Class Experience

The aim of this course is to strengthen argumentative writing skills. Students will learn to develop strong claims, analyze textual evidence, and craft well-supported arguments.
6 years developing curriculum in literacy, theatre, & English Language Arts
3 years teaching original curriculum in 6th-12th grade Humanities, ELA, Honors, and AP
5 years working one-on-one with 6th-12th grade
As an optional activity following class, students will craft a CEW paragraph defending their conclusion of the final riddle. 
 1 file available upon enrollment
A digital, printable copy of the riddles and activity page will be provided.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
If participating in the post-class assignment, students will receive feedback on whether or not their conclusion is correct, and - depending on the strength of argument - will learn whether or not their suspected villain ends up behind bars!
1 hour per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
