Class Experience

Students will evaluate strengths and weaknesses in their own listening and processing skills.
I have been a middle and high school English Language Arts teacher for a decade. I also coached teams for Odyssey of the Mind and Lego First Robotics. I have two boys ages 8 and 10.
Bring a sketchbook from the dollar store. Find the cheapest one you can find. We will write all over it.
You might want to bring colored pencils. Dollar store erasers are my favorite, because they erase really well and smell like grape.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
Visual assessment with feedback provided throughout class
45 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
