Class experience

US Grade 5 - 7
This class is taught in English.
Students will become familiar with events, elites, and artistic achievements of England's Golden Age, Civil War, Restoration, and Bloodless Revolution and gain background knowledge and rare-word vocabulary from a specific domain that will enhance their reading comprehension of nonfiction text.
I have taught this course for several years as a full-time, certified Elementary and Secondary teacher at the District of Columbia Public Schools. In April of 2017, I received an Excellence Award by the Educational Testing Service for Outstanding performance on the PRAXIS II Test for Social Studies Content Knowledge. My unique expertise is in developing and teaching content-rich humanities units that integrate geography, history, literature, science, art, and music.  Additionally, I have developed a repertoire of strategies for teaching reading in the content area to intermediate-age students.
Homework Offered
Each week, students will read and respond to one or two written texts. Assignments are designed to help students engage with the content. The amount of time necessary to complete the assignments will depend on the learner.
1 - 2 hours per week outside of class
Assessments Offered
I will provide feedback on all submitted assignments. Completed work can be compiled into a portfolio. If requested I will provide a letter grade and certificate.
Grades Offered
All of the resources used for this class are available online at no cost. 
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
  • Padlet
