Class Experience

This class is taught in English.
Students will learn about figurative language and poetry. They will strengthen reading comprehension and analysis skills including summarizing, inferencing, predicting, and making connections. Students will practice communication, cooperation, and leadership skills. Students will have an enjoyable reading experience. 
Students will be expected to read 65 pages between each class - quick pages-since they’re written in verse!) They will write down brief conversation starters, such as something they wondered while reading or an interesting new vocabulary word they discovered.
"Inside Out and Back Again" By Thanhha Lai
1 hour 40 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
Inside Out and Back Again is a story of an immigrant, so we will discuss the difficulties immigrants may face as they adjust to new foods, languages, etc. Ha has to deal with mean students at school who have negative ideas about Vietnamese immigrants. They make ethnic jokes and call her names including "pancake face". We will talk about bullying. The backdrop of this story is the Vietnam War, but readers do not hear much about the war and the story is not violent outside of mean schoolchildren. We will keep our discussion age appropriate and learners will be promptly redirected if they bring up inappropriate content.
