Class Experience

I am a certified teacher for elementary education and have used this book study in a 4th grade class.  
Students will be required to read chapters of Holes outside of classtime. Videos will be provided of Mrs. Oberkrom reading aloud the chapters, however, students are encouraged to follow along with the book (there is a free pdf of the book available online).

Videos will be provided of Mrs. Oberkrom reading aloud the chapters, however, students are encouraged to follow along with the book (there is a free pdf of the book available online).
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
40 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
According to Common Sense Media, "Parents need to know that Louis Sachar's Holes is a funny, moving, and sometimes violent story that has an edge kids really respond to. Parents may want to talk to their children about the unfairness of Stanley's life, and the cold-hearted viciousness of some of the characters." There are some physically violent parts of the book where boys get into fights, a character is hit with a shovel, and there is a story of racial violence in a flashback from 100 years earlier. This includes a man being shot for kissing a woman of a different race. 
Videos will be provided of Mrs. Oberkrom reading aloud the chapters, however, students are encouraged to follow along with the book (there is a free pdf of the book available online).
