Class Experience

Each book club class will take a deep dive into one aspect of literature as well as discuss the three main objectives for primary literature: plot, setting, characters. This class will build a character map about the puppy, Pugsley. Students will build communication skills when they are given an opportunity to review the week's book and tell the class what they liked and disliked about it. Team-building and negotiation skills will be developed as the class must decide on a star rating for this book after everyone has had a chance to give their review. I will hold a short (5 minute) story time from "Pugsley" in order to allow children to experience a weekly read aloud. This class will culminate in a fun puppy-inspired craft.  This will enable the students to develop their communication skills even further since free talk will be an expectation during this time of the lesson. 
I hold a master's degree with an emphasis in reading.  I teach special education and am adept at keeping younger students focused and excited during online learning. I also hold a TEFL license that qualifies me to teach students learning English.
Students will find the class much more enjoyable if they have read "Pugsley" ahead of time, but they are welcome to attend even if they have not read the book!
A supply list will be emailed to parents prior to class. Learners should borrow or purchase a copy of "Pugsley"
There will be no assessment for this class
50 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
