Class Experience

 Students will be able to: 
~identity the seven plot elements 
~identify and discuss the various elements of character development 
~identify tone and mood 
~make predictions
~identify simile, metaphor, and personification in the text
~identify conflicts various characters experience 
~write brief summaries of specific passages of the text 
~compare and contrast characters in the text 
I am a certified K-6 and 9-12 grade teacher with 23 years of teaching experience. 
Students will have a reading assignment and a brief writing assignment to complete before each class, as well as a creative final project.
~the ability to print out various handouts provided by teacher, or student may draw/write/copy the handouts on own paper ~highlighter/pencil for annotating (or familiarity with digital annotation tools if using digital copy of text) ~notebook for taking notes (or digital method of note-taking) or sticky notes ~misc. items as needed based on student's choice for final project (poster board, markers, other art supplies)
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
I respect the opinions each student/family has about the pros/cons of grading. Families may choose to have no grade given for the class/course or to have a grade given based on the following: 
~attendance 10% 
~participation (discussions and completion of homework and class work in order to be an active participant in each class meeting) 60% 
~final project 30% Students will choose to create one of the following: one-pager, or poster, or drawing, or Venn diagram comparing and contrasting the novel to the movie, or they may suggest a different option.
2 hours per week in class, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
Students will need the novel My Neighbor Totoro in hard copy or digital format, but they must be able to annotate the text.
