The reading passages in this class are on a 4th or 5th grade level. In each class, learners will read aloud or follow along as I or other students read the text that I will screen share. The read along is geared more for students who have reading difficulties. Those who are fluent readers are encouraged to participate in taking turns reading the text aloud. - Next, learners will learn comprehension strategies, then together we will practice as we apply the strategies with the given text. -...
The goal of each of these classes is to help students learn strategies to help them more accurately comprehend a range of reading passages.
Over the years I have loved helping children and teens from 2 years old to 19 improve their speech, language, auditory, phonics, reading and brain fitness skills and much more. I meet my students where they are at their level. As I teach, I adjust to help reluctant learners as well as learners who may need or want more challenge. I have decades of experience teaching each of these types of learners within the same class. I try to make my classes engaging and fun. I have a wide range of experience that includes teaching those on the autism spectrum, learning disabled students, add/adhd and many more areas of concern, as well as, experience teaching regular and gifted learners. I have found that patient encouragement in a structured and energetic yet relaxed classroom environment helps learners brains focus to receive information better and helps them become detail oriented.
The teacher will screen share the reading passage and helpful hints/strategies during class then post copies of them and optional practice questions as attachments in the classroom asap after class.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
Learner progress in each individual class is informally assessed based on the learners participation and answers to questions using strategies learned.
35 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
