Do you love reading Dystopian Fiction? Join this fun and exciting summer book club where we will devour some of the best books out there! Dystopian fiction is a great opportunity for students to take fictional literature and be able to learn about society, how society changes over time, politics, and governance. How will the choices they make impact the future? Students will choose which book they want to read from the following list: Legend, by Marie Lu The Hunger Games, by Suzanne...
This class is taught in English.
Students will improve their understanding of what dystopian fiction is, and its relevance in literature. They will practice their summarization skills, compare and contrast different books, submit projects designed to help them read for content, and interact with their teacher and peers from around the world.
I have a master’s of education in teaching and learning and a graduate certificate in gifted education. Teaching reading for content is one of the most important parts of education today. Professionally, I work with students from 2-18 on reading skills and also teach parents how to read for content and enrichment with their children.
Students will have assigned reading to complete each week in their chosen book, as well as a short activity to complete each week.
Students will need to obtain a copy of their selected book for the class. Their copy of the book can be paper, electronic, or audio. The students will have an art assignment in week 2 that they can complete using any form of art that they choose: drawing, painting, singing, dancing, acting, etc. They will need the material for the form of art they select.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
1 hour per week in class, and an estimated 2 - 4 hours per week outside of class.
Please read the descriptions for your child's book selection to make sure it is one you are comfortable with your child reading and discussing the content.
Excited about learning!
