I have been a middle school reading teacher and have taught these topics for 15 years.
Students will need to read sections of the book before some classes.
Students/parents will need to purchase (or borrow from the library) a copy of “I Survived The Destruction Of Pompeii, 79AD” by Lauren Tarshis. Each student must have their own copy of the book in order to fully participate in the course.
Students will be informally assessed throughout the lessons.
1 hour 30 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
