Class Experience

This course is taught in three sessions. 
The first session is an introduction of the note taking process. The instructional delivery process is direct instruction. The second session is more of a back and forth between students and instructor similar to what would happen in a study session with other students. The third session involves the students as teachers and the course instructor as a coach who asks questions and makes suggestions.  
I am offering this class to provide support for middle-grade and high school students in need of improving comprehension skills when reading expository texts. My 30+ years of service as a 6th, 7th, and 8th-grade reading language arts teacher and an elementary multiple subjects teacher with  responsibilities for teaching study skills make me a good fit for teaching this class. 
 3 files available upon enrollment
Students need to print the SQP3RS and Cornell Notes recording document for each session. Expository articles used in class will be posted in digital form for students to view from their computers. Hard copies of articles will be posted to the classroom the day of each session for student to print if desired.
3 hours per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
The expository articles used during instruction do not have inappropriate content.
