Description

Class Experience

During book club discussions, students will have the opportunity to engage in discussions related to the book of the month with their peers aimed at deepening understandings while analyzing the characters, plot, setting, theme(s), and/or author’s purpose, among other topics.    
Ms. Heather is a certified educator with 20 years teaching experience.  I've taught both elementary and middle school, as well as been a gifted education teacher for half of my teaching career.  Gifted education is a special passion of mine so many of my classes are tailored towards gifted and/or high-level learners, however I'm happy to work with any student who is interested in learning and growing.  My ultimate goal is to create classes and activities which encourage students to step up their thinking with a little bit of challenge, all while having fun in a safe, nurturing, and caring environment.  
Students should follow the outlined reading schedule and come to live class prepared with their readings completed.  
Reading response journals are also highly recommended to keep 
Students will need access to each book. These can be obtained from the public library, as an ebook, or purchased. It is also recommended that students keep a reading response journal to record their reading reflections in. This can simply be a notebook.
45 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
"Hatchet" is about a city boy is stranded in the Canadian wilderness, equipped with nothing but a hatchet and the clothes on his back. Readers get a riveting view of Brian's struggle to survive for the next two months, forever changing his attitude toward 20-century civilization.
