Description

Class Experience

I am a New York State certified classroom teacher, certified in English Language Arts and Students with Disabilities.
I have over 12 years of classroom teaching experience.
Students will read approximately 60 pages pages per week for "Esperanza Rising" and 30 pages per week for "A Long Walk to Water" (depending on the length of individual chapters). They will complete some activities each week independently, including questions about the reading, vocabulary activities, and writing assignments. 
Hard copy or digital copy of two novels: "Esperanza Rising" (by Pam Muñoz Ryan) "A Long Walk to Water" (by Linda Sue Park) Printables and downloadables as posted weekly in the Classroom.
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
No live meetings, and an estimated 2 - 4 hours per week outside of class.
In Esperanza Rising, the main character's father is killed, and her uncle tries to pressure her mother into marrying him. He burns their house down, and they decide to move to the US to work as migrant workers. The book discusses social status and poor working conditions for migrant workers. 

In A Long Walk to Water, there are many references to guns and war violence, as well as separation and loss of family members. There are also animal-related deaths.
