Class Experience

As an undergraduate, I completed a minor in English literature and creative writing. Reading is one of the great loves of my life and I find such pleasure in sharing it with children. Literature can provide a vast educational  experience beyond the joy of the reading itself. A great novel exposes readers to history, culture and strong social messages. It is my mission as a language arts teacher to teach children to look beyond the obvious in books and mine all of the richness they have to offer.

Students will need a copy of "The Midwife's Apprentice", by Karen Cushman. Though it is not required, I have found the book "The Medieval World" by Philip Steele (available on Amazon) to be a fantastic social studies companion to this novel and class. Students will need a binder or folder with brads to keep their workbook pages in. I will provide curriculum for the class.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
50 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
