I am an experienced elementary teacher and reading specialist.
Students will be given any unfinished work for homework. Most students will need time to work on their essays at home (during week 5), since we will spend most of the class time doing the research and planning of the essay. I will also be giving two standards based assessments for homework.
2 files available upon enrollmentI will provide printable pdfs, but students may also complete the work on notebook paper.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
Students will be assessed informally through discussion and answering questions. They will also be assessed through verbal and written responses.

All material is appropriate for upper elementary students.
