Class Experience

This class is taught in English.
This course will motivate, challenge, and celebrate student reading. The goal of Chapter Book Battle Camp is to increase reading comprehension skills, acknowledge student perseverance and effort, provide good sportsmanship practice, and encourage individual creativity.
I am an avid reader who truly has a gift for encouraging others (students and adults alike!) to fall in love with reading. I have a B. A. in Education, and I'm an award-winning certified teacher in Texas. I have eleven years of teaching experience and have taught all subjects.
Students are expected to read individually, with a family member, or by listening to the audiobook version of the title outside of class for approximately 1-4 hours to finish the assigned chapter book prior to each class meeting. Students will be asked to read a total of nine chapter books over the course of five weeks. 

Students will have the opportunity to create an optional artistic representation of their choice to illustrate one scene from the assigned book outside of class.

In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
Student reading comprehension progress is informally assessed during literature circle discussions and optional discussion board posts. Student creativity is informally assessed by the teacher throughout the course. The teacher will utilize individual students' scores from a quiz-type game and data analysis to assess reading comprehension ability ten different times throughout Chapter Book Battle Club.
45 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 2 - 4 hours per week outside of class.
Some students and parents may be sensitive to rude dialogue, slight potty humor, or uncomfortable situations described in the children's books. Spoiler alert: In Hatchet, the character witnesses someone he doesn’t know have a heart attack.
