Description

Class Experience

Learners will improve, practice, and discover:
• How to analyze a book cover and title
• How to make predictions and ask questions while reading
• How to summarize by discussing the plot, conflict, and resolution in a story
• How to compare and contrast characters based on their actions, traits, and motives
Students will be asked to read between 1-2 chapters independently outside of class meetings. We will then review the chapters during the following meeting, before continuing on in class. 

Students will complete thought provoking activities such as character analysis, reading comprehension, and expression through art.
Students will share their assignments in the next meeting, which will be part of the review at the beginning of the session. Any worksheets needed will be provided to each student.

They may also benefit from having pencil and paper to take notes. Lexile Measure: 870L AR Points: 1.0 Chapters: 7 Pages: 96 About the book: Eleanor Estes’s The Hundred Dresses won a Newbery Honor in 1945 and has never been out of print since. At the heart of the story is Wanda Petronski, a Polish girl in a Connecticut school who is ridiculed by her classmates for wearing the same faded blue dress every day. Wanda claims she has one hundred dresses at home, but everyone knows she doesn’t and bullies her mercilessly. The class feels terrible when Wanda is pulled out of the school, but by that time it’s too late for apologies. Maddie, one of Wanda’s classmates, ultimately decides that she is "never going to stand by and say nothing again." Each meeting students will be given an assignment. Students will complete thought provoking activities such as character analysis, reading comprehension, and expression through art. They will have the opportunity to share their assignments in the next meeting, which will be part of the review at the beginning of class. Any worksheets needed will be provided to each student. --------------------------------------------------------- ** Assigned home reading may change depending on group reading speed. Students will be reading 1-2 chapters each day. ** As per Outschool policy, only the registered student is able to take this class. If siblings or friends want to join, they must be registered.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
2 hours 30 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
