Class Experience

In this 8-week course, students will read and analyze informational texts and write a short argument based on the common core standards. They will learn how to organize, identify, and write claims and counterclaims and use textual evidence to support their evidence.
I have been teaching English Language Arts for 20 years and have a master's in education.  When writing our argument essay, I will offer topic choices that are not politically or religiously controversial.
Students may need to finish activities outside of class if they don't finish in class.
Learners should have a writing utensil, notebook paper, and access to a word processing program such as Word. All handouts, rubrics, outlines, articles, and anything else will be posted in the classroom prior to each class.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
Learners will receive continuous informal assessment, but if a parent requests a formal assessment, I will provide and use a grading rubric.
50 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
