How does an "Ongoing" course work?
Meets on a weekly schedule, join any week, no need to catch up on previous material
Live video chats, recorded and monitored for safety and quality
Discussions via classroom forum and private messages with the teacher
Automatic payment every Sunday, cancel any time
Great for clubs and for practicing skills
How Outschool Works
There are no open spots for this class, but you can request another time or scroll down to find more classes like this.
***Please note that the same passage is used for each class. If you sign up for multiple classes, you will be working through the same passage. In this class, students will read a new passage every week and practice their reading comprehension skills through discussion of the text. I will review multiple comprehension skills (context clues, author's purpose, text features, main idea, inferencing, synonyms & antonyms, etc.) during this class. Each new passage will not connect to any other...
Comprehension skills: inferencing, main idea/supporting details, author's purpose, cause and effect, compare and contrast, draw conclusions, figurative language, plot, point of view, sequence of events, theme, summarizing, synonym/antonym, word recognition, dictionary, literary devices, etc.
Students will need: A print out of the reading passage and questions for each class and a copy of the test-taking strategies we will use in class (Provided before class begins)
Informal assessment of students will occur in class to guide instruction. Questions will be reviewed with the whole group to guide understanding. The students will be able to walk away from this class knowing their strengths and weaknesses from the passage.
55 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
