Class Experience

This class is taught in English.
Students will become familiar with the location and features of selected lakes on four continents and gain background knowledge and rare-word vocabulary from a specific domain that will enhance their reading comprehension of nonfiction text.
I have taught this course for several years as a full-time, certified Elementary School teacher at the District of Columbia Public Schools.
Each weekly selection to be read independently is an average of 1400 words. The Reading Level is 6th grade.  Written assignments are designed to be completed as students read.  The amount of time necessary to complete the assignments will depend on the learner. 
The text for this course is the World Lakes, available as a free download at
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
  • padlet
  • quizlet
I will provide feedback on all submitted assignments.  Completed work can be compiled into a portfolio.  If requested I will provide a letter grade and certificate.
No live meetings, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
