Class Experience

This class is taught in English.
Students will gain comfort speaking in front of others, specifically around sharing their opinions. They will build their critical thinking skills and learn how to be supportive of others.
I've been a certified teacher for 30 years, including being the founder of a progressive middle & high school in Seattle (in 1994). I have a warm way of engaging with students who typically come away feeling cared for after attending one of my classes. I love helping students build social-emotional skills, and I love discussing literature with people. In this class, I get to do both!
Students should expect to read approximately 4-6 short chapters each week (~30 pages), which for most readers this age will take them no more than 45 minutes to read.
The novel "Stargirl" by Jerry Spinelli. Easily available at most bookstores and libraries.
45 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
