Description

Class Experience

This class is taught in English.
Students will improve reading comprehension through discussion and Socratic Questioning.
I have taught middle and high school English Language Arts for 15 years. I have taught English literature and composition for advanced students preparing for private high schools with even higher aspirations of attending ivy league schools. I have taught at all grade levels from grades 4 through 12. I have tutored adult college students in these areas as well. I have taught students with minimal English and have taught seventh grade students who read at first grade level. I have achieved great success for myself while completing courses in my doctoral program.
Students will read at home and be ready to share their thoughts in class regarding content from each chapter.
The Bridge Home by Padma Venkatraman This fiction novel can be found here: https://www.amazon.com/Bridge-Home-Padma-Venkatraman/dp/1524738131/ref=sr_1_1?crid=EORYMM2FH42I&keywords=the+bridge+home&qid=1636130745&sprefix=the+bridge+home%2Caps%2C90&sr=8-1
Verbal feedback will be provided immediately and comprehension will be monitored by the teacher throughout class.
1 hour 40 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
***Students must have their camera turned on. This is not a lecture type of class. Students will be encouraged to participate and usually do so easily. Your student's presence adds to the atmosphere of the class. If you student is unwilling to keep their cameras on, I will dismiss them from class. Engagement is key in student understanding and I need to see a visual to gauge your student's participation and understanding so that I may reteach a topic or review if necessary.***
