Class experience

US Grade 6 - 9
Students will:
-understand and review biographical information about a variety of authors and the time period they lived
-identify the emotions revealed in work
-read short stories and be able to summarize basic elements (plot, characters, setting, perspective)
-define the meaning of words in the story
-comprehend the story's events through critical thinking questions
-share ideas and participate in classroom discussions or debates
As mentioned above, I plan to develop class discussions and assignments that promote learning through engagement with sensitive topics. Students will be encouraged to complete required work that may be uncomfortable, grim, offensive, and disturbing. Students will be expected to recognize the diversity of opinions and backgrounds of their classmates. Although violence will occur in some stories, the emphasis will be on the historical context or moral of the story.  Being a public school teacher at a trauma-informed school, I am comfortable discussing topics with courage, compassion and clarity. 
Homework Offered
Students will be expected to watch videos, complete homework, complete quizzes, and ask/answer questions that are posted in the classroom.
2 - 4 hours per week outside of class
Assessments Offered
This class will consist of guided discussion questions, interactive games (ex. Quizizz, Kahoot, Nearpod, etc), practice worksheets and other materials to show learning.
Grades Offered
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
Some stories involve death, violence, and other sensitive content. Each story is unique and related to the historical events taking place during that time period. I plan to develop class discussions and assignments that promote learning through engagement with sensitive topics. Students will be encouraged to complete required work that may be uncomfortable, grim, offensive, and disturbing. Students will be expected to recognize the diversity of opinions and backgrounds of their classmates. Although violence will occur in some stories, the emphasis will be on the historical context or moral of the story.  Being a public school teacher at a rural, low-income, and trauma-informed school, I am comfortable discussing topics with courage, compassion and clarity.
