Description

Class Experience

In this course students will do the following:
Ask and answer questions to demonstrate understanding of a text, referring explicitly to the text as the basis for the answers.

Determine the main idea of a text; recount the key details and explain how they support the main idea.

Refer to details and examples in a text when explaining what the text says explicitly and when drawing inferences from the text.

Determine the meaning of words and phrases as they are used in a text, including figurative, connotative, and technical meanings; analyze how an author uses and refines the meaning of a key term or terms over the course of a text 

Analyze a complex set of ideas or sequence of events and explain how specific individuals, ideas, or events interact and develop over the course of the text.

Determine two or more central ideas of a text and analyze their development over the course of the text, including how they interact and build on one another to provide a complex analysis; provide an objective summary of the text.

Cite strong and thorough textual evidence to support analysis of what the text says explicitly as well as inferences drawn from the text, including determining where the text leaves matters uncertain.


Analyze in detail how an author’s ideas or claims are developed and refined by particular sentences, paragraphs, or larger portions of a text (e.g., a section or chapter).
I am not only a homeschool mom of three but also an educator.  I have been teaching for over 18 years.  Most of my life what I had to learn about African or African American History had to come outside of the classroom.  I completed AFAM 162: African American History: From Emancipation to the Present with Prof. Jonathan Holloway from Yale University and I would love to share my knowledge with you.

Hidden Figures addressed topics of segregation and racism, specificallyJim Crow Laws.  When these topics come up I will  provide accurate, historical context using resources like Britannica for Kids https://kids.britannica.com/kids/article/Jim-Crow-laws/599873. I will direct learners to their parents for futher discussion before engaging in sensitive topics/questions as they may arise.
