Class Experience

The goal of this class is to encourage critical thinking, problem solving, and teamwork. 
I have been a middle-school teacher for thirteen years and have written half a dozen adventure novels. I have carefully designed the scenario in this adventure to be exciting and tense, but prevent combat between the students. 
No formal homework is assigned, but students are encouraged to complete the challenge and post their discovery to the classroom if they do not finish the challenge during class.
-Patents will be provided with a PDF copy of the scenario after the class is complete, so students can continue their adventure if they do not finish cracking all of the codes during class time. 
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
Students will be continually encouraged to work in teams and help one another solve problems. 
Parents will be able to measure student learning by the extent of their progress through the Spy Game scenario and the completion of code solving puzzles.
50 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
This class is based on spy fiction. As such, it contains mild references to violence, spies, and tense situations. Students will not be permitted to fight one another in the course of the adventure, but they may be heard discussing "rescuing the prisoner", "disarming the trap" or similar phrases.
