Description

Class Experience

1.) Students will use comprehension strategies flexibly as they read the literary text "Fish In A Tree". 
2.) Students will analyze themes, conflict and elements of plot throughout the text and demonstrate their understanding through summarizing and paraphrasing.  
I have been teaching English Language Arts to middle school and high school students for the past 12 years.  In addition, I have a Masters degree in Teaching with a concentration in English Language Arts and History.  Also, I am a published author and beta writer for other published authors in both academic writing and fiction writing.
There are 320 pages in the book, so each student will be required to read approx. 100 pages between each class meeting time and come prepared to discuss.  Each week, we will also be discussing specific elements of plot, themes, conflict or literary devices.  Students will be asked to find and come prepared to discuss those elements when they attend the next class.  
Each student will need to purchase a copy of the book "Fish In A Tree" By: Lynda Mullay Hunt. In addition, I would recommend students have highlighters, pen/pencil, paper, and sticky notes. Also, students should have a secondary device to participate in the weekly Gim Kit game.
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
45 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
