Class Experience

The learning goals for this unit are for students to be able to research a topic, create a bibliography, and construct an argument paper that includes a counterclaim and rebuttal.
I have taught middle school ELA for sixteen years. Constucting an argument is one of my favorite things to teach.
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
The lesson structure offers opportunities for assessment as the lessons progress. The teacher will check for comprehension and understanding through the written assignments and discussions on FlipGrid.
No live meetings, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
