Class Experience

Students will practice inferencing and deductive reasoning.  Students will have to formulate theories, then use text evidence to support those ideas and opinions. Team work skills will be strengthened through this activity.
I have been a classroom teacher for 19 years.  I have often utilized similar activities in my classroom in order to help students understand and practice listening skills, finding detail/text evidence, and making inferences in a way that is fun and has a "real world" application.
 1 file available upon enrollment
A pencil and a printed copy of the Student Detective packet (will be available for download in the classroom).
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
2 hours 30 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
This class is meant to be a lighthearted and fun way to practice inferencing, visualizing, and deductive thinking.  There are no dark themes or mature content as related to law enforcement or criminal activity.
There is a very short video clip from a "surveillance camera" that shows someone entering into another person's home.  This in an actor pretending to break in.  If your child might be bothered by this, you may want to explain that it is pretend before class starts.
