Class Experience

Students will learn to discuss with they are reading in a clear manner and will learn important critical reading skills such as summarizing, analyzing word choice, analyzing fantasy characters, and problem and solution.
Students will read about 50 pages each week and complete a worksheet in Google Forms.
Learners will need a copy of The Black Cauldron by Lloyd Alexander
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
Students will be assessed informally through teacher feedback.
No live meetings, and an estimated 2 - 4 hours per week outside of class.
The Black Cauldron is high fantasy and therefore contains strong themes of good and evils. The bad guys are bad and could be scary for some readers. There are also some characters who die in this book. 

Students will be provided with links to Google Forms for their homework assignments. Learners do not need a Google account to fill out the form. If you would prefer to have your learner not use Google Forms, please send me a message and we can work out another way for them to complete the assignments.
