How does a "Flex" course work?

No scheduled live video chats

As a veteran teacher of more than 23 years, I have found that my bachelor’s degree in Exceptional Education has helped me know HOW to teach and my master’s degree in Curriculum, Instruction, and Assessment has allowed me to design specific curriculum to fit the needs of various learners. All students LEARN DIFFERENTLY based on their strengths and weaknesses.
         I also have the following certifications: Elementary Education K-6, Middle School English 7-9, English 9-12, and Exceptional Student Education K-12. I also have the following endorsements: Reading and ELL (ESOL).
        I have learned that the most productive method of teaching is the application or transfer step. Students LEARN by DOING and they enjoy doing as long as they are engaged in their learning. Once they understand the concept and why it is important to know and how it would benefit them, they should begin applying the skill in an authentic or real-world setting.
REMINDER: This is a flex class.  Flex classes DO NOT meet live. Learners can work at their own pace on their weekly assignments.
Notebook: College Ruled 70 Sheets (for project: My ELA Interactive Notebook for Grade 5). Lined paper (for notetaking) Pencil with eraser Colored Pencils (for annotating/text-coding) Liquid glue (white or clear) Attached files in the classroom. Weekly Activity Sheets (DOWNLOAD & PRINT) The material will be posted on Sundays. A Google account.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
IMPORTANT NOTE: grades are not issued for this course. Keep in mind that the end-of-the-week test is self-grading. Use the data as feedback on specific reading comprehension skills that need to be addressed. If there are additional questions a student has about a skill, please contact me in the classroom messaging portal.

Grades are not issued for this course. Keep in mind that the end-of-the-week test is self-grading using Google Forms and the project is assessed based on weekly completion.
No live meetings, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
“ELA Reading Comprehension Activities” by Literacy Art by Iris (download & print weekly)

A Google account is needed for some of the assignments and activities.
