Class Experience

Students learn how to use reading strategies to improve their ability to comprehend what they are reading. 
I offer this class because I am passionate about helping children learn and love to read. I spent nine years working with middle and high school students, many of who struggled with reading and writing. For six of those years, I taught at a school for children with dyslexia. I have found reading strategies are hands down the best way to help kids understand what they are reading. 
There is no homework. Students are, however, encouraged to practice using the strategies independently. The more students practice these strategies the more they will see improvement in their reading comprehension.

Students will need paper and a pen or pencil. I use Nearpod for many of my classes. A link to access the interactive lesson will be posted in the classroom. Parents will also receive a handout explaining how to use Nearpod. Students do not have to signup for Nearpod to access the lesson.
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
All assessment is informal. I access students' understanding by asking questions, encouraging participation, giving examples, using repetition, and making sure to address any challenges I am seeing in a subtle, encouraging way. Students are welcome to ask questions at any time. They are also welcome to message me with specific questions related to their learning style or challenge. 
1 hour per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
I use text appropriate for upper elementary and middle school students. Many of the texts deal with real-life issues.
