In this ongoing class, learners will encounter a different non-fiction text each week. They will have time to independently read the text before tackling comprehension questions. We will discuss our answers as well as the text itself.

Class experience

US Grade 7 - 10
This class is taught in English.
Learners will develop the reading stamina, their comprehension skills and their general knowledge about influential people from history.
I'm Ms. Riot, a creative teacher (certified, qualified and experienced) from London, England. My teaching adventure began at university with the completion of my 4-year degree (Bachelor of Arts with Honours in Primary Education) back in 2007. 

In the UK, we achieve our QTS (Qualified Teacher Status) through additional exams and proven experience which I also achieved in 2007. My dissertation allowed me to carry out research into how we can motivate young learners to want to read more.  I completed one of my student teaching placements in Arizona, USA and I worked as the Literacy Lead for two summers at a not-for-profit camp in New York, USA.

As an elementary classroom teacher, I developed creative classrooms where students felt safe enough to fail. My passion for reading also allowed me to develop a new career as a high school librarian, teaching reading lessons across the school. I have also taught students English up to the age of 16 at a prestigious online school.

More recently, I have worked within the learning department in a large museum, teaching at a range of online schools and designing curriculum for education resource companies. I also deliver lectures to trainee teachers.

At the heart of my teaching philosophy lies a belief that learning should be an adventure, sprinkled with curiosity and laughter. We can be serious about learning without it always being too serious.
Learners will be reading a text that can be between 3-5 pages long. They should feel able to tackle this, but it is provided ahead of class. New vocabulary will be discussed, and any questions are welcomed.
The text will be provided ahead of lesson time, and learners often benefit from having a printed copy to use during class.
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
When learning about influential people, topics such as inequality, racism, climate change and politics will often be relevant. 
The comprehension texts come from Beyond English (https://www.twinkl.co.uk/resources/keystage3-ks3/keystage3-ks3-english) and have been selected to represent a varied selection of influential people.
