It's Library Time with Ms. Couch! Before starting the story, we’ll talk about what a character is. Then we’ll go into HERO and VILLAIN. We’ll look at the cover of That is Not a Good Idea and have students make predictions of who the goose and fox are. We’ll read the story straight through the first time.

My name is Amber Couch. I have been working in education for almost two decades as a homeschool English teacher, a middle and high school librarian, and an elementary teacher. I am a graduate of Nevada State College with a Bachelor's of Science in Elementary Education and a Masters of Science in Library Science from the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill. The best part of my job is helping students find their next favorite book. It brings me great joy to talk about books with kids, teachers, or parents. I can talk magic schools, dragons, space odysseys, love triangles, and tragic teenage angst all day. All my English lessons start with a novel, and are supported with articles, websites, virtual field trips, and cross-curricular units that delve into history, science, anthropology, and even astronomy.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
Students will participate in weekly class discussions on topics related to the books.
35 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
