Class Experience

Students will practice writing several non-fiction forms: summary, cause and effect, descriptive composition as well as compare and contrast. Students will learn what makes each large group unique as well as some of the diversity found in each group.
I love studying zoology and nature watching on my own time and I took as many zoology classes as I could accommodate during university. I enjoy sharing my enthusiasm with my students and inspiring them to find the natural world as fascinating as I find it.

When I teach in a brick and mortar school I always look for opportunities to bring writing and reading in my science classes. I know some students may be reluctant writers and I want to create a space where they can feel safe to share their ideas through writing.
Students will be assigned a writing assignment each week, sometimes supplemented with video or written resources (no more then a page). 

All efforts to write will be appreciated and given feedback to encourage further growth.

After each class I will provide a google docs link where that weeks writing can be submitted.
Students can use paper and pencils or type their compositions. Student writings can be uploaded through Google Docs using a link I provide.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
55 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
