Description

Class Experience

My first goal for my learners is simple joy of reading, being transported into another place and time, and feeling like they are fully living the experience themselves.My main purpose is to encourage the joy of reading , so my questions, and our discussions will be somewhat led by me. However, I will follow the lead and passion of the children, so that their enthusiasm for the story doesn't become a chore to discuss in a pedantic manner.
As a riding instructor, and a coach for many, many years, I understand the power of story,and especially horse stories and the way stories draw us in and we BECOME the character with whom we identify. In this immersion, we visualize ourselves meeting the challenges and disappointments of the characters in the story, thus building new visions of ourselves and our capabilities. This experience can also help label feelings we knew we had, but didn't understand. The vocabulary becomes OUR vocabulary, and we come to understand ourselves better. 
Each week the learners will be asked to read about 4 chapters, or about 40 pages,  in preparation for the next class. They will also be asked to choose a passage in each chapter,  that stood out to them, for any reason, and be prepared to either read it in class, or prerecord their reading to share with the class. Each passage read by the students should be no more than 3 minutes long.
Students will need to purchase, borrow or procure from their library, a copy of Marguerite Henry's "Misty's Twilight". There are 4 books in the series, and I will be offering a club for each book, so getting the set might be a consideration. Scholastic has the set at a reasonable price.  
no assessment
1 hour per week in class, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
