Join me as we investigate a new literary device each week! We will take a closer look at the way in which these devices are used by authors, dig deeper into why they are used, and learn how to better connect to the literature we read.

Class Experience

US Grade 5 - 8
-Students will improve their understanding of the literary devices used by authors across genres.
-Students will learn to better connect and understand the literature they read by thinking critically about the devices used.
-Students will be able to apply literary devices to their own creative writing. 
Optional homework assignments will be given for the learners to apply the knowledge they gain in class. 
Most classes will require a notebook/pencil. All worksheets needed will be provided by the teacher. If the learner prefers to play games like Kahoot on a separate device, then that will also be needed. 
I will informally assess learner understanding through questioning, interactive in-class projects, and games. 
50 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
