Class Experience

The students will practice:
Reading with expression (if they choose) 
Comprehending story events
Discussing the story (plot, prediction, climax, etc.)
Connecting the events that show how the story's mystery was solved
Making inferences based on the story knowledge
I have tutored reading and reading comprehension as an English as a Second Language teacher for three years. I have also tutored elementary reading for an additional 2 years. I have a master’s in geography and more than ten years of experience teaching children. I have been teaching this class with Steven Smith's books for a few months now. We have completed the tenth book and are loving them so far. Adventure, mystery, and comedy, what could be better?
The students will be responsible for completing a portion of the book for homework. Each week, we will be responsible to read 40-50 pages. Whatever, we do not complete in class will be left for the student to complete for homework. For example, if we read 20 pages in class, the student will need to complete the remaining section at home before the next class. I will assign pages to complete at the end of each class.

There is no formal assessment, but we will practice reading comprehension skills throughout the class. The final quiz game will also test the learner's knowledge of the book.
55 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
This is a fiction story, but the author does a great job of adding bits of U.S. history to educate the reader. This book describes trips that the kids take around southwest Virginia. These trips help them to solve a mystery and expose bad characters. The kids often get into scraps that include having guns pointed at them (as in book two), etc. The main characters are never permanently injured and are always safe in the end. As with the other books, there are slightly scary scenes and other "close call" situations. Overall, it is a fun book with lots of action and adventure. It has moments of great climax, but is also educational and always ends well. This particular book details a search for the solution to an actor's mysterious death threat and accident on stage. This mystery includes an actor's death threat and "accident", ghosts and haunted hotels, and historic wolf attacks. We will only address the details in the book. As with other classes in this series, this class focuses on reading and reading comprehension. 

In my class, I always ask what the learners think of the story and keep an eye on their well-being during class. I also endeavor to address any bad behavior or attitude portrayed in the book and discuss alternative and positive reactions. I always suggest that parents take a look at the book and ensure that their child would enjoy it before reading the book in class.

Though this book includes historic events that we do endeavor to learn, we do not focus on the arguments concerning the events in history. We focus on the content in the book. If the book’s content of events is inaccurate or negligent in accounting for all sides or peoples in history, I will address it to present accurate balanced information. Everyone in my class will feel welcome. Our focus will be on reading and reading comprehension.
