Description

Class Experience

Students will explore and discuss the themes, plot, and character development in Neal Schusterman's novel Scorpion Shards.
I am a certified teacher with an endorsement in middle school English.  I have a passion for young adult fiction and exploring how writers craft their stories.  I have been tutoring and teaching reading, literature, English, and writing online for nearly a decade.  I have worked with students from elementary through college age, including those who are English language learners.
Learners will need to read the chapters of the book that we will be discussing ahead of time.  The amount of time this will take will vary depending upon the learner's reading speed and comprehension.
Students will need a copy of Neal Schusterman's Scorpion Shards, which is the first book in the Star Shards trilogy. This can be obtained at Amazon.com or Barnes and Noble. It would also be helpful for learners to have a second device (a phone or tablet work well) in order to more easily participate in Kahoot! activities.
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
Learner progress will be assessed through class discussion and learner responses to guiding questions.
