Description

Class Experience

Students will learn to analyze good books for vocabulary, plot, symbolism, character, and themes. Class structure is flipped, meaning that learners read chapters at home and then come to class prepared to discuss with the group. I provide a packet of tools and discussion questions before every class so students can be confident sharing with the group. I aim to foster a warm and convivial atmosphere with plenty of games and projects amid the serious work of literary analysis.
As an American Studies major at UC Berkeley, I researched Classical Education theory and practice in the US and I minored in Classical Studies, the history and cultures of Ancient Greece- and Rome. As a former working class kid, I believe that every child should have access to a high-quality liberal arts education. I offer learning opportunities that exceed state standards and spark a deep love of learning. I love my work helping families access a top quality education out of the private schools and into the home. 

I’m a public charter teacher as well as a homeschool educator in my third decade of sharing my love of learning with kids Preschool through 8th Grade. I have been teaching groups online and out in the world since long before I began homeschooling my oldest child in 2012.

As it has for everyone, the Covid era has made even more clear to me just how important positive connection is for kids and teens. I'm grateful to Outschool for being an avenue for making friends and developing positive relationships in the lives of our young people.  
Students will read two-three chapters a week at home before class and they will have access to a pdf packet of book notes, literary analysis tools, and discussion prompts to encourage good class discussion and reinforce learning between classes. 
Students should have the book and basic art supplies such as paper and markers. I will also provide a supplementary pdf packet to reinforce concepts at home. This will be posted in the classroom no later than the Sunday before each class meeting.
I provide weekly feedback to learners themselves via Outschool message, and I am happy to provide a grade or simply share observations at parent request. 
55 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
Some action in this book may be scary to some learners. To others it will be thrilling. Please choose books based on your family's preferences.  Also, while this book is beloved by some as a religious allegory, the approach we will take to it in this class is secular and inclusive, focusing instead on other literary attributes. 
The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe, by C.S. Lewis
PDF packet I will post weekly in our classroom

About Me

I believe every learner deserves a high quality, content-rich liberal arts education, and I know kids learn best in groups and when they are having fun. I create classes with these goals in mind.
