Class Experience

Learners will be able to describe the plot, characters, and themes of novels.
Learners will be able to discuss novels with their peers.
I graduated from Brigham Young University in 2015 with a degree in English education and have been teaching English/Language Arts in the classroom and online ever since.
Learners will be expected to come to class having read the book each week. The amount of time this will take will depend on each learner's reading abilities, although each of the books are under 400 pages, with the longest being "The Night Gardener" at 350 and the shortest being "Bunnicula" at 98.
Learners will need access to the book for each week, whether online or a hard copy. All the books are in print and can be found in bookstores or on sites such as Amazon. Any handouts required will be shared with students in the Outschool classroom at least three days before class.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
45 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 2 - 4 hours per week outside of class.
These books vary in content, although they are all considered horror stories and should therefore not be read by any learners sensitive to that type of material. Please check sources such as Common Sense Media to determine if your learner is ready to read each book.
"The Witches" by Roald Dahl
"The Night Gardener" by Jonathan Auxier
"Bunnicula" by Deborah Howe
"Coraline" by Neil Gaiman
