Class Experience

This class is taught in English.
Students will develop their language skills by using several figurative language techniques in comics developed using the Pixton application. 
I have been teaching for over 20 years and enjoy watching students' growth in learning!
Homework is assigned weekly and students will be completing at least one comic strip each week. 
It will be very helpful to have the ability to work from two devices during class, two screens, or the ability to move between two tabs.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
Students will upload their comic strips to a shared document in class each week for feedback, discussion, and encouragement.
55 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
This class uses the educational application of Pixton with permission from the Pixton company.  Pixton is an educational application that will be accessed through a class account.  Students have access to characters, backgrounds, and more.  There is no student or teacher interaction in the Pixton application, but students will be able to use the features of the application for their comic creations to share back into the classroom with other students.  You can find out more about Pixton at
All material will be provided by the teacher: written assignment details and a class code to log in through an educator account to Pixton for comic creation.
