Description

Class Experience

I have 25 years of experience teaching English/language arts, and writing at a variety of grade levels.
A reading assignment will be due each Monday.  Learners will be asked to read an average of about 45 pages per week. 
A writing assignment will be given each week. Learners will keep their work on a google doc that I will provide.
Sign of the Beaver by Elizabeth George Speare Hound Dog True by Linda Urban Front Desk by Kelly Yang
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
50 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
1. We will refer to two short stories in this class. Your learner may choose the story that appeals to them more, or they may choose to read both. They are both well-known stories that you can find easily online. I recommend searching for a pdf version of each story and, if possible, printing the story out. 
Studies show that we learn better and remember more when we read from a physical copy (compared to an electronic copy). The stories are
"The Jacket" by Gary Soto
"The White Umbrella" by Gish Jen
For your convenience, I will also send links to pdfs of these stories in the Welcome Message.
2. Learners will also be using the Internet as a research tool outside of class.
3. We will read the following novels: Sign of the Beaver by Elizabeth George Speare, Hound Dog True by Linda Urban, and Front Desk by Kelly Yang. Books may be checked out from the library or purchased.  Ebooks are allowed.
