Description

Class Experience

To expand their creativity and  create stories they will love to share. 
My name is Mrs. Bannert. I am a certified teacher. I have a Masters in Education. For the past five years I have taught English in a public school setting and for the past three years I have taught English in an online format. I love to write and I love sharing my passion with others. 
If learners do not complete their stories they may do so after class and submit it to me for private one on one feedback if they wish. 
Students will need paper and a writing utensil or students may type their story if they choose
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
45 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
- Kind speech is a must in my classroom at all times. My classroom is a safe space for learners to share their writing. I can not help learners improve if I do not hear or see their writing. If at any time a learner is negative towards another student they will immediately be removed from that days lesson and their parent/ guardian emailed. If the behavior continues they will be removed from the course entirely. My class must remain a safe place for all learners at all times.

- While the students are writing they are muted to allow all learners time to focus. During this time I am messaging privately with learners helping those who need extra assistance or those who ask for extra help. I also take this time to send feedback to any learner who shares their story with the class or with me privately during class time. 

- Learners are not required to share their writing but it is how I can help them improve on a one on one basis. They have many options on ways to share if they choose. They can share their story out loud with the class, they can send it to me privately in the chat box, or they can send it to me after class in Outschool. 

- If at any time a learner is stuck and does not know what to write about they are asked to reach out to me via chat box or by simply asking. I do not want them just sitting there stuck and not writing. This is what I am here for, to help, but I can not read minds (especially if their camera is off) and can not see their papers to know when they are stuck so communication is key. 

- During the learners very first class with me, I try my best to encourage learners but not give them step by steps instructions on how to write their papers so I can truly gauge where they are and where I can assist them. 

- Please note I work diligently to give students feedback as fast as possible. I ask for patience as I read over your learners work and provide feedback. My goal is to provide detailed feedback that is specific to each learner and their writing. When multiple learners submit their writing at the same time I do go in order of submissions. I ask for a four day grace period from when your learner submits their work to when I give them feedback. If a student has shared their work in class I do give them feedback that they can use right then to improve their writing (This in-class feedback is not as detailed)
