Short Stories: A Mini - Flexible Unit

In this course, students will read a short story each week and will work through analyzing them for literary elements by breaking down the text, analyzing it, and completing mini-activities that build to a final project or written piece.

Class Experience

This class is taught in English.
Students will be able to:
     - Plot a Diagram for each Story
     - Define and Identify Setting, Character, Theme, Symbolism
     - Define and Identify one and Mood
     - Read, Discuss, and Analyze a Short Story and Video 
     - Define and Identify Types of Iron
     - Comparing and Apply Irony to Real-Life Applications
     - Analyze Evidence
     - Annotate Short Stories for Reading Comprehension
I have taught professionally for many years and short stories are perfect for working with plot diagrams and literary elements all while participating in discussions and debates. Through large classrooms, small groups, and individual tutoring, I have covered each of these stories with their accompanying skills.
By nature of the class, since it is flexible, all work will be completed outside of class.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
No live meetings, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
