Description

Class Experience

Students will improve public speaking skills and build confidence while speaking with others.
Students will improve reading fluency and comprehension.
Students may find newspaper cartoons that they would like to share, even if the cartoon is from a previous date.
Students may bring their own copy of the newspaper for the day or send me a link before class to share a digital form.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
1 hour 20 minutes per week in class, and no time outside of class.
The newspaper comics do touch on events happening in the locally or throughout the world from time to time. We always read the comics after I have reviewed them. So if something appears culturally sensitive, I will skip it or present it differently that day. I will remind students to write to me in chat via the lesson, if there is something that they find that meets that above description. They can also write me after class and I will discuss the topic without discussing the student's name.
