Description

Class Experience

-Construct word matrices 
-Spell out words using graphemes within the morphemic framework
I have been a college professor for ten years in pharmacy and medical education.  I also have my Masters in Education/special needs.  I have always found the construction of our English words fascinating - hepatomegaly, appendicitis, cardiomyopathy...  When my children began having reading/writing difficulties in school, I scoured the research databases in search of the best and evidence based methodologies.  I use a multi-faceted approach when investigating the English language.  We will cover the morphology, etymology and phonology of the word.  But of course, acquisition of the English language requires more vastness and so we will also talk about syntax and grammar.  We will take the deep dive!

I always gravitated to the behavioral sciences as faculty in Colleges and Universities.  I am well versed in emotional intelligence, mindfulness and cultural competency.  I am very comfortable navigating these discussions in the classroom.  I welcome dialogue in my classroom on all subjects that students would like to explore.
-Find intriguing and interesting vocabulary so we can investigate them for next class
-Freely write sentences and essays
-Read, read, read
Just an open, curious, and exploratory mind! You may want to buy a good dictionary like Webster or Oxford, Thesaurus, Oxford School Dictionary of Word Origins by John Ayto or another etymology dictionary
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
-Writing samples
-Word matrices
-Word families
-Concept maps
-If you need a formal write up for your head teacher/school, I am happy to provide this as well.
1 hour 40 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
If your child has dyslexia, IEP or getting supports in school for reading and writing, it would be great if you could join us in class.  I will give tools to both you and your child so we can optimize our learning in the classroom to home.
A great dictionary like Oxford or Webster dictionary.  Thesaurus.  Etymology dictionary such as John Ayto's Oxford School Dictionary of Word Origins
