US Grade 8 - 10
This class is taught in English.
Common Core Literacy Standards for grades 8-10:

- Determine the central ideas or information of a primary or secondary source; provide an accurate summary of how key events or ideas develop over the course of the text.
- Analyze in detail a series of events described ina text; determine whether earlier events caused later ones or simply preceded them. 
- Determine the meaning of words and phrases as they are used in a  text, including vocabulary describing political, social, or economic aspects of history/social studies.
- Analyze how a text uses structure to emphasize key points or advance an explanation or analysis
- Identify aspects of a text that reveal an author’s point of view or purpose (e.g., loaded language, inclusion or avoidance of particular facts).
- Interpret words and phrases as they are used in a text, including determining technical, connotative, and figurative
meanings, and analyze how specific word choices shape meaning or tone.
- Analyze the structure of texts, including how specific sentences, paragraphs, and larger portions of the text (e.g., a
section, chapter, scene, or stanza) relate to each other and the whole.
- Produce clear and coherent writing in which the development, organization, and style are appropriate to task, purpose, and audience.

In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
The race-reversal premise of this book effectively illustrates both small and large instances of racism that happen everyday to people of color in real life, effectively inspiring readers to empathize with the have-nots. The book clearly has compassion for underdogs, and displays how power corrupts.
