This expertly designed course filled with super-engaging activities and experienced instruction is all that your child(age 9-12) needs for a whole semester of Language Arts learning.

(I also offer two other companion grade 4-6 Language Arts semester courses using different novels which cover more of the ELA curriculum. Take all three for a complete year of...
This class is taught in English.
I am a career English Language Arts Teacher and have taught English Language Arts to Middle Years learners for over 25 years. I am known for being encouraging to all learners no matter what the skill level. I am highly experienced in differentiating instruction to suit each students' needs. I am also known for being passionate about whatever book we are reading or piece we are writing, which has translated into my students feeling excited about reading/writing too! I am a veteran at modelling good reading/writing behaviors specific for Middle Years learners to observe. It has been my absolute pleasure to teach and inspire thousands of learners!
Most of the reading and writing assignments will be done as homework in between our twice weekly meetings. There will be approximately 20-50 pages of independent reading assigned in between each meeting.
-Students will need a binder or folder to keep written assignments in. Students may also store their assignments in a digital format if that is preferred to binders or folders. -Students will need the following novels for this course, either in digital form or a hard copy: “Number the Stars” by Lois Lowry “The Borrowers” by Mary Norton “Where the Red Fern Grows” by Wilson Rawls
Upon request, detailed written assessments, letter grades, and/or percentage grades can be provided for your learners’ Language Arts reporting needs/portfolios. I will communicate several written reports on learners’ progress especially as it relates to reading and writing.
1 hour 40 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 2 - 4 hours per week outside of class.
Parents please note that the novel "Where the Red Fern Grows", although critically acclaimed and a wonderful book, contains a few scenes that might be hard for sensitive kids to read. The book includes descriptions of hunting, as well as a scene where a boy falls on an ax. The ending is very touching and well written, but also sometimes hard for animal-loving kids to read. I have taught this book many times to children in this age group. I will let all students/parents know in the homework assignments exactly when these scenes are coming up. We will not be talking about any gory scenes in detail during class time, although if the topics are brought up by students, I will facilitate a short, respectful discussion.
