Students will practice applying the reading comprehension strategies of summary, inference, and prediction
Before our first class, students are asked to read the first short chapter of the book. Before each subsequent class, students are asked to read two short chapters as they complete a worksheet to guide their comprehension. **Students who do not complete their reading will have a difficult time participating in class.**
Your child will need access to a copy of My Father's Dragon. This book is widely available through booksellers and libraries. Since the title has entered public domain in the USA, a digital copy can be accessed free here: http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/30017 Handouts for homework will be available in the classroom tab following our first meeting.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
