Class Experience

Students will learn the reading and writing skills that are found within a traditional middle school language arts curriculum. Skills include the following: literary analysis via interpretation of plot, theme, foreshadowing, setting, symbols, conflict, mood, and resolution. Depiction of each will be examined via visual media (The Twilight Zone) and print (The Time Machine). Essays written each Friday will allow for a comprehensive assessment of skills from the week. 
As a middle school teacher of over 20 years, I have been designing and presenting similar lessons on a consistent basis, and they are extremely effective and engaging. Each has been the favorite of my students. I have spent the last year designing these lessons to guarantee that they address the requirements of a traditional middle school language arts curriculum.

While teaching and continuing graduate work in the field of education for over 20 years, I have also studied film and television, and its viability as a source of literacy instruction. I like to teach with The Twilight Zone, because each episode is made with the same level of integrity as a well-made film. It is an extremely effective resource for literacy instruction.
Homework should take 45 minutes to 1 hour each day outside of class time.
Students will need one of the following: a Netflix account, access to video via Amazon Prime, or a DVD set of The Twilight Zone. Students should have a device (i.e. a phone) that can be used for uploading original videos. Students can purchase a copy of The Time Machine, or use the free copy that is available via
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
Students will be assessed with a letter grade and anecdotal information. The assessment will be based on the average of the checklists used to score weekly writing assignments.
No live meetings, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
