Class Experience

I have been teaching cross-curicular novel studies for several years. I have an honor's degree in English from the University of East Tennessee with a specialization in global and youth literature. I have taken several classes on multicultural literature and social studies and decolonizing education. I have a background in theatre and story tellling. 
Students will be assigned reading and watch an episode of the Netflix show each week. Students will create a final writing project that is an analytical essay. 
Learners will need the novel "Mysterious Benedict Society" by Trenton Lee Stewart as well as a notebook and pencil. They will also need to view the television series of the same name. 
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
Students will receive written feedback reports. 
45 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
We will be using Nearpod during class. It does not require a login or any additional information other than student's first name. 
The novel discusses brief non-graphic violence typical of middle-grades fiction novels. For information on the television show and suitability for your learner, you can check this resource: https://www.commonsensemedia.org/tv-reviews/the-mysterious-benedict-society.
