Class experience

US Grade 5 - 6
I have a Bachelor's Degree in Literature and a Master's Degree in Students with Disabilities. As a certified high school English teacher, I have been teaching these texts in the classroom for over ten years and I am experienced in leading lectures that deal with sensitive race relation topics. I teach in the city of Buffalo, New York and have experience discussing sensitive issues of race, immigration, and conflicts of developing nations with diverse groups of learners that include students who share the refugee experiences of the characters. I have also worked as a co teacher in various grade level Social Studies classrooms so I am experienced in how these texts should tie in with high school Social Studies standards. 
Homework Offered
Assessments Offered
The teacher will informally assess students' knowledge of material assigned by asking questions from the comprehensive study guide. The teacher will provide central idea and summary paragraph assignments that students will be encouraged to complete in order to better assess common core reading and writing standards.
Grades Offered
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
'Bud, Not Buddy' has situations that involve child abuse as the protagonist experiences a very neglectful foster home at the start of the novel. 
'Fever: 1793' is set in Philadelphia during the Yellow Fever Epidemic. Learners who have anxiety surrounding pandemics may find the story triggering. 
Parents should be aware that the novels "Inside Out & Back Again", "Refugee", "I am Malala", and "Revolution is Not a Dinner Party", and "A Long Walk to Water" discuss extreme poverty, discrimination against marginilized groups, war and conflict. While there is not graphic violence in the texts, there is mention of gun violence in guerilla warfare and a main character is shot to death in "A Long Walk to Water".
