and perspectives, we may occasionally touch on life experiences that are very different from our own. This may include countries or people that have dealt with or are actively combating discrimination, war, or political unrest. My credentialing is in social sciences from North Park University. I have also been a social studies teacher since 2010 in an urban setting- both in schools and museums. I continue my personal sensitivity training every year so that I can show up fully for the students and families I serve. When relevant and prompted through student-led inquiry, I only read and source material from first-hand perspectives or from people who are intimately connected to the topic at hand. For sensitivity reasons, we will not be doing family tree projects. This class is taught with joy and the perspective that everybody's family, origin story, and beliefs are an important and contributing part of our wonderful world.
Caregivers are asked to encourage their readers to pick up books, magazines, and audiobooks on a weekly basis.
3 files available upon enrollmentReaders are encouraged to print out and use the summer reading logs. All other extension activity supplies are listed out by book in a handout that is attached to the welcome message upon registration.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
40 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
Several of our books gently touch on sensitive history and discrimination. When we read stories that include these elements, I will leave the last 5-10 minutes of class to answer student questions. If you would like to preview the books before they are read in class so that you can prepare your student, I can gladly send you links or information.
