Class Experience

Learning Goals:
-to enjoy a short children's chapter book written by a critically acclaimed author and naturalist
-to share the joy of reading with others
-to practice small group discussion skills such as listening, responding to others respectfully, and stating opinions respectfully
-to learn about plot, setting, and character development
-to learn how to decode tricky words and read for meaning
-to practice reading small sections aloud with expression and fluency 
-to broaden geography knowledge about the Canadian prairies, a unique environment in North America
I am a certified teacher with 26 years of experience in Canadian classrooms.  I specialize in Middle Years English and have led hundreds of book clubs. “Owls in the Family” has been part of my classroom literature collection for many years. Growing up on the Canadian prairies I can certainly relate and speak to the author’s unique point of view. 
Homework: 15-25 pages per week
Learners will need a copy of “Owls in the Family” by Farley Mowatt from the local library, or a copy can be purchased from Amazon or EBay for $3-$7.
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
  • Google maps
Informal ongoing assessment will take place during the Outschool video sessions through questions and discussions about the novel.
45 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
