Description

Class Experience

Students will:
- increase their critical thinking skills.
- understand asking questions requiring deep thinking.
- improve on their communications skills.
- will have fun! 
In the classroom I realized that if my students could think, they could handle any thing thrown at them regardless of the situation. I worked to set up ample opportunities to express themselves appropriately, both in speech and in writing. I truly believe that by fostering these skills in students, we increase their potential for success. By creating a culture of critical thinking, students develop skills that allow them to problem solve, work in groups effectively, and express themselves powerfully.

Choosing an item to share with your classmates.
Guardians will need to choose a G-rated movie for the student to watch and review (like a film critic)
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
Learners are assessed through activities in class as well as homework.
1 hour per week in class, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
i topics will be highly engaging and age appropriate. Discussions will be moderated by me. I want the students to feel free to express themselves while providing evidence and facts. 
We will be referring to the Depth of Knowledge Chart, a basis for School Districts around the nation for teaching critical thinking.
