Description

Class Experience

Students will practice research skills including but not limited to: evaluating sources for reliability, choosing a topic that is not too broad or too narrow and how to take and organize notes when completing research
Informational writing skills include the following: how to write and follow an outline, how to write an informative, yet interesting introduction, how to write with clarity, how to be a productive peer editor, and how to read your piece for grammar and mechanics. 
I have a Master's of Education degree and I am a certified teacher with over ten years experience in education. I am certified in K-6 elementary education, 7-12 social studies education, 7-12 language arts education, and K-12 Reading education. 
Students are expected to complete research, writing, and modules.
Any handouts required will be provided in the module
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
I will give specific, targeted feedback for each task assigned. 
No live meetings, and an estimated 2 - 4 hours per week outside of class.
Students are self-selecting their research topics.  I suggest you check in with your learner so you are both on the same page about what is allowable and what isn't. Students will also be responsible for their own research. While I will cover reliable sources, a discussion about internet safety might be in order. 

Students will use the following outside resources: Gimkit, Khan Academy, Nearpod, Flipgrid, and Google Classroom. Accounts will be needed for each if your learner doesn't have one. Gimkit is a site used for quizzes to reinforce skills, Khan Academy will be used for videos and practice. We will use Flipgrid and Nearpod for student interaction, for example, a discussion board or a 30 second video about their topic selection. I will use Google Classroom to house modules and materials. 
Students will find their own sources.
